Ladies and Gentlemen, meet the 21st-century-equivalent of leaving a baby in a basket on the orphanage doorstep - leaving a sweet puppydog in the basement of a freshly sold house.
Stray Rescue of St. Louis got a phone call from the new owner of a home in the area with the startling discovery that a relatively healthy pitbull had been abandoned and chained up in the unlit basement.
The call went out, "I just bought a house and there's a pit bull in the basement... I don't know how long she's been here."
Volunteers rushed to the house to rescue the enthusiastic wigglepooch, who had no food or water and apparently been bailed on by a squatter who figured (or at least hoped?) the new owner was going to find her.
Pupples was so excited to see her rescuers that she was just about choking herself on the chain - and once she was off the chain and on a leash, she didn't lose a drop of energy.
Check out the video of the pooch's rescue here, if you think you're emotionally resilient enough to handle it.
The volunteers love her unstoppable perkiness and named her Jumping Bean, and she is adorable for life.
Recovery is amazing no matter where you find it. But the internet dialed in mostly on wanting to see the person responsible for Jumping Bean's abandonment thoroughly punished for it...
As you can imagine, the love for Jumping Bean was matched only by the fury people felt against the lockup.
She bounced back from the abandonment and is everybody's best friend now, cuddling up and craving attention.
Jump on, Jumping Bean.
