Puppy Abandoned At The Airport Had A Heartbreaking Note From His Owner, And It’ll Make You Cry

Meet Chewy, a 3-month-old Chihuahua who was found injured and left alone inside a Las Vegas airport. But before you judge his owner, just be aware that the doggie was left with the following heart-breaking note…

“Hi! I’m Chewy! My owner was in an abusive relationship and couldn’t afford me to get on the flight. She didn’t want to leave me with all her heart but she has NO other option. My ex-boyfriend kicked my dog when we were fighting and he has a big knot on his head. He probably needs a vet. I love Chewy sooo much — please love and take care of him.”

Luckily, one kind person soon found the doggie and took him to Connor and Millie’s Dog Rescue. That’s where the founder of the shelter, Lindia Gilliam, first learned Chewy’s story.

“My heart dropped to my knees,” Gilliam told The Dodo. “I didn’t hesitate to accept him and instructed my foster to immediately get him to an ER.”

Gilliam says this shows the difficult situation of pet owners in abusive relationships. “This is a very overlooked issue as a whole,” Gilliam said. “We also wanted to try and get the message to Chewy’s mom that she did a brave thing and that he is safe and will have a great life.”

“My heart dropped to my knees… I didn’t hesitate to accept him and… get him to an ER,” says the rescuer

Chewy the Chihuahua is doing very well and will be up for adoption soon

We hope for a bright future for the doggie and his brave mum who walked away from abuse

And who knows – maybe one day, when they’re both back on their feet, they will be reunited again

Poor baby. So glad, she made the brave choice of getting out of that abusive relationship and the very brave choice of getting her little baby help in an unconventional way. It must have been very difficult for her, especially not knowing what would come happen to her puppy. Hope she's in a safe place and the cutie fluffball quickly finds a forever home

You can tell from her handwriting she was pretty upset, stressed, heartbrokened, etc. Hope too she's ok now. I'm sure she already saw all posts about Chewie and knows he is fine and has tons of people asking to adopt him. Lets hope they can reunite some day.
