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.

A large portion of his life was a nightmare – but his new chapter will bring tears to your eyes.
