Two cousins were enjoying a day out when they spotted a terrier alone by a dumpster at the back of a fitness center. At first, they thought nothing of it. Perhaps he was simply tied to a tree while his owner was shopping. Then, however, they saw the note, and their hearts dropped, as they realized that this owner wasn’t coming back for their pet.
You don’t expect to discover an abandoned dog when you go out shopping. But that’s exactly what happened to this pair, who visited the South Carolina shopping mall on March 7, 2017. And not only was it an unusual event in such a setting, but there was something very strange about the whole situation.
For one thing, the dog wasn’t tied up with any old piece of rope; no, he had a leash attached to an expensive-looking collar. He also didn’t look like he was neglected or abused – which can often be the case in examples of abandonment. However, no other passersby paid the dog any attention.
