We’ve all seen it before. There is a horrific storm brewing outside, yet there are poor, innocent animals who either have no forever home to call their own or are stuck with inconsiderate owners that care very little about their pets’ well-being. It breaks your heart every time you see it happen, but depending on the situation, there is very little that can be done.
This man who filmed this video would simply not take no for an answer and decided to take matters into his own hands. Unlike so many others who see this kinds of injustices taking place and turn a blind eye or make an excuse as to why they cannot help, this man is truly a good Samaritan.
The dog that we see in this clip was stranded outside during a real humdinger of a storm. Tied to a tree, with no means of protecting himself from the elements, it breaks your heart to see an animal suffer like this. Some people prove time and again that they are not responsible enough to be pet owners and this dog’s owner seems to fall directly into that category.
After watching the dog suffer, this man finally calls his neighbor, to find out what the reason is for this sort of cruel treatment. We can all agree that it certainly takes a great deal of guts to pick up the phone and make this kind of problem your own. He asked her if she knew the dog that was trapped outside and she immediately sprang into action.
We would all like to believe that we have the same capacity to care for another living creatures. Once she made her way to the dog, she couldn’t help but notice that he had been tied to the tree with rope. This is difficult to stomach and it takes a special kind of creep to do something so callous and so hateful to a creature who has done nothing to warrant that kind of treatment.
The woman then heads back inside, returns with a knife and finally cuts the poor dog free from his watery prison. From there, she takes him inside so that he can get dry and warm. Hopefully, this video provides proof that there are far more good people in this world than bad. No updates on the dog at the moment, but here’s hoping he did not have to go back to the cruel people who left him in this predicament in the first place.
