Sometimes one has to go to extreme lengths to keep their beloved ones safe and happy. Here is the story of a 12-year old kid from Mexico who had to make the toughest decision of his life. Andrés had to give up on his puppy to protect him from his dad and he did so in the best interest of his pup.
Unfortunately, the world is not all flowers and rainbow. Sometimes we come across incidents that leave us heartbroken. Just like that video of a 9-year old bullied by his classmates because of his dwarfism. These incidents make us lose our faith in humanity. Recently a 12-year old had to make a decision that was very difficult yet very important to make. The kid had decided to give up on his beloved pet to keep him alive.
On February 13th, a shelter called Xollin found an adorable puppy at their doorstep with a letter from a boy. The shelter said on their Facebook page, “Someone left this dog at the door of the shelter, inside a box, with a plush toy and a note. The note was written by a kid and he explained his dad was always beating the dog and was planning to sell him. So, in such a state of despair, he left the dog here to save him.”
After the story became viral, many people came forward to help donate and adopt the puppy. Giving us hope that not all is lost in this world!
The shelter immediately arranged a vet for the puppy. “We need to take the dog to the vet so he can check his tail, which apparently is fractured. We also need to remove parasites and get him a check-up. This means more expenses and work for us, but luckily the dog will be safe.”
The kid left a desperate note for help for his puppy. It was revealed that the kid is named Andrés from México state. No further information was provided for the kid.
The letter translates to, “My name is Andrés and I’m 12 years old. My mom and I decided to leave him to you. All of this is behind my dad’s back, because he was thinking of selling him. But he is always beating and kicking the dog. Once he kicked him so hard that his little tail got injured. I hope you can help him and take care of him. Here is a plush toy so he won’t forget me.”
The kid even left a toy behind for his dog so that he won't forget him ever. The shelter named the beautiful pup Rene. They are looking for the right family for Rene and so far they have got options of 30 families.
In their post, the shelter asked people to not only make animal posts viral but also come forward with their support to adopt and donate for animals. There are lots of stray animals who need love and care from humans but are ignored and treated like dirt.
“If you all opened your heart and your home to all and not only to this dog, all our animals in the shelter would have been already adopted twice. Thanks to the few people who came to the shelter offering their help to protect other animals suffering abuse or being abandoned in our district and surroundings.”
