A 10-month-old puppy was found by recycling center workers in San Francisco inside a trash bag.
"We could tell the puppy was still moving and it was trying to crawl out of the bag itself," said Gregory Foster an employee. "Luckily we stopped the line in time before it actually fell off the belt into the pit."
The puppy was a mix breed poodle and is suffering from animal bites around her neck, and is now being treated by the San Francisco Animal Care and Control. They named the puppy "Gem."
