An 18-month-old dog that sought refuge in a park trash can in Birmingham, England, after he was abandoned out in the elements is enjoying life again now that he has a warm kennel, and a bowl of food every day.

Birmingham Dogs Home rescued the critter from the temporary home he had made for himself in the public bin, sharing his photo on February 23, writing, “This poor boy must have been freezing and got himself in the bin for refuge to keep warm.”

Birmingham Dogs Home also updated followers with a video on February 27, showing the dog enjoying a play in the snow, calling him a “little soldier.” Credit: Birmingham Dogs Home via Storyful
