A woman in the U.S. was out taking a walk when she spotted a tiny puppy sitting on its own. As she got closer, she made a shocking and heart-breaking discovery.

The little puppy was just sitting by a wall on his own, not on a lead and with no food or owner nearby.

As the woman approached the tiny pup she saw it had a white sign around his neck.

When she got close enough to read the sign, she saw it said, “I need a home”.

The woman, understandably worried about the little animal, contacted The Rescue Journey in Maine.

Sweet puppy

The animal shelter has posted a heartbreaking video that shows the moment volunteers came to help the poor little pup. Volunteers filmed as one of them slowly approached the puppy and reached out to the dog with his hand. The pup, just two months old, was clearly excited to see someone and started barking as the man stroked him.

While no one really knows how long the dog had been there, it’s thought it may have been wandering around for several days.

The volunteers gave the cute pup some water before taking it back to the shelter.

The puppy was given a thorough health check. The shelter is now preparing the friendly little chap for adoption and hopes (as do we) he will find a loving home for him very soon.
