A dog was found dumped in the sewer by a heartless owner according to a report by Mirror. If that wasn’t bad enough, the dog’s eyes were glued shut so she couldn’t follow them back home.
It took place in the city of Barrancabermeja, Colombia but Carlos, a local resident found the dog and saw her situation. He then rushed her to a local clinic and she is getting treatment. Veterinarians examined the animal and confirmed that glue was used on her eyelids. It is their opinion that the owner did so “to stop it following its owner back home.”
The dog was trying to open her eyes and scratched them with her paws, leading to an eye infection. The vets took three days to remove the glue carefully but that didn’t stop the fact it was done. The eyes are a very sensitive part of the body and animal activist, Zoraida Santiago spoke about how precise the treatment had to be. “The vet realized that its eyes had been glued and while trying to get rid of it, she caused an infection,” he said.
It is thought that it may take 4 months for the healing to be complete. Antibiotics are currently being provided to the abandoned dog and she is going through a number of tests to see if there are other conditions that need to be treated.

Carlos not only rescued the little pooch, he decided to take her home. The former owner has not been identified but many are outraged over what was done and have taken to Twitter to voice their anger.

The person responsible should be tortured in the same manner. @rickygervais just look at this
Do the same to the owner and see if they find their way home
