A stranger who approached the owners and requested them to let go of the dog was unfortunately chased away.
Regrettably, a huge number of animals are being abused all over the world. The largest victim of this injustice has to be the strays who unfortunately have no one to look after them. But domestic pets can be sometimes reduced to the same fate as strays. Shocking, isn't it? Well, not really. Abuse of domestic dogs are sadly a reality also, thanks to the heartlessness of owners.
Such was the case of this poor dog in Mexico. Recently, heartbreaking images of an innocent dog chained on a short leash and tied to a window in the scorching heat of the sun went viral. This enraged animal lovers from the world over who demanded strong action against the owners. According to a report, due to the length of the chain, the dog wasn't even capable of standing on its fours, let alone sit.
I’m sorry if I saw this I’d walk up to door and choke the owners myself why don’t neighbors help do ridiculous! https://t.co/t5uI2N80go— Barbara Lee (@BarbaraLee12) June 28, 2019
The merciless actions of the owner were captured in the residential area of Emiliano Zapata in Teloloapan, Mexico. Owing to the shortness of the leash, the dog had his forelegs in the air as the poor soul was deliberately choked throughout the day. Remaining in a standing position is exhausting enough, imagine what this little pooch was going through when he was forced to stand all day on his hind legs. The relentless heat too didn't spare the unfortunate dog who struggled to breathe properly.

Owners claim the dog is “doing fine” and ask worried strangers to mind their own business. Spread the word to help this poor dog. https://t.co/aSP1yOKTUQ
Thankfully, this heinous act did not go unnoticed by people who often walked passed the neighborhood. Some of them did, in fact, approach the owners to inquire about the dog One of them went to the extent to plead with the owners to let go of the dog but was chased out of their property!
While this sort of posts trouble me a lot but I m sharing this with a hope that this poor soul shall be rescued and the evils be dealt with .. https://t.co/vuyMS2qUQF— JAYEET ROY (@jayeetDVagabond) June 27, 2019
When someone pointed at the obvious precarious situation of the dog, the ungrateful owners opined that their dog was "doing fine." They even prided themselves with the fact that the dog's "welfare" was taken care of. Just because they provided the poor dog food and water, they did not see a problem in the way they were keeping the dog.
This is cruel and something should be done IMMEDIATELY! https://t.co/zVuNYhdWYT— Vanessa (@MissFinness) June 27, 2019
Now, the stranger who was chased away did not quietly move on with his life, instead, he clicked pictures of the depressing situation the dog had to face every day. He then posted it on social media, with the hope that someone with proper authority would come forward and provide a solution. We hope the animal activists in the area put their foot down and help this dog before its too late.
I wish to fucking tie you like this https://t.co/qvDJVak60z— Suchandra Dutta (@Su_dutta) June 27, 2019
