In the middle of a shopping session, a couple was surprised to find a dog tied to a dumpster ... At his side, a very moving note.

A couple in South Carolina was surprised to find a dog tied to a dumpster near a shopping mall. As they approached, they discovered that a note had been left near the dog.

An abandoned but loved dog

The note said: "Free puppy. My name is Scooter. My owner is in prison."

Straight away, the couple unties the poor dog, who is then taken care of by the South Eastern Homeless Animals (SEHA) charity so that his chip can be checked and they can find people to take care of him.

As soon as I saw him, I knew he was a loved and pampered animal. He was clean, didn't have ticks, and had plenty of things with him, including a bag of grain-free kibble and a rather expensive necklace."

Long awaited reunion

Once the dog entered the shelter, they could scan his microchip. There, Paula discovered that Scooter's microchip had been disconnected but that the dog had travelled a lot in recent years. Paula then decided to contact the police officer who arrested Scooter's owner. She learned that the dog owner had entrusted it to friends so that he could be properly cared for, which obviously was not the case at all.

Eventually, Paula decided to contact the dog owner’s mother. After a long discussion, she drove an hour to bring the dog back to her, which led to a lovely reunion and a very touching moment.

Thanks to Paula's devotion, the dog is happy in his family today.

Well done, Paula; this dog was very lucky that it was you who found him.
