An eight-year-old Staffordshire bull terrier dog called Polly was abandoned tied to a poll in Bristol, England. Attached to the dog’s collar was a note explaining why her previous owners could no longer care for her. Luckily for the dog, Pat and Jake Fagg noticed the pet and decided to help.

The Faggs were enjoying their day at a café when they realized a dog had been left tied and unattended nearby. The day’s temperature was hot and the couple approached the dog to offer it some water. That was when they realized the dog had been abandoned.

The note left behind gave details of the dog, as name, age and breed, it also said Polly’s owners were elderly and could no longer care for her.

The Faggs didn’t want to leave the dog behind, and for that reason they took her home. Once at home, the couple tried calling various places trying to find her someone willing to rescue her, but everyone they spoke with informed them they were at full capacity and if Polly was dropped off, she would probably be euthanized if no one adopted her.

“Polly’s a lovely dog – a beautiful grey coat and well-fed,” Pat told The Bristol Post. “We have taken her to be checked out and she has been neutered but not micro-chipped.”

Fearing that no one would be interested in the dog, the Faggs decided to keep her while they find her a forever home where she will be appreciated and loved. The kind couple cannot keep Polly because they don’t spend much time at home and also because Pat is disabled.

Even though Polly is a sweet dog, the Faggs believe she will do best in a home where she will be the only pet.

“She seems a bit frightened around other dogs so we think she’d be better off in a home with no other pets,” said Pat.

    • Are you more concerned about the “English” used in this article, than the Poor wee staffies predicament ?

      I suggest you have your priorities wrong.

      Most of us come here for the Dog news and stories, not to critique the writers English usage…

  1. Sad isn’t it? Dog gets old and the owner discards them. I bet these same people put Grandma in a nursing home.
    My pets are over 10 years old. I’ve had them all of these years and would not dream of putting them out with the garbage

  2. Is my first time ever doing this comments but People have no fellings at all I just put my dog to sleep was 16 1/2 years old had a tumor, kidny stones, his liver, was loosing vision. But never cross my mind to do something like that, I miss him so much if u do that with an innocent animal please don’t have children
