A puppy is safe and sound in Littleton, thanks to the town’s police department.

An officer responded when someone saw the eight-week-old pit bull abandoned on the side of a road. 

He picked the puppy up and brought the dog to Littleton’s animal control officer. 

They said the puppy is in good health, and now the tiny pit bull will be headed to a local shelter to go up for adoption.
