The temperatures dropped to -35 degrees (thirty-five degrees below zero) in Prince George, British Columbia.
That sentence alone may not be terribly unusual for this time of year, but what if I told you that that same day someone left a 3-month-old Yorkie-Poo puppy outside in a cardboard box.
That changes things a little bit – right?
Lucky for the tiny dog, a woman found her before it was too late. The woman named her Star.
Star had not only been left outside to die, but she had also been the victim of terrible abuse.
The rubber band that was wrapped around her muzzle had caused her lips to start to rot.
Keep in mind that the puppy is just three months old.
