Photo of the dog desperately trying to get back in the car.
We hope that this article helps this dog find a new home and the owner can be identified and reported to the authorities.
The following heartbreaking video was recently released by the RSPCA, CCTV, and shows the moments of a petrified. Staffordshire Bull Terrier being abandoned in the middle of the road by his owners just before Christmas. In the video you can see the dog chasing the car and jumping up at the doors as his soulless owner drives off leaving the animal in an extremely dangerous situation.
First, the black and white colored dog is taken out of the car by an unidentified man who is seen carrying the dogs bed to the side of the road. Next unaware of what’s going to happen, the dog follows his owner to the side of the road where the owners unleash him. Hoping that the dog is distracted his owner sprints towards the car with the dog chasing close behind. The doors are slammed shut in the dog’s face and then the soulless owner drives off as the dog runs after the moving car.
The Video that was captured on a CCTV and released by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals RSPCA.
Even, when the owners drove away the hopeful dog did not give up and ran after the car, circling the car desperately trying to get to his owner.
According to StokeonTrent Live the video was captured just around 5 pm on the 17th of December, 2018, on the curve of Pacific Road and Timor Grove in Trentham, Stoke.
After a couple of hours of being abandoned, a passerby found the traumatized dog sitting in its bed, luckily unharmed.
The RSPCA were immediately informed and have since launched an investigation into the situation. They have appealed to the public, asking for anyone with information about the Staffie’s owner to come forward.
Inspector Natalie Perehovsky from RSPCA said:
“The footage has to be seen to be believed, it’s just awful. To see the poor dog in such obvious distress jumping up at the car as it drives away is just heartbreaking.
I can’t understand how someone could do this.”
Inspector Natalie explained that the previous owners of Staffie, whose name was later changed as Snoop, had not been involved or responsible for his abandonment in this case
The RSPCA inspector also said:
“The vets scanned his microchip and we have traced two previous owners in the Birmingham area, but do not believe either are the current owners, and therefore not those responsible for abandoning the dog.
One man can be seen clearly in the footage dumping the dog, and there is a second person in the driver seat of the car. I am very keen to hear from anyone who recognises the vehicle, the man or the dog.
The veterinary staff have nicknamed the dog Snoop, and he is in good condition, thought to be two years old. He is a white Staffie with black marking, and is such a friendly, lovely boy.”
Inspector Natalie added:
“He’s currently being cared for at a private boarding kennels where he will get all the care he needs whilst I investigate further.
Anyone who recognizes the vehicle, the dog or the men in the footage can contact me in complete confidence.
It’s beggar’s belief that someone could abandon a dog like this at Christmas, but we are so thankful to the kind people who found Snoop sitting sadly in his bed, for taking him to the safety of a vets straight away.”
It is a heartbreaking story and hopefully Snoop will find a loving home soon.
