The dog, Bonbon, was tied up and left in a garage at the time of its rescue. The dog’s owner left a note saying, “Please take good care of my dear one due to the move,” along with a drawing of a heart pierced by an arrow at the bottom.
Non-profit organisation Band for Animals in Asan shared the story on social media.
Netizens criticised the owner’s actions, with comments like, “If you can’t take responsibility, don’t raise a pet”, and questioned why the dog had been abandoned during the move.
“Bonbon has been in the shelter for three weeks and has yet to find a new family,” said the organisation.
It appealed to the public for a stable temporary home for Bonbon, highlighting the ongoing challenge that shelters face, including the weekly rounds of euthanasia of animals.
