Puppy Rescued Just Inches from its Life on Moving Belt

A puppy rescued from a recycling center shocked workers at the San Francisco plant, Recology…

ABC News reports Dec. 24, Christmas Eve, that a three-month old apricot poodle mix puppy, Gem dubbed the Miracle Puppy, was within inches of her life when a plant worker noticed her on the conveyor belt moving heavy landfill materials on Friday. He hit the emergency brake and the pup was saved.

A puppy was rescued from a recycling center that specialized in heavy debris.

Recology Recycling Center

The young dog is named Gem and has numerous offers to adopt her. To say she has a second chance at life is an understatement! Recology is a recycling plant for especially heavy debris, such as concrete, metal and lumber. It amazed workers just how that this puppy rescued from the recycling center even made it that far in the process. There are about 400 tons of construction material filtered through the plant on any given day. The fact that Gem made it to the conveyor belt alive is a miracle on its own. It is believed that the puppy was put in a garbage bag and thrown into a dumpster reserved for construction material, the report said. When a garbage truck loaded everything up, it was dumped into the landfill. In the whole process, Gem had made it through a shaker screen that removes excess dirt before falling down a 20-foot shoot that put her in the landfill. Talk about one harrowing ride for anything, let alone an innocent puppy.

While riding along the conveyor belt, Gem went through the shaker screen which removes excess dirt and was on her way to a 20-foot fall down a shoot to end up in a landfill. Trash sorter, Greggory Foster, noticed something moving as Gem was making her way down the conveyor belt.

“I was on the line working on the conveyor belt and there was a black trash bag coming down the line,” Foster said. “It had a hole in it and I could see it moving.”

He hit the emergency break and that is when the puppy was rescued from the recycling center.

“My coworker and I climbed up on the line,” he said. “We pulled her out the bag and she was wet, bleeding, frightened and shaking.”

The San Francisco Department of Animal Care and Control was called in after Foster and a co-worker helped make Gem comfortable.

"Gem suffered bite wounds on her body, conjunctivitis in her eye and lameness in her legs," the report said. She is expected to make a full recovery. She was named Gem because she is a "diamond in the rough."

SFACC said they have over 70 requests to adopt the puppy rescued from the recycling center. They are also asking the public for any information regarding Gem. They would like to speak with her previous owners only to ask a few questions in assuring she gets the best home possible.
