Audra Petraškienė was driving near a river in her hometown of Lithuania last week when she was disrupted by an unusual sight. Audra noticed a soaking wet dog shivering by the side of the road.
The kind woman decided to stop her car to check if the puppy was okay.Upon taking a closer look she noticed a large metal anchor tied around the little puppy’s neck. “Who did this to you?” Audra asked in shock when she got to the dog.
“Apparently, somebody put a heavy metal item on his neck and dropped him in the river to drown,” Petraškienė’s daughter, Andra, told The Dodo.
Luckily, the dog had managed to escape from its horrifying fate and was able to make it on to safe land.
“I was shocked. Just thinking about it makes me want to cry. I realized I have to do something immediately,” Audra said.
The kind woman took the poor dog home, cleaned him up and rushed him to a vet. Fortunately, the vet said the little dog had not sustained any serious injuries and was to be in good health.
Audra decided to report the incident to the police and is waiting on the cruel person who would do such a heartless thing to be apprehended.
She also posted about the dog on Facebook hoping to find out more about what could’ve have happened to the poor and innocent dog.
Her Facebook post went viral, and soon the owner of the dog showed up to claim it. “The owner seemed like a good person. I am sure that he loves the dog” Audra said.
However, Audra decided to leave the dog at an animal shelter until the situation is resolved as it is still unclear who could have done this to the pup.
We hope this poor dog will soon find a loving home and will never have to experience anything like this again.
