A three-month-old Chihuahua cross puppy has been found abandoned inside a bag left in an airport bathroom in Las Vegas. The dog was left with a terribly sad note explaining why his owner felt she had no choice but to leave him behind.
"Hi! I’m Chewy!" the handwritten note reads. "My owner was in an abusive relationship and couldn’t afford me to get on the flight. She didn’t want to leave me with all her heart but she has NO other option.
"My ex-boyfriend kicked my dog when we were fighting and he has a big knot on his head. He probably needs a vet. I love Chewy sooo much. Please love and take care of him."
Chewy is now being cared for by Connor and Millie's Dog Rescue, and has been inundated with offers of a new home. Thankfully, vets have confirmed he doesn't have any serious injuries, nor is there any sign he has been abused.
The rescue group has shared Chewy's pictures in the hope that his original owner will make contact, writing on Facebook, "Please share in hopes that his mom sees this that she was brave to leave and that he will have a great life."
