“Kids were throwing food out on the street, so the dog would run out onto the street,” Obregon told The Dodo. “Then neighbors saw some children tying a water hose around his neck.”
Obregon visited the neighborhood three times, but each time she couldn’t find the dog. Then she got the photo of the dog from the same resident who initially contacted her — this person thought the dog was dead as well.
“I started crying because I felt like I didn’t do enough,” Obregon said. “I felt like I wasn’t there on time to get to this dog before he ended up in this situation.”
