Puppy Found Alone in Las Vegas Airport With Gut-Wrenching Note From His Owner

This puppy’s owner, unfortunately, had no other choice but to leave him behind.

The three-month-old Chihuahua was found in a Las Vegas airport bathroom last weekend. A handwritten note was found along with the pup, identifying him as Chewy. Although animal abandonment is widely regarded as an act of cruelty, it soon became clear that the anonymous female owner “had NO other option”, as she had been a victim of domestic violence.

“My owner was in an abusive relationship and couldn’t afford me to get on the flight,” the note read. “She didn’t want to leave me with all her heart but she had 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.”

The owner ended by saying that she loves Chewy “so much” and asked that someone, please, love and take care of him.

Luckily, the McCarran International Airport employee who found the dog was also a volunteer at a local animal shelter. The Good Samaritan brought Chewy to Connor and Millie’s Dog Rescue and asked president and founder, Linda Gilliam, to take him in.

“My heart dropped to my knees,” Gilliam told The Dodo. “I didn’t hesitate to accept him and instructed my foster to immediately get him to an ER.”

As Chewy was recovering from his head injury, Connor and Millie’s Dog Rescue posted the abandoned pup’s story on their Facebook page. Within five days, the rescue group received almost 1,000 applications from people across the country that wanted to give Chewy a home.

Gilliam says she’ll give Chewy’s owner four weeks to claim him. If she doesn’t come forward within that time, the little white dog will go to another family in Las Vegas.

“A lot of people want to reunite the dog with his owner, but she has not come forward and I don’t really expect her to ever be in a position to ever come forward,” Gilliam said. “She did a very brave thing and hopefully she’ll see that he’s OK. He’ll have a great life.”

Connor and Millie’s Dog Rescue currently houses over 200 dogs with backstories not much different than Chewy’s.

“Consider adopting from local shelters and rescues,” Gilliam said. “They are great dogs that are being overlooked and didn’t get all the media attention. They all have a story. I have a whole rescue full of dogs with stories.”

Neverland Ranch is Back On The Market: Take A Look Around the Amusement Park

Situated in the Santa Ynez Valley of Santa Monica, California, the almost 3,000 acre plot of land upon which Neverland Ranch was constructed has recently been placed back on the market. Nowadays, the one-time residence of international pop sensation Michael Jackson is going by a new name: Sycamore Valley Ranch. Much of the estate is as it was during the 15 years Jackson called it his home, except for a few glaring differences – namely, the removal of the fun-fair rides that gave the home its whimsical name Neverland Ranch. The very last vestiges of where the carousel once spun are still visible as you go through the grounds. Read on for an in-depth view of the ranch.
