In the name of the love he carried for his beloved puppy, this boy gave up on him only to ensure he was safe. The brave kid left an emotional handwritten letter to explain his burdensome decision!
The puppy, a few weeks old pitbull, was left outside a shelter by his 12-year-old in the city of Michoacan, Mexico. When the staff at the Refugio Xollin arrived at the shelter in the morning, they were surprised to find a box with a puppy inside it and a stuffed animal next to him. They brought the adorable puppy inside without knowing who may have left him there. But they soon learned the reason behind the incident.
The cute little pitbull belongs to a boy named Andrés. However, he decided to give up on his beloved furry companion and explained the harsh decision in a heartbreaking letter. It turned out that Andrés’ dad was very ᴀɢɢʀᴇssɪᴠᴇ, so he decided to leave him at the shelter to protect his puppy from his father’s ʙᴀᴅ behaviour.
In this way, Andrés hoped that the innocent soul would eventually find a loving family to adopt and care for him, just as he deserves. The boy’s powerful words left everyone in tears at the shelter. More, they decided to share the inspiring story on Facebook.
“Someone left this dog inside a box at the shelter’s door, with a plush toy and a note,” Refugio Xollin wrote on Facebook. “A kid wrote the note, and he explained his dad was always ʙᴇᴀᴛɪɴɢ the dog and was planning to sell him. So, in such a state of ᴅᴇsᴘᴀɪʀ, he left the dog here to save him.”
André’s incredible selflessness didn’t go unnoticed. After reading his sad letter, the shelter did everything in its power to find a forever home and a loving family for Rene – how they named the puppy.
Here are André’s expressive words!
“My name is Andrés, and I am 12 years old,” the note, initially written in Spanish, reads. “My mom and I decided to leave my dog in your hands, hiding it from my dad because he is considering selling him. But he ᴍɪsᴛʀᴇᴀᴛs and ᴋɪᴄᴋs him. One day he ᴋɪᴄᴋᴇᴅ him so hard that he ʜᴜʀᴛ his tail. I hope you can help and take care of him. I left him a stuffed animal so he won’t forget me.”
A good family will shelter Rene until someone will eventually adopts him. However, judging by the massive requests the shelter received in the first days, it will take a little while until he meets his new parents. Over 300 adoption requests have been filled in the first days since the story was shared online.
The boy’s decision to give away his dog highlights some critical issues regarding pet ownership. First and foremost, it underscores the emotional attachment that humans can have to their pets. For many people, pets are not just animals but family members. They provide companionship, comfort, and unconditional love, and losing them can be just as ᴘᴀɪɴꜰᴜʟ as losing a human family member. The boy’s decision to give away his dog shows that he is willing to sacrifice his happiness for the sake of his pet, which is a testament to the deep bond they have formed.
Secondly, the story raises questions about the responsibilities of owning a pet. Owning a pet is a big responsibility that requires time, effort, and financial resources. Pet owners must provide their pets with food, water, shelter, exercise, and medical care, among other things. In addition, they must ensure that their pets are safe and well-behaved and do not ᴛʜʀᴇᴀᴛᴇɴ other animals or people. The boy’s father may have needed the money, but he was also responsible for taking care of his dog and ensuring that it was not ᴍɪsᴛʀᴇᴀᴛᴇᴅ or sold to an unfit owner.
The story highlights animals’ role in our lives and the importance of treating them with kindness and respect. Animals are sentient beings that can feel ᴘᴀɪɴ, joy, ꜰᴇᴀʀ, and love, just like humans. They deserve to be treated with dignity and compassion and not as commodities to be bought and sold for profit. The boy’s decision to give away his dog was an act of kindness towards the animal and a reminder that we should all strive to treat animals with the same service and respect we would want.
