Bo Ai Animal Protection Centre Of Guangyuan
Our founder, Du Yufeng saw a little dog in the forest area near to our shelter when she was taking food there. She phoned 2 of our volunteers to help her catch it.When the volunteers arrived, the little dog ran deep into the forest. They had to navigate steep, slippery hillsides full of trees and undergrowth to locate the dog, a little Shih Tzu. Eventually, Du managed to coax the dog to her with food in her pocket and once a leash was in place, they all had a lengthy walk back to Du's car where she was able to be driven home, the dog on her lap 💖
As you may know, Du's health wasn't so good a few months ago and being in her 60th year, this was a physically demanding rescue for her and it took a long time.
Dogs like these cost a lot of money to buy but some people get tired of dogs once they grow out of the 'cute puppy' stage and think nothing of throwing them away!
We know this isn't a lost dog because our shelter is a long way from residential areas. This dog was dumped, abandoned, left - on purpose. Imagine the thoughts he must have had, watching his family drive away and leave him there. Maybe the owner will get a 'new' puppy for Chinese New Year. Then the cycle will continue. . . 😡
We can only assume that an owner dumps their dog near the forest because they think that we will take care of them but many, like this one, are not tied to the shelter gate. Instead, they are left to roam and if they are not found they will eventually starve to death or die from sickness. This dog is very lucky.
