A female bicyclist was on the road in Itabira, Brazil, when she filmed a dog being dumped into a grassy roadside with the intention to help her remember the location where the canine was left, so she could return later with a car to take him home. In the video below, you can see the heartbreaking moment the pup is dumped off on the side of the road.
In the footage, the poor dog made attempts to jump back into the truck of his owner who had just abandoned him, the dog even chased the vehicle, before giving up and sadly watched as it took off, leaving him all by himself. The dog was then running in circles not sure what to do next.
While the bicyclist who filmed the video returned, she had difficulty locating the pup, despite arriving at the area over the course of several days. She then decided to post the video online, where it quickly went viral and caught the attention of a man who decided to go out of his way to make sure that he found the dog and gave him a loving home.
This man lived near the location where the canine had been dumped, so he was determined to keep his eyes wide open for any signs of the dog. After two days searching, the poor puppy was spotted and taken to his new home!
The narration in the following video is, “So people, this here is the dog we rescued that is causing a lot of controversies here in Itabira. Moved by the story, we decided to go after him. Now he’s being taken care of. He is in our home, has food and everything he needs.”
