(VIDEO – POSTED ON FACE BOOK & TWITTER – IN CASE THE LINK DOESN’T WORK)
“I found this video on-line, but aside from the date I don’t know anything else. However, Google translated the page from Portuguese to English, so I suppose it could be in Portugal; or it could be that someone from Portugal just reposted it!
” On Sept. 29, on a dark night, one car is following another, when the car in front starts to break, the following car slows down too; however, the car following has a dash cam on board & captures the whole upsetting scene. The car in front slow’s to a stop, someone gets out with a dog…then precedes to drive off without the dog!!!”
“How utterly F-ing heartbreaking; not ashamed to say I cried. Firstly, if they didn’t want the dog, why not take the dog to a shelter etc.? Secondly, abandoning a dog on a road (actually looks like a small town, there are houses either side for a short distance) is utterly stupid…obviously the owner had no heart & no brain.
You would think the driver of the car with the dash cam, that caught the distressing scene, would do something, wouldn’t you? My instinct would have been to get the dog off the road & speed off to catch the car’s registration in front; then go to the police & show them the video…Sadly that’s not what happens?
See for yourself…the video doesn’t need a ‘viewer discretion’ warning…but you may need some tissues..hold & click link below, I will also post separately to face book & Twitter, just in case some can’t access the video via the link (sorry I couldn’t attach it either).
There are some real f-ing shits that live in this world, no compassion or conscience they care about nothing & know one, except themselves, their cars, their possessions etc.”
“I would rather live in a f-ing shed with my animals & have a heart bursting full of compassion, empathy & love for all sentient beings; than anything else in the world, thank you!
“Nothing justifies abandoning an animal to fend for itself; absolutely nothing & no excuses for doing so either!”
However, I am showing it in case anyone recognises the car or the dog. Has a neighbour, who’s dog that looks like the one on the video; i.e. a German Shepherd mix, vanished? Perhaps someone may note the place where it happened, if so, could be that the dog is in the towns animal shelter or that some kind soul offered it a home…I just want to know it’s ok!!
“Which ever is the case, I have been praying very hard that the dog is ok; it would be amazing if someone could tell us how & where the dog is!. The thought of it being hit by a car & laying in a ditch, or starving to death, is just too much to bear; so I’m trying to remain positive…I’m also praying that the car following actually caught up with the car who ditched the dog & got his licence plate for the police! “
