OHIO (WKYC) - Ohio police are looking for the person who left a deaf puppy on the side of the road in a cardboard box.
Thanks to the Brimfield Police Department, the dog is getting a second chance.
According to a lengthy Facebook posting by the chief of police, the dog was found Saturday.
Chief David Oliver wasn't shy about calling out the person who abandoned the puppy.
"I will say that I can tell a person's character pretty well by seeing how they treat animals," Chief Oliver said in his Facebook post. "Whoever did this lacks character, period. It was mopey behavior."
The dog, since named "Cara", does have a right leg injury and is being taken care of by One of a Kind Pets in Akron, Ohio.
She will be up for adoption around February.
Cara has to go through a two-week vetting and quarantine process.
