When one Canadian man first spotted an abandoned suitcase while on a walk in a wooded area, he didn’t think anything of it. However, he knew something was very wrong when he got closer and heard whimpering and saw the suitcase move.
The kindhearted man grabbed the suitcase and immediately rushed home to get tools to break it open since it had been locked. “It was a hard-shelled suitcase in the middle of the woods in a ditch. The suitcase was double locked … the person purposely locked the suitcase and it had to be broken into,” said Eyal Lichtmann, CEO of the Richmond Animal Protection Society (RAPS) animal shelter.
Once at home, the man managed to carefully break the suitcase open and discovered a terrified Toy Poodle sitting in his own urine and feces. After being given some water and being cleaned up, the dog was brought to RAPS so he could be properly examined and cleaned. Surprisingly, the estimated six-year-old dog was dehydrated but otherwise in good shape. “He was very, very lucky that he was found,” Lichtmann said. “This is absolute cruelty … to do this to a beautiful little poodle, who is the friendliest dog in the world.”
The dog, who rescuers named Donut, is now safely resting in their care but eventually hope to find him the loving home he deserves.”He’s the friendliest dog you’ve ever seen,” Lichtmann said. “Now he wants to play the whole time, he loves licking everyone and is a great cuddler.”
