12-Years-Old Boy Leaves His Little Puppy At A Shelter So His Dad Can’t Beat It

Xollin, a shelter, found an adorable puppy at their doorstep with a letter from a 12-year-old boy on February 13th. The shelter posted on their Facebook page: “Someone left this dog at the door of the shelter, inside a box, with a plush toy and a note. The note was written by a kid and he explained his dad was always beating the dog and was planning to sell him. So, in such a state of despair, he left the dog here to save him.”

After Xollin shared this story, people from all over the world wanted to help, donate, and adopt the puppy. The shelter’s priority was to check the health of the puppy. “We need to take the dog to the vet so he can check his tail, which apparently is fractured. We also need to remove parasites and get him a check-up. This means more expenses and works for us, but luckily the dog will be safe.”

The letter says: “My name is Andrés and I’m 12 years old. My mom and I decided to leave him to you. All of this is behind my dad’s back because he was thinking of selling him. But he is always beating and kicking the dog. Once he kicked him so hard that his little tail got injured. I hope you can help him and take care of him. Here is a plush toy so he won’t forget me.”
