Puppy found stuffed inside backpack, left in bed of random truck

A Florida man was shocked to find a backpack containing a live puppy left in the back of his flatbed truck.

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.
