There are so many heartbreaking videos and photos of bad people leaving their pets behind. We don’t usually cover such sad stories here at Bored Panda, unless our furry friends get the happy ending they deserve. Fortunately, this story is one of those with a happy ending.
A horrifying video of a disabled dog abandoned on the side of the road went viral earlier this year, outraging and disgusting millions of people. The video was filmed in the city of Sao Leopoldo in the southern Brazilian state of Rio Grande do Sul. The incident is believed to have happened six months ago.
In the shocking video, a white car is seen parked on a deserted street and a woman gets out and takes out a white dog with only three legs. After violently and brutally pushing the dog away, the cold-blooded woman drives away. Millions of people were moved to tears when they saw this horrific footage. This poor three-legged dog was abandoned twice on the same day earlier this year.
The brutal footage shows the abandoning the dog got.
Fortunately, the poor three-legged dog was identified just one day after the video was published. It turned out that an animal welfare organization called Patas Geurreras took the dog in and renamed him TinTin. It was later discovered that TinTin had been abandoned twice on the same day. The first time TinTin was abandoned, he was brought home after a woman found him on the street and thought he was lost. But his owner was so cold and inhuman that she abandoned him again. Millions of people were outraged when the video went viral.
Thankfully, the poor soul got taken by animal rescuers. His name is TinTin. When his story went viral a lot of people wanted to adopt him immediately.
Fortunately, someone else found him and took the poor guy to an animal shelter. Photos later shared on Twitter show TinTin being cared for by staff at Patas Guerreras. And that’s not all. The beautiful TinTin soon found new loving owners. The charity that took TinTin in said that the child was doing extremely well given the terrible conditions in which he was left. They also found that the disabled dog was treated with the love and care he deserved by his new owners. However, the rescuers were very careful about who they entrusted this loyal dog to.

To everyone’s relief, the police managed to find Tintin’s former owners. They confessed that they had abandoned the poor dog. Anderson Ribeiro, head of the Animal Protection Secretariat in Sao Leopoldo, passed the information to the police, who confirmed the investigation into animal cruelty and called witnesses to testify. The penalties for animal cruelty range from three months to one year in prison and a fine. Today he looks as happy and healthy as ever.

Fortunately TinTin looks as happy and healthy as ever. The beautiful boy has been spoiled by his new owners and seems to have finally found his forever home. Especially after it was announced that those who abandon TinTin risk going to jail.
