For this stray dog, abandoned on the street, only one heartbreaking photo was taken. The photo shows the poor dog, strapped to a contraption at a metro station in Lima, Peru. The straps are bound tightly around him and he can only lie there, totally helpless.
The dog, later named Cabezoncito, had a mysterious history but Sara Moran, the founder of Milagros Perrunos, a small shelter that cares for disabled dogs, believes Cabezoncito’s owner intentionally tied him up and left him there after he was badly injured. It seems the little dog was in a terrible accident.
A group of teenagers found Cabezoncito and unstrapped him. They gave him food and water. They figured he would be okay after that so they left him there. Peru is full of street dogs. But when they returned a few weeks later, the dog was strapped again to the contraption. And all these people just walked past him and did nothing!
This time, the teenagers unstrapped him and refused to leave him there. They brought Cabezoncito to Sara’s house. The locals knew that she did an amazing job caring for disabled dogs, keeping the most injured ones in little cribs.
