The woman whose son found a dog in a dumpster on Christmas Day has decided to keep the little guy.

Marcella Bridges told KOB that her son and his girlfriend were on their way to a movie Tuesday when they heard a noise coming from a nearby dumpster.

They looked in and found a little dog in a box, shivering in the cold.

They wrapped the dog in a towel and took him inside to Bridges.

Bridges had told KOB that she wouldn't be able to keep the dog, because her landlord only allows cats. She released her email to us and invited people who wanted to adopt the dog to contact her.

But on Wednesday, Bridges called KOB and said her landlord was going to allow her to keep the dog.

It's a happy ending for Bridges and her new dumpster doggie.
