In Scott county, two brave men rescued a little puppy that had been discarded. She appears to be an Australian Shep or a Border Collie.

According to Scott County Animal Shelter, the dog was found in a trash bag that was inside another bag along with 3 large rocks. The bag was dumped in the creek in Sadieville on 32 and Boyers Chapel Rd. She had wiggled her little head out of the bag and that was the only thing that could be seen sticking out of the water.

When the men spotted her, one of them jumped into the freezing water and rescued her. Scott County Animal Shelter officials believed that the bag had been tossed over the partially frozen creek.

She was rushed to the hospital where she will be receiving special care treatment.
