I wanted to say save the people first, but then I remembered they were Floridians.

There is a special place in hell for people who would treat a loving pet like this. I'm an atheist, but I have to hold on to that belief.

That video brought tears to my eyes, but a rage in the pit of my stomach for the asswipe who left those dogs there!

Many years ago, was driving around with a buddy of mine. My friend was pretty backwoods and not all that bright. He asked if we could make an extra stop and then told me why.

He told me that he had seen an emaciated redbone hound at a house nearby and wanted to try to rescue it. I immediately agreed and when we got there I saw the dog tied to a short lead attached to a tree in the dirt and I was incensed and instantly felt rage that someone could let their dog or any creature under their care get into that state. My friend saw that and asked if I would just wait a minute while he went up to the house. A grizzled Appalachian stereotype came out to meet him and they talked for a moment or two while I was feeling like this was a time for justified violence and swift action instead of talk.

I overheard the owner tell my friend that he had fallen on hard times and that he wished he had been able to care for the dog better and he would be grateful if he could take the dog and give it a better life. The dog was in my car and started a new, good life with my dumb backwoods friend that day.

It was a really sweet dog and my buddy may have been kind of dumb, but he had a giant damn heart when it came to animals.

What sort of inhuman monster would do such a thing, shooting a vertical video?

Your friend doesn't seem that dumb.  Great story

The beginning of the story mentioned two dogs that needed rescue; there was no further mention about the other dog.

I was going to make a joke about the old farm upstate but really, nothing about this story is funny.

Mad props to the officer for her quick action and the rescue worker who took Liam in even though the shelter was at capacity.

Look for the helpers.

Our poor guy got left in an apartment before we adopted him, was down to 70 pounds and you could feel all of his ribs even with shelter staff doing their best.  I get the feeling they weren't supposed to have a dog because even after we tell.him to speak he's still hesitant.  Also guessing the people who had him argued a lot because if my wide and I even have to holler across the house he sometimes still gets antsy.
