Dog Left Behind With Owners’ Trash Huddles On Discarded Recliner For Warmth

t’s a heartbreaking story we’ve all heard far too many times. An innocent dog abandoned and forgotten on the cold city streets, waiting faithfully for owners who will never return.

The pup, named Ollie-Loo by his rescuers, was discovered sitting on the curb amid the boxes and discarded furniture his owners left behind. He was curled up tightly on their old recliner, trying to keep warm.

A neighbor reported that they returned once after initially abandoning the young Pit Bull mix in order to retrieve a smaller pup. They once again left poor Ollie behind.

He was huddled against the broken-down recliner seeking out any warmth he could find against the snow and freezing air.
