A dog was found abandoned inside a port-a-potty at a Brookline, Massachusetts, construction site Thursday night, animal rescue officials said.

The corgi mix was taped into a box but had managed to get her head and two front legs free. After she was found, she was taken to the MSPCA Angell Animal Medical Center in Boston, where staff found she was "unharmed and stable, but frightened," MSPCA officials said in a statement.
