“The neighbor opened the door to show me that the other dog was inside, and she said that the owner didn’t want the dog that was outside anymore and they were just going to leave it out there,”
Theresa Sumpter, founder of ther rescue said. “So I went ahead and said, ‘Yes, we’ll take the dog. She’s obviously injured and she’s cold and she can’t be out in this weather.’”
Perhaps she was relieved to finally be safe and warm. They then took her to the veterinarian to get her swelling and frostbitten paws treated.
The dog went to live with a foster who already had two other rescue dogs the next day. She gets along well with her new canine pals and loves every human she meets. Despite everything she has gone through, she is incredibly nice and gentle.
Unfortunately, this family did the wrong thing by leaving their unwanted dog outside in the freezing snow. If you ever witness anything like this, contact authorities or a rescue immediately.
Shelters are always willing to accept unwanted animals.
