When you think about it, no animal is more dangerous than us people. Unfortunately, there are individuals out there whose hearts are made of stone and feel no compassion for the vulnerable creatures and treat them with utmost disrespect. Luckily, there are also those who understand how important animals are and love them to the moon and back. The latter often restores our faith in humanity.
This is the story of Radley, a tiny 8-week-old puppy who was discovered in a lady’s purse dangling from a charity shop in London, UK.
Having its tiny legs firmly tied with a rubber band, its life was in danger.
Radley, however, was lucky to be spotted by a passerby who was willing to get him to the place he knew will provide him with the much-needed help and medical care, so he dropped the purse in front of RSPCA, a large UK-based animal welfare organization.
When the staff discovered the purse, it came with a note attached to it, saying: “found this puppy.” No further explanation. People at RSPCA had no idea who could have been so cruel and do such a horrendous thing to a baby.
Radley did experience certain health issues such as digestive problems and trauma, but he was now feeling well. This border terrier cross is a little warrior who wouldn’t give up on fighting for his life.
Most shocking however is the puppy’s young, tender age.
“We have come across similar cases but it’s concerning to see how young the puppy was,” an RSPCA spokesperson said, adding: “Normally dogs have to stay with their mother until they are eight weeks old, so he could have easily died in the cold if he hadn’t been found.”
The pup is currently staying at the animal clinic where he has been given all the love he never felt before. He is way too young to be given for adoption just yet, but we hope that he will eventually end up with a loving family that will make his days fun and enjoyable.
Authorities are doing their best to track down the monster who dared to hurt a baby, and we pray for him to get what he deserves.
Being so young, Radley would probably easily forget the ordeal he had to go through and will very soon turn into a loving dog that trusts humans again.
His sweet face matches his bubbly personality, and we are sure he’ll bring joy in the family that will be lucky enough to welcome him.
