He Saw A Woman Doing This To Her Dog. So He Took Matters Into His Own Hands.

It’s hard to comprehend why people keep pets that they don’t want to take care of. In the case of this dog, his owners merely put him on a chain and kept him outside – they even admitted they had done so for the last 10-15 years.

One neighbor noticed the dog that he started calling Rusty, and wanted to help. Slowly but surely, he gained Rusty’s trust – not an easy task when a dog has been neglected for so long. Often, there’s a stigma that formerly abused and forgotten animals can never make great pets. However, Rusty’s story proves that theory wrong. A large portion of his life was a nightmare – but his new chapter will bring tears to your eyes.
