The Calgary Humane Society is looking for help from the public to identify the owner of an abandoned dog found in a dumpster.

The mixed-breed puppy was found in a garbage container near Anderson Road and 24th Street S.W. at approximately 6 a.m. on Tuesday.

The animal was found alive but in “severe medical distress” and may have been in the dumpster for a long as 48 hours, the humane society said.

Peace officers are asking anyone with information about suspicious activity in the area between Oct. 8 and 10, or information about the identity of the dog, the owner or discarding party, to contact the Calgary Humane Society.

It’s believed the dog was possibly a Labrador/Australian Cattle cross. The puppy was white in colour with faint grey spots.
