They Couldn’t Believe What They Found In This Chewed Up Carrier. It Changed Their Lives Forever.

Bret Winingar and his son Zach were riding their motorcycles in Arkansas when a strange object caught their eye. They decided to park their bikes and investigate.  What they saw would change their lives forever.

They noticed that the top of the carrier had been chewed. Something was trying to get out.

They opened the carrier and were shocked to see a starving dog inside. The dog came out, but was hunched over from being locked inside for so long.

They quickly left the dog and came back with food. She gobbled it up as fast as possible.

They also returned in a truck so that they could take the dog away.

When she got in the truck, she showed her appreciation.

The first thing they did when they got her home… gave her a bath!

They named her Charlie Bravo. Or CB for short.

Up next was a visit to the vet. Her nails had grown so long, they grew backwards into her paws.

She also had many sores on her body that the vet took care of. They estimated her at eight months old, but who knows how long she was in the carrier.

From the look of her nails and the fact that her white paws were black with filth, they figured she was in the carrier for a long time.

Bret was only planning on fostering CB, but couldn’t part with her after regaining some health.

And who could blame him?

Charlie Bravo is now safe in a loving home.

They made a Facebook page detailing CB’s journey, and donations poured in to help with medical bills.

The donations exceeded the cost of the bills, so the rest was donated to local animal shelters.

The family now has four rescue dogs living with them and plan on starting their own foundation for rescues.
