A shocking video has surfaced online where two men-in-uniform can be seen leading away, what appears to be an American bulldog, on a leash. The dog who is nothing more than a bag of bones was rescued after it was locked in a house without food or water for three weeks.
Katie Dunkely, 21, who lives in the neighbourhood at Barry, South Wales was so distraught that she climbed over the fence of the home where it had been locked up and abandoned and let herself in through the backdoor to save the dog.
She also found a female dog which was ‘extremely aggressive’ due to the conditions they had been left in.
Dunkely also called the police and Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA), who turned up and took away the two animals.
The female dog, who was in an equally bad state, was videoed being taken away in a cage. The male dog meanwhile was led away on a lead, which was also videoed.
It turns out that the dog’s owner had recently broken up with her beau and had left the house with the dogs still inside without any food or water.
She said she found them locked in the living room, covered in their own faeces and urine. The animals had no water and had been chewing away at food tins.
While she plans on giving a statement so that the reckless owner can be punished accordingly, Dunkley plans on adopting the male bulldog.
Dunkley has posted on social media, "Today I broke into someone's property, I rescued this poor boy who was full of nothing but love and without a bad bone in his body. There was also another dog who was extremely aggressive due to their living conditions and a deceased either small dog or cat and had to be left to a dog handler. He's now been handed over to the RSPCA after spending the day cuddling, having a bath and being fed up. I've applied to adopt this lovely boy once he is available to rehome."
The video meanwhile has gone viral with people condemning the act of the woman for leaving her pets behind.
