    A puppy is on the mend and waiting for a new home after an unusual rescue.

    It started when Jerry Murray got home from work and noticed a backpack in the bed of his pickup truck, NBC affiliate WFLA reported

    Inside the bag was a live puppy, surrounded by shredded newspaper.

    "He's in there, he's panting, and I see him and I'm like 'what am I going to do?'" Murray said.

    Being a dog owner himself, Murray immediately gave the canine lots of compassion.

    "I gave him some water, gave him some food and let him relax a little bit, 'cause I'm sure he was traumatized from the ride," he said.
