Woman Was Shocked To See A Wet Dog With Makeshift Anchor Around His Neck

Audra Petraškienė was driving on a quiet street along a river near her home in Lithuania when she spotted a dog by the side of the road. The dog was sitting all alone, wet and shivering.

Audra stopped to see what was going on, and that’s when she noticed a makeshift anchor around the dog neck. He had an iron cube attached to his collar with a metal clasp.

It was clear that someone had trapped him and tried to drown him, but the dog had somehow pulled himself out of the water. He was shivering and looked confused when Audra approached him.

“Apparently, somebody put a heavy metal item on his neck and dropped him in the river to drown,” Petraškienė’s daughter, Andra, told The Dodo. “The dog was scared and shaking from cold as well.”

Audra then took the dog home and removed the metal and dirt from his neck and his waterlogged coat. After that, she took him to the veterinarian for a checkup. Thankfully, he was in good health, and he’s now recovering under Petraškienė’s care.

She rushed to save the dog, but she didn’t forget to capture her rescue on camera. Watch the video her rescue here:

Shelter director Monika Mužaitė said it appeared someone had tried to kill the dog “in the most extreme way”, calling it a “sadistic” act of cruelty.

The poor pup is now in the care of VšĮ “Vyšnių sodas”, a rescue organization, while his case is under investigation.

We are happy to know the pup is now in good hands and is receiving care and love that he deserves. Thank you for helping a pup in need of some love. You are a wonderful woman!
