Adorable puppy waits for heartless owner to return after being ABANDONED by side of road

The little brown dog sat patiently in a chair last week, waiting for their owner to return. 

Eventually, a woman saw the malnourished dog along the road in Brookhaven and rang an animal control officer from the police department, according to WLBT reporters. 

When Sharon Norton arrived at the scene she was outraged. Writing on Facebook, she said: “To the person that dumped this chair, your puppy was waiting for you to come back, slowly starving to death because it was afraid to leave the chair to find food.

“Shame on you for doing this to this puppy, but one day Karma will meet up with you.”

The abandoned puppy will reportedly receive all the necessary care before it goes to an animal shelter.

This sad scene comes just days after it was revealed UK animal welfare organisations are facing a huge rise in the number of animals being abandoned this summer.

Last summer the RSPCA saw an 85 percent increase in animals handed over compared to figures from the winter months.

In one horrific incident at Christmas last year,  an owner had dumped an adorable five-week old puppy in an alleyway and left it to die. 

The tiny-spotted puppy was found in a cardboard box in an alley in Bradford, Yorkshire. 

It was cold, shaking and suffering from paralysis in its hind legs which were smashed and useless. 

A member of the public found the paralysed puppy and looked after it before calling for help. 

But the puppy had to be put to sleep on welfare grounds.

Inspector Holgate said: “It’s so sad that we weren’t able to save this little puppy but I’m glad he’s no longer sat inside a cardboard box, frightened and in pain.

“At least he felt love and compassion in his final hours.”

In 2018 the RSPCA 23,673 calls about dumped animals in June, July and August, that’s one every six minutes.

Inspector Mike Beaman said: “We have unwanted new-born kittens and puppies dumped in boxes and bins, exotic pets cast aside and horses left in fields or by the side of the road like rubbish. 

“There is never an excuse to abandon an animal in this way. 

“Sadly, we do suspect some animals are abandoned because their owners couldn’t find anyone to care for them. 

We would always urge owners to provide care.”

The RSPCA advises anyone struggling with pet cover during the summer to ask friends and family for help or to approach a local rehoming charity for advice.
