Daily Cute: From a Mess of Matts to Adorable Dog, Heartbreaking Rescue Unfolds

This poor, terrified dog was abandoned a year ago when his family left him behind when they moved. It’s heartbreaking to see him so scared, but it leads to a wonderful rescue and a start to a new life. He’s been given the name Theo, and he’s looking for a home.

Check back daily for more adorable animal videos.

People who abandon their animals are SCUM!!
I hope little Theo has found his new 'permanent' home by now where he will be truly loved.

It's a sad day when we're asked to make a "pledge,to always take your animal when you move."
Let's work towards a happier day and educate people with video's like Theo's.

After Theo was left by his owner for a year, did any of the neighbours try to alert someone or did they just watch Theo get worse and worse and then someone say him by accident? Because, if they tried to help him....they sure didn't try very hard.

Shame on them.
