Wade Shapp was driving home from church with his woman on Sunday when they saw commodity that made him hit the thickets.
“ We were on a country road on the way back to our house … and I looked over while I was driving, and I saw a canine’s head pop up,” Shapp, a occupant of Princeton, Texas, told The Dodo. “ Being out in the country, it’s common to see ranch pets out running on the road. But I noticed that he was n’t moving, and he was in a bag. And that does n’t make sense.

Shapp and his woman Mandi, who are both big canine suckers, did n’t waste a nanosecond. They hopped out of the auto and went over to the canine.
“ He was tied up in a feed sack,” Shapp said. “ You could tell that it was done designedly. There was rope tied around the bottom, so he did n’t move.”
The first thing the couple did was get the canine out of the sack. “ We did n’t have a cutter or anything to cut him out of the bag, so we had to use our auto key,” Shapp said.
Also they wrapped him up in a fleece and brought him into their auto.
The canine, who’s now named Bubba, sounded thankful to be saved, but he was also alarmed. “ He was surely spooked, and he shook and fiddled, presumably for the first four or five hours that we had him,” Shapp said.
While Shapp does n’t have any idea how long Bubba was in the feed sack, he has a feeling it was for about 24 hours.
“ He smelled enough bad,” Shapp said. “ He’d urine and stuff each over him.”
The Shapps drove Bubba back to their house. They fed him, made him a comfortable bed and bathed him.
It was during Bubba’s bath that he eventually started to relax. “ I felt like that was a big trust thing,” Shapp said. “ I suppose he knows that we saved him.”
They took him to the vet the coming day. While Bubba is generally healthy, they were shocked to discover that Bubba had a projectile crack on the inside of his upper leg.
“ I do n’t know how I missed it, because it’s veritably large,” Shapp said. “ There was no blood in the bag, but I suppose notoriety surely shot him, hoping to kill him, and that did n’t work, so they just put him in the bag and tossed him.”
Dallas DogRRR, a original canine deliverance group, will be helping Bubba find his ever home. But the Shapps are in no rush to let go of him — they will foster him until he’s feeling better.
Bubba is getting along famously with the Shapps’two other pets, Isabella and Dixie. “ Bubba is one of the family members,” Shapp said. “ They get along enough well.”
But it’s maybe Shapp whom Bubba has formed the strongest bond with. Every day, Shapp brings Bubba to work with him, and Bubba follows Shapp everyplace. “ Wherever I am, he goes, wobbling around on his little legs,” Shapp said.

Shapp is amazed by Bubba’s adaptability, and he does n’t suppose he ’ll have any problem chancing the perfect home when the time comes.
“ He’s a enough stalwart little joe for having to go through everything that he went through. and it’s enough amazing to me for him to put all of his trust into someone differently after all of the stuff that he’s been through,” Shapp said.
