Poor Dog Has Been Chained Up Outside Day And Night, Locals Decide Enough Is Enough

A Facebook post shows photos of a dog and tells the tale of his life. The poor dog started out in heartbreaking living conditions. Lucky for him, he had good neighbors.

For years, people never even realized there was a dog living behind a tall fence. The dog was chained up twenty-four hours per day, seven days per week in a yard that was nothing more than a cold, hard slab of cement. He got no love and no affection. He never got to play or have any fun.

Neighbors began to notice the poor dog. He was depressed and lonely. No one answered his cries. If he barked, he'd be punished with duct tape wound tightly around his muzzle.
No one came to help, despite the fact that the neighbors complained to the dog's owners and called the police multiple times. The neighbors couldn't take it anymore. When the dogs abusive, neglectful owners went out one day, they hopped the fence and stole the dog, saving him from a terrible fate.

The dog was given a name for the first time in his life: Alfie. With care and kindness, the family won over Alfie's trust. He became part of the family and spent out his remaining years in a home where he was loved and cherished.

Alfie spent the rest of his life with a doggie sibling, lots of toys, fun outings and a devoted owner. What a happy ending, thanks to people who were willing to take a risk to help him.

Alfie has the best life now!
