The Indiana Department of Transportation’s litter crews were cleaning an Indiana highway when they discovered an unexpected, but adorable discovery.
While picking up rubbish, members came upon a little puppy that was alone on the side of the road.
They snapped a few pictures with the friendly pup before bringing him to safety.
The Indiana Department of Transportation shared the photographs on Facebook, stating that one of the crew members brought the puppy home and will get him microchipped as soon as possible.
It’s unclear whether the puppy belonged to someone and was abandoned, or if it was born a stray. He’s now secure and out of harm’s way, which is fortunate because he wouldn’t have lived much longer on the side of the road without food or drink.
If the puppy does not have a microchip and no owner can be traced, it will be put up for adoption or adopted by a member of the team!
