    what a beautiful story and kudos to the person to help take care of the dog until he had a chance to get her back with him. you can tell the dog obviously bonded with him and knew she was being saved by him since she was so happy to see him again.

    It's time for that famous moronic cliche again, 'This video has restored my faith in humanity.'
    Because, during my day, I go around assessing just how much faith I have, in 'Humanity'... and all these first-world hyper-privileged kids who somehow completely lost their faith in 'Humanity'. You know, because sometimes people don't have their exact set of values and therefore are bad people...

    When I was 9 years old I saw a cat was so sick on the street and I pick her up I put her on the bush and hide her cause if my mother knew that she would kill me so I hide her and take care of her she was old I gave her food morning evening night I cleaned her but then she ran away

    Yes it is evil. And the original owners who left her there should have given her to an animal shelter or better yet another family who would love her. But we can't take back the past and even thinking about killing the orignal owners ect. Is just about more evil then leaving a dog stranded. Think about not only what the dog had to go through but what the owners did too. They could have had just as much as a harder life then that dog. I'm not saying this acceptable but lots of people are looking at the dogs perspective and not the original owners. The owners could have had something going on in there life's to make them bitter. And you can disagree with me if you want but i dont want to have to deal with people bugging me with hateful words every min hour or day. So if you have nothing nice to say back off.

    I don't understand why people treat animals so cruelly. If you don't want a pet and don't care about animals, don't get a pet. You don't have to hurt them. Animals are part of the family. You want one, you care for it and love it - always and regardless. Thank you to this kind man who rescued her.

    It's bad enough that this dog was abandoned in the first place, but what kind of soulless psychopath can see an animal that sick and starved and think I don't like it being on the boat let's abandon it again?! I hope those people get a very prolific form of gonorrhea that doesn't ever go away.

    I truly dispise people who mistreat dogs or any kinda animal they make me sick.Getting to where i cannot tolerate people in general and would much rather chill at home with my dog than going out socializing with people..Out here where i live animal cruelty is getting worse and worse just seen on the news the other day and this is no joke a man tied his dog to the back of a pickup truck and drug it down the road until it died..Seriously i will find the link for the local news for anyone doesnt believe. Couple weeks ago another man tried to throw his dog in the river at a park while it was locked in kennel to get rid of it..Luckly some one seen it happen actually jumped in pulled the dog out and had to resuscitate it.Not sure how but the dog pulled through. Point is people make me sick and there is evil in the world.I live kinda out in the country and litteraly everywhere you go out here you see folks have dogs chained to a tree or locked in a small kennel.Whats the fckn point of getting a dog just to chain it to a tree in your back yard and forget about it????Im tellin ya im to the point i wanna start kickin doors in and slappin the fuck out folks everytime i see sorry but people disgust me
