It happened in Brooklyn when a Good Samaritan spotted a dog left tied to a tree with a sign reading ‘take me.” On Monday morning, Eric Maus had been walking dogs when he spotted Mamas, a seven-year-old pit bull, chained to a tree in Prospect Park.
According to the New York Post, the sign that hung from the tree stated,
“Take me. I’m a great dog. Don’t let my size scare you. I’m sweet.”
Of course, the dog lover couldn’t just walk away and when he asked the dog where her owner was, Mamas just looked at him quizzically as if to say, “I wish I knew. I’ve been waiting.” Maus and neighbors untied her from the tree and noticed she had been urinating blood, but were able to get the help of the Sean Casey Animal Rescue who is helping her and nursing her back to help.
Once she’s recuperated, the black and white – oh so adorable pooch, will be ready for a home where she will never again worry about being abandoned.
Many thanks to Eric and neighbors for being a hero to one of our four-legged friends in need of help.
