A man abandoned a senior dog in a field with just a note and the dog’s belongings after his neighbor gave him the dog and he agreed to take care of her.
12-year-old Tessa’s owner had to move away and she couldn’t take Tessa with her, so she asked if her neighbor would look after her dog instead. The man agreed with no intention on keeping Tessa, it seems he just wanted to put her owner at ease. So instead of trying to bring Tessa to a shelter, or at the very least try and find another home for her, the man left the dog alone in a field behind some bushes with a note.
The senior dog laid there with her bed, her bowls, some belongings and a note that ended with, “I don’t need a dog.”Thankfully, this story has a happy ending because Alan Webster, who runs South Yorkshire Pet Ambulance, a 24-hour volunteer rescue service, found Tessa and took her home.
When Webster got to her, she was wet and no one is exactly sure how long she was there for. The note listed some details about Tessa- that she likes tea, coffee, and watered milk.
As soon as help arrived, Tessa seemed incredibly grateful and happy to be somewhere safe. According to the South Yorkshire Pet Ambulance Facebook page, the man who left Tessa has been found, but there’s no word on whether charges will be filed.
Tessa was taken in by Dogs Trust, where she will be put up for adoption and we can’t wait for her to be all loved up!
