Gary McClean, a track inspector for CSX Railroad, found the shivering puppy with his paws frozen to some train tracks in his home state of Alabama. The temperature outside was about 14 d
McClean was checking for any obstacles ahead of a train expected along the tracks in an hour. Apparently the puppy had become wet in a nearby ditch and his wet paws froze to the tracks in the extreme cold. McClean used a knife to cut the pup’s fur and free him before the train came.
McClean already had three dogs and couldn’t adopt another. So his wife put the pup’s picture and story up on her Facebook page. As the story made its way across the Internet, the calls started to pour in.
The puppy, which looks to be a German shepherd mix, now has a new home and a new name — Track.
