The scene took place in Englebelmer, France, where the animal welfare group 30 Millions d’Amis had to intervene to save the 4-month-old pup.

The sweet little soul was saved thanks to a caring neighbour, who noticed she was in dire need of help. Not able to watch this poor dog suffer for a single minute more, he filmed a video of the pup and sent it to 30 Millions d’Amis, asking them for help.
Rescued in the nick of time
When volunteers from the charity arrived on site, they discovered the little dog drenched to the bone. It had been raining for the past few days and she had no place to take shelter in. She had been tied with a rope to as makeshift post. As agitated as she was, she had wrapped the rope around the post so many times that she could have easily been choked to death had help not come soon.
It was a devastating and infuriating scene for the rescuers to find. Despite the terrible conditions she was living in, the Lab mix was so happy to see her rescuers, wiggling her entire body with joy and whimpering with excitement.
She was brought to a shelter in Ponthieu Marquenterre, Buigny-Saint-Maclou. She was fed and treated for her various health problems. Being so young and good-looking, she quickly found a foster family to take her in and teach her the ways of being a good dog.
Desolating but powerful footage
The video is now being used by the charity to prosecute her previous owner.
In the heart-breaking video, you can see just how happy the little dog is to get a little human contact, and, sadly, you can also hear her owner’s voice in the background, clearly telling her to be quiet.
We are just glad this pup has been rescued and hope she will find a fur-ever home full of love in the weeks to come.
