Authorities are looking for the man who pushed his dog into the lobby of Denver Animal Control located on West Bayard Ave. on Thursday and fled reported

The man jumped into his truck and the dog, desperate to be with his owner, escaped from the lobby and chased the man's car. The dog has been described as a brown and black German shepherd.

According to Lieutenant Aaron McSpadden, later in the day, the man returned and pushed the dog back into the lobby again.

Before anyone could catch the dog, he ran away again and was last seen running southward on Alameda and Plathe River Drive.

"This is about the saddest situation I have ever heard of," stated Stacy Vickers of Miami. "This poor dog is so distraught and will run to the end of the world for his master, and this heartless guy just pushes the dog into the county shelter and doesn't even stick around and give the receptionist the dog's name. What a despicable man."

If anyone has seen the dog, please call Denver Animal Control at (720)-337-1800. This is a dog who deserves a good home.

Authorities state the owner may face animal cruelty charges.
