Man…. why do people have to suck? There are many more humane ways to get rid of a dog you do not want. Such as like making an ad online that takes about 23 seconds.
According to Mirror:
Heartbreaking CCTV shows a dog being dumped at the side of the road and then chasing the car in distress as its apparent owner drives off.
The distressed Staffordshire bull terrier, now called Snoop, tried to get back inside the vehicle as it was abandoned in Stoke-on-Trent just days before Christmas.
Footage released by the RSPCA shows a car pulling up at the side of the road and man carrying a dog bed and leading the white and black Staffie.
He leaves the bed on the pavement and unclips the dog’s lead before running back to the car, with Snoop running after him and jumping up at the vehicle’s window before it drives off, StokeonTrent Live reports.
The heartbreaking video was recorded at around 5pm on December 17 at the corner of Timor Grove and Pacific Road in Trentham, Stoke.
The RSPCA has launched an investigation and has appealed for information from the public.
The man will most likely be recognized with the virality of this article and video.
In the video, a man exits the passenger side, tosses a dog bed on the pavement and releases the dog.
The distressed Staffie jumps up at the window and chases the car.
A passer-by found the dog sitting in the bed around an hour later before the RSPCA was alerted.
RSPCA inspector Natalie Perehovsky is now appealing to the public for any information about the men responsible for dumping the dog.
She said: “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 it just heartbreaking.”
I can’t understand how someone could do this.
“The vets scanned his microchip and we have traced two previous owners in the Birmingham area, but do not believe either are the current owners, and therefore not those responsible for abandoning the dog.
“One man can be seen clearly in the footage dumping the dog, and there is a second person in the driver seat of the car.
I am very keen to hear from anyone who recognizes the vehicle, the man or the dog.
“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.”
She added: “He’s currently being cared for at a private boarding kennels where he will get all the care he needs whilst I investigate further.
“Anyone who recognises the vehicle, the dog or the men in the footage can contact me in complete confidence.
“It’s 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 vets straight away.”
If you cannot care for a dog then do not be a coward. Take responsibility and properly pass the dogs life onto someone in by taking proper steps.
Only 1 out of every 10 dogs born will find a permanent home.
The main reasons animals are in shelters: owners give them up, or animal control finds them on the street.
Homeless animals outnumber homeless people 5 to 1.
Each year, approximately 2.7 million dogs and cats are killed every year because shelters are too full and there aren’t enough adoptive homes.

Approximately 7.6 million companion animals enter animal shelters nationwide every year. Of those, approximately 3.9 million are dogs and 3.4 million are cats.
According to the National Council on Pet Population Study and Policy (NCPPSP), less than 2% of cats and only 15 to 20% of dogs are returned to their owners.
25% of dogs that enter local shelters are purebred.
About twice as many animals enter shelters as strays compared to the number that are relinquished by their owners.
It’s impossible to determine how many stray dogs and cats live in the United States. Estimates for cats alone range up to 70 million.
Only 10% of the animals received by shelters have been spayed or neutered.
Overpopulation, due to owners letting their pets accidentally or intentionally reproduce, sees millions of these “excess” animals killed annually.
Many strays are lost pets that were not kept properly indoors or provided with identification.
