Graham Dobson was on his way to work when he spotted a sad and abandoned boxer chained to a lamppost. When the heartless owner failed to return hours later, Dobson called for help.
While he waited to see if the owner would return, he offered the dog water, food and kept him company. He told the Daily Mail, “I came to work in the morning and found the dog tied up on the main road looking sad and scared.”
Dodson went on to say, “It was heartbreaking to see he had been left and how upset he was, as he was a real nice dog and so friendly. He was really scared. I don’t understand why people would just dump a dog. I love animals and don’t want to see them abandoned or mistreated.”
Abandoning a dog is never the answer. Dobson said, “He must have been just sat there not knowing why he had been left and wondering if his owner would come back. I just hope that now the dog warden has him that somebody will be able to give him the good home that he deserves”.
Nottinghamshire and Yorkshire Boxer Rescue took in the sweet boy and named him Max.
The sad photo of Max has since gone viral. People are heartbroken for the dog and infuriated at his previous owners. Many took to leaving comments. One said, “Such a selfless act, it is so cruel to do that, I hope he finds his forever home.”
Another wrote, “Really upsets me when people dump animals, look at his sad face, I love him ❤️. All animals want is shelter, food, water, play and a lot of love he’s gorgeous ❤️ hope he goes to a loving home and it will be his forever home xx.”
