PRINCE ALBERT, Sask. - For the second time in about two months, a puppy left to die in frigid weather in Prince Albert, Sask., has been rescued by a passerby.

The latest incident involves a four-week old St. Bernard-cross that was found by a woman, who came across something odd in a dumpster outside a gas station.

Debbie Foley-Brass says she was tossing trash from her car into the bin two weeks ago when she heard a rustling sound and spotted a bag moving around.

Foley-Brass says she broke into tears when she tore it open and discovered the pup inside.

She had the little creature checked by a veterinarian before turning it over to a friend, who says the dog is doing fine.

In January, a pup rescued by three members of the Western Hockey League's Prince Albert Raiders from an abandoned truck was later adopted by a family in British Columbia. (CKBI)
