On July 6, an elderly dog outside Jasmil Kennels in Upchurch, Kent, in the UK. The black Labrador’s owner abandoned and tied him to the railings. Together with the pup was a heartbreaking note, explaining why the Owner Dumps Dog In The Street.
The letter revealed that the dog had been living with the owner for the last ten years. However, the fur parent ran out of patience with the pup. The owner said that the black Lab has not learned to be good. So, his owner decided to return the dog where he was found.
Track the owner down.
It was quite puzzling how an owner could desert his dog after looking after him for so long. To understand the situation better, the Swale Borough Council Stray Dog Service decided to track the owner down.
In a Facebook post, the shelter said that they would very much like to speak to the dog’s owner in the hopes of establishing why he abandoned the pup. The staff did not find any chip or other identification of the dog or his owner. So, the shelter staff asked those who might recognize the pup to please contact them in confidence or send them a private message through the page.
Found its owner.
After posting about the dog, the shelter soon found its owner. They updated the information, saying that they learned that the situation was not what it initially seemed after investigation. So, they have taken the appropriate action based on the circumstances.
The staff has also reached out to the dog owner’s extended family, who knows and loves the pup. They were unaware of the owner’s plans and asked to take care of the dog instead. That way, he can live the latter part of his life safely with the people he knows. If the pup reacts positively with family, the shelter will let him stay with them.
