Dog Found Tied To Street Pole With Saddest Note About His Past


A good Samaritan found a dog tied to a pole by his leash on a hot Virginia street corner.

The schnauzer-poodle mix was very confused and looked neglected, his hair was matted and dirty. He could not even move from the place where he had been left behind.

Fortunately, the good Samaritan called Richmond Animal Care and Control (RACC) to ask for help.

When the officers arrived at the sad scene, they were very grateful that they were informed about the pup.

Shortly after, Francis Boone, one of the officers, noticed that the dog had a small cardboard box hanging from the collar. It was a sad note that said:

“My name is Oreo. I’m over 10 years old. I have anxiety. My owner died. I’m really good. I need a home.”

The poor black dog was already an old doggy, probably because of that he was even more confused by everything that was happening to him.

Oreo was taken to the shelter and being there was very overwhelming for him. He was very nervous all the time. Also, he seemed to be not comfortable even though the shelter staff did everything possible to provide the best care to him.

Then, they noticed that Oreo seemed to be going blind and deaf. Things made more sense from that moment.

They did their best to give the older dog a cozy environment until he could find a home.

When Oreo was finally available for adoption, the staff began working on social media to find him a home. They shared his story, people were moved and he won a lot of attention, but nobody wanted to adopt him.

Without giving up, they kept trying to make Oreo find their happy ending. Then, one day Linda Snyder appeared in his life.

She said it would be a good idea to adopt Oreo and that he could enjoy his last years on her 5 acres in Fredericksburg.

So then, Snyder went to pick up Oreo with his new dog brother. Although Oreo probably could not see what was happening, he felt safer.
