The woman initially assumed that their owners would be somewhere close as she drove by. But it soon dawned on her that they may have been abandoned earlier in the night.
While out on a deserted road, a woman came across a troubling sight: Dogs chained outside to a pole in the scorching heat. The dogs, who were on merely 2-feet long leashes, seemed extremely upset and distressed. The woman initially assumed that their owners would be somewhere close as she drove by. But it soon dawned on her that they may have been abandoned earlier in the night.
This thought kept her up throughout the night and so she returned to the scene the following day only to find the helpless animals still chained in the sun. The weather conditions and the area in which they were found suggested that they had been hungry and dehydrated since the day they were abandoned. According to the woman, they appeared to be on the verge of death.
"I saw abandoned dogs for days with no food, water or shelter, dying in 100 + degrees. They were tied up on two-foot chains, not able to move. I waited to see if someone would help them and I couldn’t sleep at night, so I saved them," she shared.
Without wasting a second, the woman immediately placed the dog in the back of her car and began sobbing uncontrollably at the unfairness faced by the homeless pups. She filmed one of the dogs as she drove them away from the pole where there had been left to die.
The adorable pooch can be seen watching the woman who comforts him while driving the vehicle. But as his angel rescuer breaks down into tears, the dog does something that leaves the woman at a loss for words. The pup tries to express his gratitude for saving him by embracing her. Despite being in a precarious situation himself, the pooch reaches out to comfort the woman, according to I Heart Dogs.
He even lays his head beside hers in the hopes of making her feel better. Seeing this the woman vows to help give them a better life from then onwards. "Minutes after, one of the dogs reached for my hand multiple times wanting affection. It broke my heart that he’d been neglected and was dying and wasn’t mad at me but grateful. I started to cry and again, his focus shifted from himself to now my needs. I couldn’t believe so much love came from an animal that literally just came from a situation like he was in," she shared.
Thankfully, the woman's intervention helped save the pups from a horrible fate but unfortunately, there are many such pups who aren't so lucky.
