A photo of a sad dog chained to a lamppost has sparked fury online.
The Boxer pooch was found tied up next to a road without water, food or shelter.
It was Graham Dobson who found the heartbroken dog and brought it water and food before waiting for the owner to show up but no one came.
He then called the dog warden and told Hull Live that the experience was heartbreaking.
Dobson told Hull Live: “I came to work in the morning and found the dog tied up on the main road looking sad and scared.
“I got told by other people that he’d been tied up for more than an hour, and I fed and watered him as he’d been left with nothing and then called the dog warden to pick him up.
“It was heartbreaking to see he had been left and how upset he was, as he was a real nice dog and so friendly, just really scared.
“I don’t understand why people would just dump a dog – they don’t know right from wrong and I just felt so awful for him – I love animals and don’t want to see them abandoned or mistreated.”
The 43-year-old added: “He must have been just sat there not knowing why he had been left and wondering if his owner would come back and thinking to himself ‘what have I done?’.
“I just hope that now the dog warden has him that somebody will be able to give him the good home that he deserves.”
Social media users also echoed Dobson’s emotions.
One person wrote: “Why would anyone do this poor little thing? I hope someone will give him a good home and love him and find the tosser who dumped him at the side of the road.”
Another said: “Bastards whoever they are!! What a beautiful boy he is, I hope he finds a loving forever home poor little mite didn’t deserve this.”
The owner returned to the scene and said he could no longer take care of the dog named Max. He also signed him over to the dog wardens.
Max the dog has been moved to Nottinghamshire and Yorkshire Boxer Rescue who will help him find a new forever home.
