This poor puppy was shivering when he was found inside a bin during sub-zero temperatures.

It is feared the 18-month-old dog had been dumped by his owner in Sutton Park in Sutton Coldfield, West Midlands.

But fortunately he was spotted in the bin and taken to Birmingham Dogs Home, where he is recovering from the ordeal.

It is unclear if the terrier cross was dumped or is a stray – but his owner, if he has one, has a week to come forward before he is rehomed.

Community fundraiser Rachel Frost, from Birmingham’s Dogs Home, said: ‘He was found in the bin in Sutton Park at around 6am by wardens who check them each morning.

‘It was freezing that night. It’s hard to say if he was dumped in the bin or took refuge from the cold because he could get in and out of the bin by himself.

‘He was a bit scared, shivering and nervous when he reached us but I think he was grateful when the warden took him out.’

Wardens spotted the animal inside the bin on Friday morning.

He has been vaccinated, fed and given a much-needed warm bed since he arrived at the dogs home.

Rachel added: ‘He had a bit of a sore belly I imagine because he had eaten some of the contents of the bin.

‘He’s OK now and is a lovely young pup. He’s been keeping warm and he’s got a nice warm bed.’

Writing on Facebook, the charity said: ‘The dog wardens were made aware by an employee of Sutton Park and they arrived to find him still inside and shivering to keep warm.

‘He was brought to us by the dog wardens where he was vaccinated, given a nice warm bed, food, water and lots of TLC.

‘No microchip was found so no way of tracing his owners.’
