Puppy Found Tied To Cement Block Will Never Be Chained Again

Life is hard for dogs on the streets, but it’s also hard for the millions of dogs living with inadequate or neglectful owners. Some pet owners are abusive and others are uneducated, but the result is the same: a life of suffering for the animal involved.

One organization that tries to combat this through educational drives is South African-based Sidewalk Specials.

They offer locals the resources and support to be the best dog owners possible, but they often run into some heartbreaking scenarios.

During a vaccine drive in De Doorns, staff with Sidewalk Specials came across a tiny 7-month-old puppy tied to a cement block. The little pup was tied with a rope that was digging into his neck, and it turns out that he’d spent his entire life tied to the block with no shelter from the elements.

Staff members approached the owners to educate them on proper care for the pup, Toby, but the owners made it clear they didn’t want him.

It’s always sad when owners don’t want their pups, but in this case, it may have been the best thing that could happen to little Toby.

For the first time in his life, Toby got to experience freedom as he left the cement block behind and went with Sidewalk Specials. They took him to a vet and got him vaccinated, fixed, and found the perfect home for him.

Now, Toby loves running freely on the beach, going on adventures with his new owner, and making friends everywhere he goes. He’ll never have to be chained again.
