A dog in Houston, Texas, clung to the one thing that reminded her of the family who left her behind – a teal chair dumped on a sidewalk. The dog, a young pit bull mix, was rescued thanks to compassionate people who couldn’t bear to see her abandoned and alone.
The rescue effort was recorded and posted to Facebook on Friday – an explanation accompanied the heartbreaking video which shows the dog’s loyalty to the family who decided that she wasn’t worth taking with them:
This is some of the footage of the rescue that just took place. This dog was dumped by her owners at the dumpster along with their chair and other belongings and she has been waiting here day and night for them to return!

Anyway this very amazing lady named Diahann Vega Ochoa reached out to me and we were able to get the dog safely into my car. I am hoping to take her to Westbury animal hospital and at least board her for a couple of days so I can Network.
The dog has been taken to a veterinarian for an exam and vaccinations and is being boarded until arrangements can be made. You can view the Facebook thread for this rescue effort here.
