The poor little pup had her legs and nose tied up to stop her escaping or barking, and was left to die in a plastic bag.

A pit bull has won the hearts of people all over the world after she rescued a puppy that had been tied up and left for dead at a rubbish dump.

The moving tale occurred in the city of Almeria, in the southeast Spanish region of Andalusia.

Her saviour was Meca, a rescue dog that lives in an animal shelter, who was having her photo taken by shelter officials at the time in the hope of finding her a home. But Meca's sensitive snout caught a scent she couldn't ignore.

Her carers at the shelter described how Meca began to pull on her lead and tugged them to the site of a nearby rubbish dump, where not even the awful smells could deter her.

She made a bee-line for what seemed to be a bundle of plastic – which turned out to be a live puppy.

The abandoned dog, who has been named Campa, was taken in by the shelter workers.

"We don’t even want to imagine what would have happened if Meca had not found her," a spokesperson for the animal shelter said. "She was very hungry and thirsty, but she is okay."

The best part? Since the story has been shared, plenty of dog lovers have volunteered to adopt both Campa and her saviour.
