BROOKLYN - A puppy that was found in the trash nearly three weeks ago has been reunited with the sanitation worker who saved her.

Victoria Roman was doing her rounds in Queens on April 5 when she found the abandoned pup out on the sidewalk. The dog, now named Victoria too, was brought to the Brooklyn Animal Rescue Coalition in Williamsburg where she is being nursed back to health.

Roman visited Victoria at the shelter this week. Workers there say she's not ready for adoption just yet, but will soon be needing a loving home.
