This is the heartbreaking moment a cyclist came across an abandoned and crying puppy on the side of the road.
As he cycled past he heard cries from the side of the road so he quickly spun around to investigate, as he grew closer and the cries got louder he slowed. He spotted a cardboard box which seemed to be the source of the crying.
The video of this rescue can be found at the bottom of this article.
As he slowly approached the puppy managed to free herself and then the beautiful puppy can be seen wagging her tail frantically pleading the cyclist, James McHugh’s not to leave her out there on her own.
James can then be seen tucking the puppy into his jacket and cycling off in the video posted on YouTube as part of an appeal to find her a new owner.
The good news? Shortly after posting the video James managed to find the dog a new owner – his next door neighbour.
Talking to Metro, James said:
“A neighbour actually saw the video and decided to adopt her. She has named her Luna and she is getting a whole load of love and I call in to see how she’s getting on.”
