Blake posted the video and wrote:
Person dumping dog in our neighborhood this morning 10 July at 10:13. Please share. I had no idea this video would spread so fast and so far. Here is more information all in one place. This is at Farm Road 148 and Farm Road 205. Three miles east of Springfield, MO just off of Hwy D. The Greene County Sheriff’s Office was notified.
What happened to the abandoned dog?
According to Blake, the authorities were notified and a deputy was able to locate the dog, who was suffering in the heat. Blake wrote, “Deputy Turner was able to locate the dog. At this point the poor dog was getting dehydrated and weak. The Deputy was extremely concerned and caring and provided the dog with water and comfort. The temperature reached 96 degrees today.”
The dog, a female Labrador retriever mix, has been turned over to Rescue One for care – she is currently recuperating from burned paws and dehydration.
