Puppy Adopted By Lady Who Discovered Him After Being Found Sealed Within A Wooden Box (Video)

It was late December in Oklahoma City when someone told Feleciana Ramirez that an Pit Bull had been dumped in a wooden box near the Oklahoma River and that it was still alive.The dog now named Diego to get out of his boxed prison but the dog house’s entrance had been nailed shut and he couldn’t escape.

A Pit Bull sealed shut in a wooden box has found a home with the woman who freed him.

Ramirez went to investigate and spotted a small wooden box. The entrance had been covered with a piece of wood screwed and nailed shut.

“I had a utility ax, and I broke it open, peeked in it, and saw that he was in there,” Ramirez told 9 News Oklahoma of how she first saw Diego. “I was surprised to find anything alive because he wasn’t whimpering. He wasn’t making any kind of noise.”

The dog was cramped inside and she could see he was malnourished and covered with scrapes and abrasions.

Luckily, he was found and rescued. There were scratch marks on the entrance from where he desperately tried to escape. His body is covered in scars and wounds. He is emaciated. He has suffered physically and emotionally, likely far longer than just his time in that box,” Mutt Misfits Animal Rescue Society posted on Facebook on Jan. 1 about Diego

Diego was saved by Mutt Misfits Animal Rescue Group a few days after being sent to OKC Animal Welfare. He went to recover and heal with foster mom Kayla Wise.

“He was very tired, very scared. Just exhausted more than anything, I think, because he slept for a long time,” Wise told 9 News. “His case is the worst that I’ve had in my home.”

“Despite all he’s endured, he is sweet and he is gentle,” Mutt Misfits wrote on Facebook. They placed him up for adoption and among the families looking to take him home was Ramirez and her family. Mutt Misfits interviewed several families and ended up selecting Ramirez.
