Before you get angry about this puppy being abandoned in a busy airport, take a moment to breathe. Abandoned animals are far too common, but in some cases (like this one), the choice to leave them might literally be between life and death. For one woman, she knew that if she didn’t abandon her 3-month-old Chihuahua, he wouldn’t live much longer at all.
Found in a Las Vegas airport, Chewy was left alone with a heartbreaking explanation and very little hope for the future. The note attached was filled with pain, but once a kind stranger read it, they immediately tried to help.
Hi! I’m Chewy! My owner was in an abusive relationship and couldn’t afford me to get on the flight. She didn’t want to leave me with all her heart but she has NO other option. My ex-boyfriend kicked my dog when we were fighting and he has a big knot on his head. He probably needs a vet. I love Chewy sooo much — please love and take care of him.”
The kind strangers immediately took him to a shelter to be cared for. Little Chewy was considered an emergency case and examined by a veterinarian. While he still needs time to heal, he is expected to make a full recovery!The shelter wants this story to be spread far and wide so that the woman will see that she did the right thing! They don’t want her to feel guilty about her choice, and they want her to know that her precious puppy is in good hands!
If she is ever able to, they also plan to help her reunite with Chewy when it is safe for them both!
