There certainly is a lot to consider when you move. You have to pack everything, ensure that you have forwarded the mail and of course, you need to remember to take everything with you. Unfortunately, this story falls short of the mark. It happened in St. Louis and when the new owners moved into a home, they found a lovely dog chained in the basement and left to die.
The new owner said he had just bought the home and found the pitbull chained in the basement! He had no idea how long he had been down there.
The rescue volunteers knew that time was limited and that they had to help this poor dog. As it turns out, the pitbull could not have been happier when they showed up. When they shined a flashlight down the basement stairs, they were met with a wagging tail. In the words of the communication director of the rescue group: “She was nearly choking herself as she was so excited to see us. When we freed her, she couldn’t stop jumping up and down and giving hugs.”
You are probably wondering by now who it was that would have left such a beautiful dog behind to fend for himself. As it turns out, there was a squatter living in the property and he is the one that left the dog behind, as well as a lot of trash. Nobody knows his identity or why he decided to leave the dog behind. It is clear, however, that he had no intention of taking care of the dog. She didn’t even have a food or water bowl.
This dog absolutely loves everyone and when people are around, she will be craving attention. Her rescuers have named her “Jumping Bean” and she has earned that reputation. Her personality is addictive and enough people are giving her attention now that she will never be lonely again.
