Couple Finds Puppy Abandoned In A Park With Saddest Message Written On Her Body.

As humans, it's our duty to protect and love creatures that our smaller and weaker than us. At the very least it's our responsibility, and a part of being a decent human, not to cause them harm. Unfortunately, some people just haven't received that memo. Every single day dogs are abused, abandoned, and left to die. Keep reading to see how this pup's future looked very grim, that was until some good samaritans stepped in to help.

A couple of good samaritans were visiting a park in Chillicothe, Ohio, when they spotted something that shook them to the core.

Inside of wire cage was an abandoned puppy. Someone leaving a dog locked in a cage in the middle of a park is bad enough, but it gets worse.

The puppy had words written all over her in permanent marker.

Her previous owners wrote things such as "free," "good home only," and "I am a gift from God." The people who found the scared pup immediately called the police and she was brought to the Ross County Humane Society.

The manager of the kennel, Monica Denney, was speechless when she saw the puppy.

“We were all pretty stunned about it. I’ve worked here for three years and have seen quite a lot of terrible things … but I’ve never seen anything like this," said Denney in an interview with The Dodo.

She was covered in marker, but she was healthy in every other way.

It was time for the little lady to have a name so the staff at the shelter decided to name her Marvella, which means miracle in French.

After a bit of scrubbing with dish soap and hydrogen peroxide, Marvella was free of the permanent marker.

“At first we were like, ‘What kind of person would do this?' I think maybe they didn’t think we would end up with the dog and share her story so widely like we have. People from all across the country know about her now," said Denney.
