Dogs are great pets to have. They’re very loyal, and they’re also great companions. However, not a lot of people realize that owning dogs means added responsibility. You don’t just need to feed them, but you also have to let them exercise and give them love and attention.
It’s usually too late when people realize that dogs can be a lot of responsibility. They typically end up giving them to a shelter to be re-homed, or they abandon them and become strays. Some people are too ashamed to take them to shelter that they tie them to a post or a tree with a note.
A dog walker from Brooklyn named Eric Maus came across a big pit bull while he was out walking his client’s dogs named Gouda and Lily. He and the dogs were hiking through Prospect Park when he encountered the pit bull.
When he found the pit bull, her leash was tied to a tree. He looked around for the owner but had no luck finding anyone nearby. Eric finally realized that something was wrong. So, he decided to come near the pit bull. He was a little nervous, but Eric observed that the pit bull didn’t even move or become aggressive.
The pit bull just laid down the ground with her tongue out. Eric stated that the pit bull was very gentle and sweet. When he looked at the tree where the other end of the leash was tied, he found a note. It had the pit bull’s name written on it, which was Mamas, and it explained that it’s a very sweet and gentle dog that won’t harm anyone.
The note was asking for people to take Mamas home, and it also says not to be afraid of her. The letter confirmed Eric’s suspicion that the sweet dog was abandoned in the park. He had to do something, and he knew that the park isn’t a good place for a dog to be alone.
So, Eric posted a photo of Mamas on his social media account while asking for advice. Within a few minutes, people started responding to his post, and one person even met Eric in the park. Eric and the good samaritan eventually took Mamas to a waiting car where they were brought to Sean Casey Animal Rescue.
Thankfully, the animal rescue organization had a free kennel available for Mamas. Mamas will be examined by the veterinarian and will treat any health condition she may have. Once Mamas gets a clean bill of health, she will be ready to get adopted. Here’s a video showing how Eric rescued mamas. Thanks to him, Mamas has a chance to find her new forever home.
