Man Ties 13lb Anchor To Dog’s Neck, Throws Him In River

One day, Audra Petraškienė from Lithuania saw a sight that she wishes no one ever has to see. What she saw shook her to her core, but she’s glad she saw it, as it helped save a dog’s life.

When Audra was driving along a riverside, she noticed a wet, shivering dog on the riverbank. She also saw something horrific – there was a metal weight tied to the dog’s neck. Audra immediately got out and rushed to the dog’s aid.

The dog had a makeshift anchor tied around his neck and was then thrown into the river. But the brave little dog, named Toriuk, fought and swam his way back to the riverbank. Fighting her tears, Audra took the dog back to the vet, where it was confirmed that the anchor weighed more than 13 pounds!
