Dog Has No Idea Why His Owner Is Leaving Him In The Middle Of Nowhere.
Animals need our love and attention just like other humans. It’s all on a different level, but it’s just as important, and… what have you done for your pet lately?
Around Christmastime in the UK, a Staffordshire bull terrier nicknamed Snoop was abandoned by his owners, and a closed-circuit camera caught that abandonment on film. And watching that film footage was a painful thing.
PLEASE RT! We have CCTV footage of a man callously dumping a dog in Stoke-on-Trent. The distressed dog chases after the car as it drives away. Please help @RSPCA_official find the man responsible. Awful that someone can do this! The dog is thankfully ok and now safe pic.twitter.com/AW8HNvVwdQ— Rachel Butler 🐾🐶🐦 RSPCA Press Team (@RachRSPCA) December 24, 2018
Says animal welfare officer Natalie Perehovsky: “The footage has to be seen to be believed, it’s just awful. To see the poor dog in such obvious distress jumping up at the car as it drives away is just heartbreaking. I can’t understand how someone could do this.”
Snoop’s former owner threw out his bed for him, and that’s where he was later found by a passerby.
Adds Natalie: “The veterinary staff have nicknamed the dog Snoop, and he is in good condition, thought to be two years old. He is a white Staffie with black marking and is such a friendly, lovely boy. He’s currently being cared for at a private boarding kennel where he will get all the care he needs whilst I investigate further. It beggars belief that someone could abandon a dog like this at Christmas, but we are so thankful to the kind people who found Snoop sitting sadly in his bed, for taking him to the safety of a vet straight away.”
The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals has launched an investigation into the abandonment.
