There are a lot of dog videos you can see on the Internet today. Some are cute – videos of dogs doing crazy yet cute things.
Some are heartwarming and some are heartbreaking, like the viral video of Snoop, the abandoned dog.
Snoop is a Staffordshire bull terrier which was left beside a road in England a few months ago. The poor dog was left on a Monday night by his owner with all his belongings. His owner looked around first before removing Snoop’s collar and once Snoop walked to the side of a structure, his owner immediately ran back to the car, leaving the poor Snoop behind.
Alarmed, the poor dog ran after his owner. The owner shuts the door and stayed in the car for a few moments while Snoop was circling the car and reaching for the window. It is as if he is pleading for its owner to not leave him behind. Snoop kept on circling around and is clearly broken-hearted.
The video circulated around the Internet and made a lot of dogs and animal lovers cried. It hurts seeing an animal being abandoned because they don’t have the ability to talk and to convince their owners to not leave them behind.
However, Snoop is one lucky dog because he got adopted. Laurence Squire adopted the poor dog and made Snoop smile again.
Squire said, “One night I was watching the news when Snoop’s story appeared. What happened to him was shocking, and it was clear from the footage – the way he tried to get back into the car – that he was a loyal dog.”
Snoop is indeed a loyal dog and is prone to having separation anxiety according to the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA). This is not surprising since he was abandoned and this might’ve given him some emotional scars.
Lucky for Snoop, his dad is a home-based worker so Snoop will not have to worry about being separated from him.
Rachel Butler, a spokeswoman for the RSPCA conducted a home visit at Snoop’s new home and according to her, Snoop is getting a lot of love and attention and is living like a king in his new home. Well, we all know Snoop deserved all of these good things because of what happened to him.
Squire also added some statements about Snoop’s condition. According to him, Snoop seemed like the perfect dog for him and that he could offer the home that Snoop deserved. “As soon as he came into the house for the first time, he jumped on the sofa and it was as though he decided that was the space for him! He loves to lie on the back of the sofa and, if I put the fire on, he will curl up in front of it.”, he added.
