WATCH: Heartbreaking moment ‘saddest dog ever’ found tied by neck to gate in southern Spain

sad dog

THIS is the moment a traumatised dog was found tied by his neck to a gate in southern Spain. 


A selection of videos shared by animal group SOS Perreras de Los Barrios show the labrador not move an inch when it is freed from its noose.


Later videos show the pup in a kennel after being rescued but still showing signs of distress and of being traumitised.


The dog was rescued in the Los Barrios area in Cadiz.

Commenters on social media described the dog as ‘the saddest they have ever seen.’

“I still do not understand what the motive can be to be so miserable and leave a poor animal like this,” one said.

Another said: “How can anyone do this? How has this world become so cruel and selfish? The poor poor dog.”

Dozens have already offered to adopt the dog or donate to help feed and water it.

  1. The same thing is done to men, women and children, so don’t ask questions about cruelty. Glad the dog was freed, to describe the owner as an animal is an insult to all living creatures.
