There are many who say that animals are better than humans. Sometimes we have to agree that this is true. When we hear about an “abandoned dog”, we think of a dog that is taken from the street and given a home. But the story we are going to tell today shows a different reality.
To imagine someone abandoning the same animal twice sounds disgusting, cruel and extremely sad. Unfortunately, this is something that is actually happening. Just listen to the following story.
It was a day like any other when a couple arrived at an animal shelter to adopt a puppy. Everything was as usual and the volunteers kindly helped them and showed what animals they had.
The couple walked around and watched the animals while petting those who seemed cutest. Everything indicated that they had arrived at the perfect place to find what they were looking for. But something would soon happen that shocked everyone present.
One of the dogs walked towards the couple as if he had known them all his life. He began to growl, howl and run around in circles, mad with happiness. He seemed to have found a lost treasure! And it was not far from the truth.
When they saw the dog’s reaction, the volunteers recommended that the couple take the dog. They seemed to have a special bond. The couple refused, however, which the volunteers could not understand.
The couple felt pressured and finally told the truth. The dog had been theirs, but they abandoned it when he grew old and sick. Despite the animal recovering, the couple did not want to take responsibility, and demanded to be allowed to adopt another dog.
The orphanage of course denied them this, and also made sure that the couple could not adopt another dog in the surrounding areas. They even reported them.
All this happened some time after the workers at the animal shelter investigated the dog’s situation. When they found him, he was on the verge of death due to dehydration and starvation.
Today he is a happy and healthy dog that can be adopted by anyone who is willing to love him. It’s hard to understand how the couple could be so heartless that they abandoned him again after seeing his happiness when they arrived. If you’ve ever wondered if a dog can be abandoned twice, the answer is yes.
We do not know what this abandoned dog felt when the owners abandoned him again. However, we are sure that he is well taken care of and that he will find a home that loves and treats him as he deserves.
They say that what you do comes back to you, and that’s really true with this couple. Of all the animal shelters they could have chosen, they came to one where their abandoned pets were. And after telling about their cruelty, they seriously thought they would be allowed to adopt a new dog!
If you want to do your part to help an abandoned dog, do not turn your back on the abuse you see. If you see an abandoned dog, contact an animal shelter so they can pick it up and help it.
Before you adopt, you should also think long and carefully about the responsibilities that come with it.
