Black lab puppy, rescued from freight train, finds a new home

A self-confessed dog fanatic in South Carolina was driving home on Sunday evening.  As a freight train passed, she spotted a frightened little puppy on the top of a large  freight car that was traveling at 50 mph.

Tina Parker called 911 to have the train stopped and firefighters rescued the puppy.  Tina has adopted her, saying it was ‘fate.’  The three-month old puppy has been named Boxcar Hunter, Boxy for short.  Boxy joins a household of two other dogs.
