Staff at Stray Rescue received a phone call this week that really broke their hearts.
A man who was moving into his new home ended up opening his basement door and finding something he could never imagine.
“I just bought a house and there is a pit bull chained up in the basement,” he said. “I’m not sure how long it’s been down there.”
The rescue team went to the home and were informed that a squatted had previously stayed in the house and left behind lots of garbage along with this poor little dog.
Thank god the dog was found in time.
“When we opened the door to the basement and shined our flashlight down, we saw a wagging tail,” Natalie Thomson, the group’s communications director, told The Dodo. “She was nearly choking herself as she was so excited to see us. When we freed her, she couldn’t stop jumping up and down and giving hugs.”
People are not sure who left the dog behind or how long he was there. Judging from his condition he would not have lasted much longer in the cold damp basement.
There was no food or water left for him either. She was not micro-chipped or sprayed either.
When she was found she was over the moon with excitement.
You can watch the video of her below when she was first found.
“Her personality is completely adorable,” Thomson said. “She loves everyone she meets and craves attention. She makes sure she is not ignored! She’s an energetic and very affectionate pup! She is so happy all the time.”
She has a huge love for life and was very lucky she was found in time.
People should never treat dogs like this!
Thank goodness she is now living with a new family and they absolutely love her.
