‘Who is the owner that dumped a pregnant dog?’, Netizens enraged
Netizens are appalled at a picture of a pregnant pet dog tied to a street-lamp post.
On November 3rd, a picture titled ‘pregnant abandoned dog’ was uploaded in an online community.
In the picture, a dog is tied to a steel post of a street-light. On a sheet of paper attached to its back was scribbled ‘Take and keep her. I kept her for 4 years. Her name is Baby. She’s pregnant. I leave her here because I have to move out of the city due to personal circumstances.’ The owner attached the paper to the dog’s back with yellow acrylic tape.
The dog’s white coat was tainted dark and the ground was soaked with liquid that might have come from the dog. Its belly was large with foetuses inside it.
The uploader said ‘How can a human being do this? How can you leave her tied to a street-light post after you gave her a name and lived with her for 4 years?’ and further condemned the owner, saying ‘I can’t help but curse you’.
Upon seeing the picture, netizens commented ‘Where is it? Let’s find the owner’, ‘A pregnant dog…That is so harsh’, ‘What a poor dog because of a bad owner. I hope she will find a nice home next time.’
The dog was saved by the district animal rescue team from Joongang-dong, Dong-gu, Daejeon on Novemebr 1st and is waiting for adoption. According to the Daejeon City Animal Shelter, it is a female white Maltese estimated to be 4 years old. It is currently waiting for an adopter.
Comments from Nate:
That is not even a human… The owner deserves to be treated the same.. Too cruel that it makes me ashamed that I am a human, too…
Those who abuse animals should probably be legally banned from owning any animal…..
Saekki less worthy than a dog. That saekki should be caught, even if it’s by checking the nearby CCTV. Bad saekki.
First of all, I am a pet owner myself. A while ago, walking by an animal clinic, I noticed a poster looking for a missing dog with a reward of 5 million won. It was not a particularly expensive dog but a Shitzu and the owner had it for 3 years. From a dog owner’s perspective, the reason for such a high reward can be understood because raising a dog feels like raising not just an animal but a younger sibling…a family. So if you lose a dog, it’s not so different from losing a family… Don’t talk bluntly before you have experience with pet dogs…
I don’t like dogs much…. Around this time last year, my wife brought home an old Chihuahua that seemed to have been abandoned. Although I don’t like dogs, since it’s a living thing, I took it to an animal clinic next day and found it was as old as an 80-year-old human… The real age was about 10 years old?.. The doctor said it doesn’t have any other disease but it might be suffering from dementia..??;;; ‘Do dogs get dementia, too?’, I asked ignorantly only to be embarrassed by the doctor.ㅡㅡ….It wasn’t simply that the dog forgot potty training. It even peed on its own sleeping spot and kept sleeping on it…. The thing I cannot comprehend is….how can you spend almost 10 years together and then dump the dog on a cold day because it is not healthy….well…the dog died around the 15th last month…. It spent just one year at my home….I prayed for the dogㅡㅡ…… If you are not confident that you can keep a dog until it becomes old and dies, do not get it in the first place…I was very disheartened by the poor dog….
I also have been taking care of a Maltese suffering from womb infection for 6 years. I have rescued dogs and also have sent them through adoption. The abandoned kids’ hearts are broken too much.. because they know they have been dumped… My blood stream is reversing…How can you do that with a human mask on. What might the dog have looked like when the owner was turning around after attaching that thing on her back.. on the cold ground with pregnancy… By the way, don’t they have euthanasia at the Daejeon shelter? It really makes me grind my teeth.. It’s easy to catch a disease at a shelter.. I hope she meets a good owner soon.
The owner should be dumped by his or her own children when old~~ /spit!!
How desperately might she have been waiting for the owner, trembling in coldness and hunger? I hope she forgets the inhuman owner and meets a better one.
Are you a human?? I don’t know if you are a man or a woman but imagine you were dumped when you were pregnant…You make me swear on a Monday morning…
Let’s regulate pet dog shops!! And make it illegal to buy and sell too young puppies.. Because anyone can sell and buy them, humans worse than animals do whatever they want and animals are abandoned!
Implement a registration system for pets at any cost!!! Life is precious.
Ah…it makes me want to curse in the morning… ㅠ How can you dump and leave her with pregnancy like that….after 4 years… The taping on her back… It doesn’t seem to be something done by a human. People like that deserve to be treated the same way… The law should do it…It’s really suffocating… I am ashamed and sorry as an owner of a companion dog…. ㅠI hope she meets a good owner and doesn’t get disheartened.. ㅠ
Let me tell you one thing. If you are not confident, don’t get pets like dogs or cats. Don’t just get them because you are lonely and dump them because they are troublesome.
You never understand until you have a dog. You learn that it only looks at you. How much fear the dumped dog might have felt.. Irresponsible people should really not have a dog in the first place…
I don’t understand those people who say ‘These people are all dog stans’ or ‘I guess you don’t eat meat’. This is not a matter of whether you eat meat or not. We are raging against animal abuse and disrespect for living creatures. Then because we humans eat meat, do you think we can do whatever to living things?
