No doting dog owner wants to give up their pet – but sometimes they’re left with no other option.

A vet broke down in tears after coming across an abandoned dog on her way into work at Litchfield Hills Veterinary Hospital, in America.

It was only after she approached the terrified pit bull, named Fatty McFat, that she discovered a note from its owner – and what she read next broke her heart.

The note explains why her owner had to go to such an extreme length to rehome her beloved dog – and asks for her forgiveness for going about it this way.

It reads: “My name is Fatty McFat. I am aggressive only because I’m scared. My owner loves me very much, I am their life!

“My human went homeless and found out they have a disease and cannot care for me. Please don’t judge them. They tried to rehome me on many documented attempts, no one cared!

“Attempted the vet, they did not care! Call police and dog warden, did not care! I know my human loves me because they were and are the only one who gave every attempt to save me, love me, and pamper me.

“It is not fair for me to live in a car for two months and my human cries everyday that they are sorry and love me.

“I am very, very overly protective of my human and will bite anyone who comes near them or I feel is a threat. My human went homeless due to my biting.

“All my human wants is for me to have a chance, be treated with care, dignity and love no matter the outcome. My human is heartbroken and very sad it has come to this. No one would help – Fat McFat.”

Fatty McFat was sat inside his wire cage surrounded by his favourite blanket and toys as well as a water bowl when the team at Litchfield Hills Veterinary Hospital discovered him.

After he underwent a check up at the vets, he was transferred to The Simon Foundation, an animal rescue organisation dedicated to the preservation, rehabilitation, and adoption of dogs and cats.

A statement reads: “Fatty came to The Simon Foundation and stayed with us for several weeks. He started out very fearful, and lets face it grumpy.

“With patience and gentle encouragement, Fatty was soon showing off his skills, of sit, down, and paw. He became comfortable and calmed down.

“During this time, his mum was able to find a new job, a new home and always stayed in touch with us to check on her buddy.

“With everything in place, Fatty was reunited with his mum, which was a joyful experience, and he set off on a fresh start in a new home, and a new state.”

Pleased Fatty McFat was reunited with his owner, dog lovers took to Facebook to thank Litchfield Hills Veterinary Hospital and The Simon Foundation for their hard work.

One user said: “This is so very refreshing. When animals are in bad situations, we immediately decide that their human is horrible and we miss opportunities for education and love.

“Thank you all for showing the bigger picture. Now this boy has an amazing opportunity for a renewed life with his mum who loves him.”

Another user added: “This is a wonderful story! Thank you for focusing on reuniting this dog with his human vs attacking her for abandoning him! I wish that we could see more of this happening!”

A third user said: “Wow. That is amazing work and help for his mumma. Hope everything works for them both!”
