A man was caught on camera abandoning his dog just days before Christmas. The video went viral and thousands of people offered to adopt the abandoned dog.
A CCTV footage, released by the RSPCA, shows the owner cruelly abandoning his dog as he is seen leaving the dog to the other side of the road and fleeing the scene in his car while the pet desperately tries to get in the car.
The video left everyone heartbroken and thousands of people offered to adopt Snoop.
Snoop the dog appeared on Good Morning Britain and looked in good spirits.
RSPCA inspector Natalie Perehovsky said:
‘This is heart-breaking, it’s the way he runs after the owner; he clearly loved who was there. He was obviously distressed.’
‘I don’t know what was going through their mind when they did that. It could be the expense, it could be family changes, there are hundreds of reasons.’
‘But there are places that help people, you can take him to charities or dog homes; there’s no excuse.’
‘We’ve had lots of people, he’s not for rehoming yet but soon as he is we will let people know,’
‘For now, we want to know where he’s come from, any bit of information to try and piece together how he got where he was.’
‘His microchip details are not up to date so we know he’s had another home since then.’
‘He’s been in the kennels. He’s good with other dogs, he likes to be next to you. He’s had so much attention.’
A passer-by found the dog and took him to a local vet who called the RSPCA.
While the animal charity has launched an investigation into the owner.
