"I don't get tired of you. Please don't grow weary of being compassionate toward me."

~Rumi

This dog was kept by his owner in old abandoned leather tannery without food. His water bowl is an empty tuna can. He wallows in the trash and his own feces. When I approached him to take this picture he jumped up trying to get out of the vat as if begging me to take him home. It nearly broke my heart to leave him there.

    My heart is broken too I cannot even begin to fathom how anyone can be so cruel. You could always report the owners if he is still there.

    I bet someone would go rescue him if you let them know where this is....

    This photo was taken in Miraflores Mexico (in Baja). Sadly, this is pretty common there. A group of American ex-pats has formed a group to rescue the homeless dogs, have them vaccinated and spayed or neutered, and then adopted or released. Thanks to all for the concern.
