Crew members said they spotted the abnormally thin, weak dog on Sunnyside Drive and called the Lake County Office of Animal Services for help, WFTV-TV reported.

The dog was taken to the Lake County Animal Shelter, where she weighed in at 22 pounds.

Pit Sisters, a Jacksonville-based rescue agency, ensured that the dog received emergency care.

"I know we have a great group of employees, but this week, I found out we have a couple of heroes," Lori Koontz, the division's manager, said in a statement.

The dog, who has been nicknamed "Glory," is eating, drinking and slowly regaining strength.
