It's a sad fact that many people take in pets without really thinking ahead and considering how much responsibility they're actually taking on.

In the long run, many folks realize they just don't have the patience, money, or time to properly look after a pet, or they just get bored with it, so decide to abandon their furry companion.

Sadly, that's not all he did. He also took the chance to abandon his pet pup, leaving her with a note tied around her collar.

The shelter who took in the dog said that she's been checked over by a vet and may or may not be pregnant, but that she's in good health generally and is getting on well with workers and other pups. Let's hope she finds a more loving owner!
