Dog Runs After Owners After Appearing To Be Abandoned

Bringing home a pet means that you accept responsibility for its well-being, happiness and fulfillment. Most pet owners take this pledge seriously – but sadly, there are some who don't. Such was the case for a poor pup from Medellín, Colombia. Strangers watched in horror as it was dumped like garbage outside of a busy street-side market.
But it's not the owners' cruel actions that are gaining attention online – it's the pup's heartbreaking response to being left on the side of the road. It takes a real heartless person to do something like this...
Cesar A. Bedoya, a journalist from Colombia, was the one who posted the tragic clip online. He watched in dread as the couple on the motorcycle in front of him dropped their puppy on the ground and tried to speed off. But, due to the traffic around the market, the dog was able to run after them and kept trying to jump on their lap.
Cesar was sure to identify the area in which this horrible event took place and included the license plate number in his video for authorities.
He wrote on Twitter:
"Allegedly, two people on a bike left a dog in the area of Robledo-Pilarica."
Cesar recorded as the dog weaved through dangerous traffic trying to get back to its owners. But, try as it might, the owners simply wouldn't allow the pup to get back on the bike. They pushed him off over and over again. Clearly, their mind was made up: they were going to be disgusting people and leave their dog hungry, scared and alone on the side of the road.
Sadly, Cesar couldn't get to the pup in time and had no idea if it made it out of the situation safely.
After posting the clip online, people were quick to share their own opinions. Some users couldn't believe their eyes while others tried to shed light on possibilities besides abandonment. No matter the reason, we should NEVER leave an animal in the middle of the road. Even if it's not our pet, we can take the time out of our day to ensure they're safe.
However, it's obvious the cruel owners here just didn't want to care for their dog anymore. We can only pray someone found this sweet pup and gave it the love it desperately craves.
Watch the heartbreaking chase for yourself in the video below. Our pets deserve the best. Not this type of horrible treatment.
