In Wantagh, Long Island, a nine-year-old Mastiff mix seems to have given up on life. Tully lies in his kennel softly whimpering; it seems he still hasn't given up hope of finding the human who apparently abandoned him with no regard for his future welfare.
Tully was found on Dec. 10 tied to a fence with another dog outdoors in the cold overnight; no place for an older guy with some painful stiffness in his hind quarters.
Currently at the Hempstead Town Animal Shelter, a volunteer named Laura writes about this heartbroken soul:
" I fell in love with Tully today... He didn't come in in the best shape. It doesn't look like he had the best care. He was so grateful to be petted and to have someone sit quietly with him... When I left, he got up to follow me even though his back legs hurt. He is a good boy."
His tragic story has been shared nearly 2,500 times, yet no one has stepped up to give him another chance. Please share his story with your family, friends, and coworkers.
On the Facebook page of the Hempstead Town Animal Shelter, Tully has been described as a "love boat."
