Boy Leaves His Helpless Puppy at a Shelter so His Dad Can’t Beat It


Sadly, the world is not always fun and bright. Sometimes hard decisions have to be made, even if they break your heart. A few days ago, this 12-year-old boy had to make one just like that.

On February 13th, a shelter called Xollin found an adorable puppy at their doorstep with a letter from a boy. The shelter said on their Facebook page: “Someone left this dog at the door of the shelter, inside a box, with a plush toy and a note. The note was written by a kid and he explained his dad was always beating the dog and was planning to sell him. So, in such a state of despair, he left the dog here to save him.”

After they shared this story, people from all over the world wanted to help, donate, and adopt the puppy.

The shelter’s first priority was to check the health of the puppy.

“We need to take the dog to the vet so he can check his tail, which apparently is fractured. We also need to remove parasites and get him a check-up. This means more expenses and work for us, but luckily the dog will be safe.”

They found out the 12-year-old boy named Andrés was from México state. Not much more information is known about him.

The letter says: “My name is Andrés and I’m 12 years old. My mom and I decided to leave him to you. All of this is behind my dad’s back, because he was thinking of selling him. But he is always beating and kicking the dog. Once he kicked him so hard that his little tail got injured. I hope you can help him and take care of him. Here is a plush toy so he won’t forget me.”
