This happened Saturday according to the caption under the picture, the story is also dated Saturday. Yet it states that the dog appears to be well cared for but no one has come forward to claim her so she's up for adoption. Perhaps give the owners the weekend to find her?

Me too Marissa.... dogs are so loving, caring, intelligent and loyal. They don't owe anyone anything and they still suffer, we humans at times bring to ourselves our own bad, hard times. But animals have no reason to suffer and especially in the hands of their owners which sadly happens more than we even want to think about. If I had it in my power anyone who abused or were careless with their animals would do minimum 5 yrs in prison, not jail PRISON.

they are animals, and obviously they love or they wouldn't put themselves in danger to protect those they love. There have been other stories where the dogs have saved their companion owners, the kids they play with etc. I'll say one thing you couldn't even be classified as an animal, no grey cells in your brain....not smart enough. I hope you get bit by a rabid animal!

Great post-couldn't agree more-
At least a person can often move away from
An abusive set up but not an animal.

I was so moved by the link sent in above-
The innocent loyalty of a dog-
I know it with mine.

My son says dogs are sweetly innocent like 2yr old children
Who never grow up! How true..

Bethy999 was saying that this shows that animals have feelings, contrary to what many believe.

So Sad. <tear falls>

Heartbreaking. I witnessed the same thing once. The eyes of that companion dog,.. I never forget his look of grief. No one can tell me people have more of a soul than animals.
