A 3-year-old dog was found inside a backpack, discarded along the side of a rural road in Canyon County on Wednesday.

The West Valley Humane Society says the pooch was found freezing cold and in poor shape after being left outside for a prolonged period.

"Thankfully a good citizen found her, took her in and alerted animal control to the situation," West Valley said in a release.

Staff members have named the dog Zoe and workers are hoping the dog's condition will improve in the next 48-72 hours, but the dog's status is "very guarded" at this time.

Anyone with information about the dog, or its owner is asked to call 208-454-7531.
