An emaciated dog is expected to recover after two women rescued and saved his life.
The nonprofit Animal Haven says two women brought the 4-year-old dog in a grocery cart after finding him under the Manhattan Bridge on the Manhattan side. They say the women just started walking searching for help and came upon the Centre Street office. 
The Brooklyn Veterinary Hospital is now taking care of Timmie, who they describe as curious and energetic--a far cry from his state last Thursday.
“Probably, I mean days would be optimistic. He was extremely critical,” said Dr. Amy Brida at VERG Brooklyn. 
Once Timmie is healthy again, he will be up for adoption. His rescuers are asking anyone with information to contact the NYPD.
