Animal lovers were heartbroken when they watched video footage of someone who dumped a dog out of their car in Tampa, Florida. The dog, a male pit bull, was discarded by someone driving a Chevrolet Cavalier in a South Seminole Heights neighborhood in August. Though the good Samaritan who caught the sad situation on video tried to capture the abandoned dog, they were unsuccessful…the dog tried to chase after the person who had thrown him aside and then he disappeared.
Finally, after weeks of searching, there is resolution. The dog has been found and the owner has been arrested. On November 12, the Search for Sassy Facebook page updated followers:
A very happy update on the dog dumped in Tampa. The car has been found, the owner has been found, the dog has been found and is safe with the Hillsborough County’s Pet Resource Center.
The dog, since dubbed Tiger, is now available for adoption and his former owner has been permanently banned from owning and possessing animals in Hillsborough County.
Tiger needs one more thing for this to be a true happily-ever-after…a home. Anyone interested in giving Tiger a home is asked to contact the Hillsborough County Pet Resource Center at 813-744-5660.
