A beautiful Labrador-mix dog thought she was going for a regular car ride until her callous owner pulled up to the side of the road, opened the door for the dog to leave and then quickly sped off.
The heartbreaking footage was all captured on a local man's CCTV and as if the video couldn't get any sadder, the poor pooch immediately realises exactly what's happening and frantically chases after her owner's car to try and catch up.
Thankfully, the CCTV owner immediately contacted the police and the abandoned pup was taken to Rescue One animal shelter.
The veterinarian team found the dog (now named Honey) to be dehydrated and with burned paws from running on the hot pavement.
Thankfully, Honey is now in a loving foster home and enjoys playing with her furry siblings. She's still looking for her forever home but with inquiries coming in about her every day, the staff doesn't think there will be any trouble rehoming her.
Charged with neglect
The dog owner was found to be a local woman who has since been charged with animal neglect and abandonment.
As us animal lovers know, abandoning a dog is never a solution. There are shelters that will take unwanted pets in and look to find them new homes.
The video shows the loyalty and love of the dog even to an owner who truly doesn't deserve it. Watch the heart-wrenching video here:
