Dog Left On The Side Of The Road In A Doghouse Patiently Awaited Assistance

Despite being partially hidden in a roadside drainage ditch, however, the salmon pink kennel was hard to miss.
It was placed in a back road area surrounded by farmland in California, where the wooden structure was set up. The leash was still in place and a nervous brindle dog was huddled inside, waiting for a car to pass.
Luckily, a wary neighbor found the little pink shack earlier this month and called the police to report the dog. The officer who responded took the dog to the Santa Cruz County Animal Shelter (SCCAS), in which the pup was clearly grateful to be safe.
Staff at the shelter recognized the dog as Pebbles, but when police tracked down his owner, they found that Pebbles was left behind when the owner became homeless a year earlier.
No doubt Pebbles and its former owner had a rough time, but thanks to the police’s involvement in the case, the stray dog now has a place to call home.
The 9-year-old dog, who is currently offered for adoption and looking for a family to spend the rest of its life with, is being praised by everyone who knows it. “I met Pebbles and she is the most adorable puppy with beautiful soulful eyes,” Maria Chomentowski wrote on Facebook.
Robin Gabriel, another Pebbles fan, wrote on Facebook that Pebbles was “even more charming and sweet in person, a gorgeous brown tabby.”
Although Pebbles has a brighter future waiting for it, SCCAS wants to assure other dog owners who are struggling to care for their pets that there are other options. The Santa Cruz County Animal Shelter (SCCAS) stated on Facebook that it is an open-door shelter and accepts any animal without restriction.
Abandoning an animal is illegal and can cause unnecessary suffering to the victim. If you have pets you no longer want, please donate them to the shelter.
