Being a dog owner comes with a specific set of responsibilities. Think about it, they are living beings that have needs that only we can provide.
Aside from feeding them, you also have to make sure that they are healthy. This means bringing them to a vet for their shots and medication if they are sick. And also, they should be given ample time and space for exercise.
Some people though are not meant to own dogs. They do not have the love and passion to offer the things mentioned above. And when this happens, the dogs suffer. Like this one dog who was always kept inside a cage.
One man bought a pit bull, and from the moment she was brought home, she was kept in a cage outside the house. There would be times when she wouldn’t even be given food or water. The neglected pup was never let out of the cage and she would stay there no matter what the weather was.
Rose, the pit bull, was bought just so that there will be a dog guarding the house. She wasn’t loved at all. One grad student saw this, and it broke her heart in a million pieces.
The student, Maddie, would pass by their house and she saw how sad Rose was. One day, she mustered enough courage to talk to the owner. She was already enraged by the owner’s neglect and she couldn’t take seeing the dog treated that way anymore. So she went up to the house and called the owner.
Maddie told him that Rose needed to be treated better. And she was also brave enough to threaten him. if he didn’t show the dog some love, she will find someone who will.
The man just shrugged Maddie off and went back inside his house. In the next couple of days, she saw that the man did not do anything. So she hatched a plan.
The great escape
One day, when she saw the man leave, Maddie went to the dog’s cage. She unlocked it and took Rose out. From up close, she saw that the situation was much worse than she thought.
The dog was very emaciated and weak, she even had to carry her to a vet. Rose had to be given some medication and after that, Maddie took her home. The broke grad student didn’t have much money to begin with, but she made sure that Rose had all the food she needed.
But aside from that, she had to make sure that she was fine and she would take her out for walks and played with her all the time. Maddie knew that the journey doesn’t end there. She still has to find a family that would take this previous dog.
