    I simply don’t understand people. If you cannot take care of your pet anymore, bring it to a shelter. At least that way it has a slight chance of finding another forever home. Don’t let it fend for itself! Cruel bastards.

    • Joe

      To give your dog the best chance put an adoption ad on Craigslist...better than a shelter..

      @Nikki Nicole, Killing or getting rid of is an Evil choice- that’s not the choice of those: who can’t express their will “not to die”... Humans are the destiny deciders in case of animals- just think from the reverse angle if animals have to decide a man’s fate. “Animals will not decide to kill a human, left at their mercy.”

      Al ot of shelter kill them after a few day. The ones that don't are usually so full they can't take anymore pets. It would be a hard choice if I ever had to make it. I pray I don't.

    In 2015 a dog was abandoned outside a train station in Scotland, U.K along with a suitcase that contained its food bowl, a toy & a pillow! It was later adopted.

    thank you for what you're doing but please, to all people, if you're rescuing a dog, stop reassuring them by touching their heads, especially on stressed dogs, except exceptions (dogs who "learn" to like it) it really incomfort them, prefer chest or shoulder, avoid touching them on the back if they don't see you arrived, and of course, first contac by letting your hand smelled Sorry for my english love

    What horrible inhuman creeps to do this. I hope they get something terrible costly for their rotten behavior. It would be a pleasure to see a huge net thrown over them. I would volunteer to do it.

    And 3 minutes in, no more face diapers. Gee, I thought you were going to die of COVID. NO? I guess you all realize that the face diapers are mental enslavement and following the crowd/doing whatever your TV talking head tells you to do, and not actually because you think you'll prevent any kind of illness. Cheers.

    You all look ridiculous going into dangerous situations rescuing dogs wearing face diapers for a cold that doesn't cause any symptoms that the President was cured from in less than 48 hours.

      @Samantha Key He doesn't lie. You wouldn't be able to name any lie at all. Plus, the election is not called. The electors have not cast their votes, no state is certified. Your media does you a disservice, because it's been manipulating you for 4 years.

    Drop the slave muzzle, covid is nothing more or less but the common cold/flu. Its all lies and fear mongering to expand state power.

    • Samantha Key
      Samantha Key

      Don't be an idiot. Covid is real and it's more severe then a flu. If you have any issues just look at the people who actually had it and suffered a lot from it. All the lives lost that could have been prevented. Remember on ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

    I am not going to be overly critical apart from it would have been better to surrender the dog to a shelter, but she was left in a fairly safe and busy area to be found and not out in the middle of nowhere or trussed up so she couldn't find help.

    What a sweet, sweet darling. I agree with usernamesForDummies.............bring your dog to an adoption shelter. This little girl is so adorable and, who knows what happened to the owner. We have to have compassion for extraordinary circumstances for people and their pets. Life is so fragile for animals and people. But that doesn't discount the cruel and abusive people in this world.


    So beautiful❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤

    An elderly dog belonging to an elderly/ill owner. Owner dies. Relatives don't want to care for it. No one wants to take an old dog and pay for its medical bills. Think of a backup plan before you adopt a dog when you're near retirement age. People can change 180 when money is involved. The dog was pampered in it's former life. And probably slept in a bed with his owner.

    I have a rescue cat..he's stand offish and runs whenever my son our i get to close to him unless he's hungry. He's broken some sentimental things by pushing them off the counter or an end table..But there's no way i could throw him out the door..Animals don't understand things like humans do..!! I've watched a lot of these videos this is the first one to actually made me bawl...!!!

    I just cannot imagine why anyone would just drop this tiny girl off somewhere to fend for herself. She came right up to the girls, wanting love, whoever dropped her and her belongings off is so cold and unfeeling. My heart goes out to her. I pray she finds a loving home. Thank you, Eldad, and all of you. God bless you.

    Such a beauty. The nerve of the abuser. Dump her and with her belongings. So stupid. I am having difficultly liking many human beings. They are sick and stupid no heart. Special place in hell for them. Prayers for sweet one. I live with an abuser. His behavior fueled by alcohol. Have no respect for him.
