– Stone Mountain-Redan Patch

Peyton, the shepherd mix pup, who is just barely four months old, was discovered last month in a not-very-heavily traveled part of an Atlanta green-space. He had been dumped into a park trash can by someone and left there.

A cat trapper (community volunteer who traps feral cats for TNR programs) was scouting the area and heard odd noises coming from an oil-drum trash barrel just off the beaten path.

What he found when he checked out the source of the unusual sounds was a young dog covered in trash, tar and grime.

LifeLine Animal Project stepped in and immediately took the puppy and cleaned him up. He was put in a foster home until he could get all his vaccinations and was old enough to keep in their no-kill Dog House in Avondale Estates.
