One little pup who was abandoned on the cold rural streets of Wisconsin managed to flag down a passerby who took him in.
Tegan G revealed on Twitter that she was on her daily commute when she saw a ‘branch’ move. Trying to investigate what it was, Tegan was startled when a little dog snuck up behind her.
The dog was cold and starving, so she fed him the only thing she had in the car: a cheese string. ‘It was either that or salad,’ she wrote.
The Marine Corps veteran explained how she took the 10-pound pup into work with her but knew she couldn’t stick around, so gathered her things and took him home.
After calling the authorities she learned that the dog’s name was Larry and he had siblings at the Forest County Humane shelter nearby.
She reunited him with his sisters who Larry was delighted to see.
Now Tegan is adopting the puppy and taking him home.

‘I proceeded with my 40-minute commute to work,’ she wrote on the thread.
‘I’m a cat person and it’s been a long time since I’ve been around a puppy. I didn’t know what to do so I tucked him in my vest and took him in to get my laptop and other work items.
INTERESTING FACT ABOUT YOUR PET: Do you have a dog that experiences separation anxiety? Try leaving some clothing with him that you’ve worn. It’s been proven that the scent you leave behind on your clothes can help ease your dog’s separation anxiety.
‘It turns out little Larry has three sisters! A very bad person dumped them in a rural, wooded area not far from our home. His sisters were dropped off yesterday by a friend of the bad person.
‘Which means Larry stayed out overnight, alone. In Northern Wisconsin.’

Tegan had Larry and his sisters stay at the vet for a bit to be tested for worms, dehydration and be given shots.
She shared an image of Larry meeting her cat King who she adopted ten years ago while in the Marine Corps.
‘Larry with the Pink Collar will be a wonderful addition to our home and I hope this little “tail” about my day brought some good into your day,’ she wrote.
It certainly did.
I am off to bed! You all are AMAZING and GOOD. Here's Larry and my oldest, King Leondias of Sparta. I adopted King 10 years ago from the Oceanside HS when I was in the Marine Corps. He was cautious but there was no hissing or bad behavior- just lots of puppy excitement! 😍😍 pic.twitter.com/1S3XfLHRML— Tegan (@TeganG_)
