Richard Jordan was driving on a quiet road in Ontario, Canada when he suddenly spotted something out of the ordinary. Intrigued, he came to a stop.

A dog carrier was sitting on the side of the road, and it seemed like there was something inside.

A “top-notch” dog

Indeed, once Richard got closer, he realised there was a beautiful, black German Shepherd inside the crate. Unfortunately, the dog seemed scared and wouldn't let Richard approach him. So Richard decided to call for help.

Rescuers were able to take the gorgeous pup to a local shelter where he was examined more closely. The dog had been fitted with a collar which read ‘Borel’. It also turned out that Borel was microchipped, with the chip going back to a German Shepherd breeder all the way in Dallas, Texas.

Borel's mysterious story

How the dog ended up there, no one knows. Could he have fallen out the back of a vehicle? Most people believe that the crate would've broken into pieces if this was the case. Was he abandoned? Again, many people are dubious. How could one abandon a microchipped and AKC-registered pooch? Then again, no one has come forward to claim Borel…

Richard and Borel's other rescuers want to get to the bottom of the mystery before they rehome the dog. In any case, we know this beauty is in good hands, and won't struggle one bit to find a new home if he has to!
