Quincy Bui from Houston, caught in his home’s surveillance system an unknown man approaching his home. The man parked his truck right outside Bui’s home, walked towards the backyard carrying a puppy under his arms and left a note on Bui’s front door. Police are now searching for the man who dumped a sick puppy in Bui’s backyard.

The note left at the home owner’s front door read as follows:
“My dog is in your backyard. I cannot afford her. My husband beats her and I can’t let her live with us. I love her too much. Her name is Ruben-May. Thank you.”

Ruben-May
Ruben-May

 

Thanks to the video, police learned the person abandoning the puppy is not the “distressed” woman from the note.

Ruben-May is suffering from eye and skin infections, she is losing her fur and is very sick. She was turned over to animal control and police have opened and investigation. Authorities hope to identify the man who abandoned the pup.

  1. I don’t suppose it occured to anyone that it could be a gay couple and in fact the man seen on video could have a husband? I assure you, as a retired divorce lawyer in a country where same sex marriage has been legal for many years (Canada), their marriages have exactly the same problems heterosexual marriages do, including domestic violence. I would rather see someone leave an animal where it can get help than leave it in an abusive situation or abandon it where help is not available. Don’t be so quick to condemn people. You do not know what their situation is.

  4. Ruben-May (now Minnie) was adopted a few days after this story was aired. She is doing much better and her new family love her to pieces. Check out BARC Houston’s Facebook page for pictures 🙂
