Admittedly, the first part of this video is hard to watch, but the ending is completely worth the initial heartache. A tiny puppy, only weeks old is seen in a dirt lot, surrounded by trash and debris. She has no shelter to speak of and certainly not a comfortable bed to snuggle in. The scorching sun is hot and the little black and white pup can not escape it. We can only assume the as the nights get chilly, dark, and lonely, it is much the same.
Inexplicably, she is tied down to huge, heavy cinder blocks with a chain that weighs more than she does. She can barely hold up her head and is in pain from mange and internal parasites. Only a monster could force any animal, let alone a puppy to live in such deplorable conditions.
But, this puppy, now named Andie, got a very happy ending thanks to a rescue by PETA. Andie now has her own loving, “furever” family. She is a much-loved pet with an indoor home. At night, she snuggles in her very own bed surrounded by her many new toys. During the day, she plays with her humans and her kitty siblings, enjoying the life she has now, free from pain and loneliness.
As an animal lover, it’s hard to imagine what kind of person could do this to a puppy. Yet, there are people out there that commit these kinds of crimes all of the time. It’s up to the rest of us to encourage adoption and spay and neuter to reduce unwanted litters. Education and awareness of animal welfare are also important. Finally, consider supporting an animal rescue or organization of your choice to help dogs like Andie get their own happy story.
