Sadly, the world is not always fun and bright. Sometimes hard decisions have to be made, even if they break your heart. A few days ago, this boy had to make one just like that.
“On the 22nd of November, one of my collaborators from ‘Mascotas Coyoacán’ received a message warning her about a dog chained to a bench in a park and next to a note. The dog was abandoned at the place at eight in the morning and we were only notified at 3 o’clock in the afternoon. It made me think that someone would have already rescued the dog, but to our surprise, when we arrived, the dog was still in the same place surrounded by people trying to feed him from afar because at the moment, he was quite ᴀɢɢʀᴇssɪᴠᴇ.”
When they arrived, they found the dog still there with people around him trying to feed and help the poor pooch, but he was too ᴀɢɢʀᴇssɪᴠᴇ to approach.
The note was in Spanish and it was written by a child. It reads: “Hello, please, adopt me, I’m Max. Please, I’m asking you to adopt this little dog and take good care of him. It hurts a lot to leave my dog here, but I took this decision because my family is always ᴍɪsᴛʀᴇᴀᴛɪɴɢ/aʙᴜsing him and it made me so sad to see him suffering in those bad conditions. So, if you read this and you feel your heart, please, adopt him and take good care of him. If not, please, leave this note where it was, so others can read it and adopt him. Thanks.”
They soon realized the dog named Max was just a puppy and the aggression he was displaying was just fear.
“Immediately, through a video call, we contacted a trainer who always helps us with animals that have problems with aggression so he could guide us on how to get him off the bench, as he was not letting anyone approach.
It took us almost two hours to get him out. We realized he was a puppy and the problem was fear and not that he was aggressive, but that he was terrified. With the help of several neighbors who were bringing everything, I asked for more help from the trainer, who watched everything that was happening through the video call, guiding me on how to put a noose around the dog’s neck so we could cut the chain. It took some time, but we did it.”
Max is still searching for a new home, so if you’re searching for a lifelong companion, here is the perfect one.
