You may think all kids love animals. But a passer-by couldn’t believe his eyes when he saw what the children were doing to a poor defenceless and homeless dog.

The man was out walking in St. Louis in the U.S. when he spots a group of children throwing stones and sticks to what looked like a stray dog.

Shocking behaviour

The man was understandably shocked by what he had seen. But before he got the chance to do anything, the dog tried to run away and the children chased her into the street.

Finally, the man was able to intervene and get the dog away from the children.

Once the dog was safe, the man contacted the Stray Rescue of St. Louis.

Heartbreaking video

In this heartbreaking video, you can see the moment someone from the rescue charity approached the dog for the first time. The video shows the dog looking very nervous and clearly uncomfortable with one of her back legs.

The rescue volunteer chats to the dog who wags her tail and despite her injuries, shows no aggression towards her.

Sister Moonshine

The dog, who has been named Sister Moonshine, was taken to the Stray Rescue of St Louis where she was given all the necessary medical care and treatment she needed.

Once she was fit and well, the shelter put her up for adoption.

The dog's new adopted owner posted a sweet photo of the happy pup relaxing with their other rescue dog.
