Video Of Emaciated Dog Being Dumped.....

We all look at the horrendous stories on here and ask "how can someone do that." Well here's how.....

This is the moment a cruel owner abandoned his emaciated dog in north London tied to a drainpipe.

CCTV footage shows the owner dumping the four-year-old Staffordshire Bull Terrier at Wood Green Animal Shelters before walking away.

Honey is then seen attempting to follow the man, spinning and pulling to get away until a member of staff discovered her. When Shelter staff untied her they were shocked to discover Honey emaciated, shivering and terrified.

The dog weighed just 10kg - nearly half her ideal weight - and had sores on her back legs, suggesting she was kept outside without any bedding.

She has since been transferred to nearby Godmanchester Shelter. Manager of the shelter, Katie Wickins said: "Honey's weight loss and pressure sores have not developed overnight. It is unacceptable for anyone to allow their pet to suffer in this way."

The shelter released CCTV footage of Honey being abandoned on YouTube to highlight the increasing number of pets being dumped.
