Meet Tessa the doggie, who was found tied up in a field with a
‘I don’t want a dog’ note written by her new owner who dumped
her just days after taking the dog in. She used to belong to
Yvonne Radcliffe, a 76-year-old lady who recently moved to
Canada. She didn’t take her pooch with her worrying the doggie
would be too old to survive the flight. The woman left her
beloved dog to her neighbor whom she had known for 9 years.
Radcliffe’s son Paul Edwardson, 38, who found out about Tessa
after seeing a Facebook appeal, commented: “[The neighbor]
told her that he had always wanted a dog… that he was
“building a run for her” and was “so happy to have her”.
“When I rang my mum and told her [about Tessa], she
immediately started crying her eyes out. She kept repeating
“what has happened to my dog?”
The man added: “There has been no remorse from the neighbour
at all. There has to be much tougher punishments for this
kind of offence.
Luckily, Alan Webster, who runs the South Yorkshire Pet
Ambulance service, was fundraising at the car boot near the
field where Tessa was left that day. He rescued the poor
doggie and now she is being looked after by the animal rescue
