“Cabezoncito apparently suffered an accident where he was disabled without being able to walk,” Moran told The Dodo.
When a group of young people found Cabezoncito there four years ago, they unstrapped him from the contraption and fed him. They thought the dog would be okay after that, but when they returned to the spot two weeks later, they found Cabezoncito tied up in the same spot. Droves of people walked past, and no one seemed to care. And Cabezoncito was very sick by this point, according to Moran.
This time, the young people refused to leave Cabezoncito there, so they took him and delivered him to Moran’s house, where she cares for street dogs, keeping the severely injured or paralyzed ones in baby cribs.
