At the Boksburg SPCA in South Africa, the heartless owner of an old dog casually walked in on Tuesday and told the staff he no longer wanted his dog. The man placed down an old bucket and curled up inside of it was a pitiful, skeletal pup who could undoubtedly make anyone cry.
“There, soaked in car oil, lay a brown, skeletal figure of what looked like a dog,” the rescue organization posted on their social media page. “The owner claimed the animal had been sick of a long time. The little cross Dachshund lifted his head and looked up around him. His owner walked out after being told off by SPCA staff. When we pulled him out of the bucket and saw he could still walk, we knew there may be hope.”
The little dog has been rushed to the rescue’s partner veterinarian for a complete physical examination. There will be updates soon.
Sometimes there are just no words for the cruelty imposed upon innocent animals.
