He was dumped near the river with no food or water for an unknown amount of time, just left to die. Luckily, he was found and rescued. There were scratch marks on the entrance from where he desperately tried to escape. His body is covered in scars and wounds. He is emaciated. He has suffered physically and emotionally, likely far longer than just his time in that box.”

According to PEOPLE, Diego found a loving foster home to start recovering both physically and emotionally from the trauma he endured.

The rescue shared on Facebook that the pup “put on 20 pounds from when he was found until he was adopted by his amazing rescuer.”

In the end, Feleciana Ramirez, the rescuer that freed Diego from the box and saved his life, welcomed Diego into her home and life for good.
