A film that shows a dog being viciously dumped on a rural roadside has gone viral on social media. The shocking incident took place last week near the town of Itabira, Brazil.
A woman was riding her bike, saw the awful scene and captured a video of what happened. A truck driver dumped a dog out of the vehicle and accelerated right away so the dog wouldn’t be able to catch them.
The video shows the heartbreaking moment.
The woman on the bike, later returned to the same spot in a car to take the dog to safety, but when she arrived the dog was already missing.
Police were notified of the incident, and the footage was posted on social media and in no time it went viral. Once the video was posted, thousands of people had viewed it and were annoyed by the heartbreaking incident. Only one man decided to take action and help!
One man, out of the thousands of viewers, wanted to stay unknown, went to search for the poor dog. The search lasted for about two days, but thankfully the dog was found.
“So people, this here is the dog we rescued who created so much controversy here in Itabira. Moved by the story, we decided to go after him. Now he’s being taken care of at home, with food and everything he needs.”
Although the story started very sad, it ended with a happy ending. Good people still exist and they show up and lend a helping hand when needed. Unfortunately, not all of the abandoned or dumped dogs have the same happy ending.
