Tina Parker, who spotted the pup while driving by the train, has adopted him
A black Lab puppy is lucky to be alive after being rescued from the top of a train car after a journey that had a mysterious beginning.

No one knows how the puppy, who appears to be about 3 months old, ended up on top of the Norfolk Southern train that left Pennsylvania, and had already gone through Virginia and North Carolina on its way to Atlanta. Tina Parker, of Pickens, said she and her family were driving home Sunday night when they stopped at a red light by the Walmart store in Easley, S.C., as the train passed by.

Parker said she spotted what she at first thought was trash on top of the train. But she said the “trash” started moving and she realized it was a puppy. Parker called 911 and then followed the train on to Liberty.
