An elderly dog has been abandoned in the street alongside a heartbreaking note from his owner, which said that he had ran out of patience with him.
The black Labrador was found tied to the railings outside Jasmil Kennels in Upchurch, Kent, the United Kingdom, on the morning of July 6, 2020.
Along with the abandoned elderly black Labrador was a note, which explained why the owner had abandoned the dog after taking care of it for 10 straight years.
The note said:
Please can you take me in as my owner has abandoned me after 10 years because I have not learnt to be good so I have been returned here where he found me.
That is one bad reason to leave a dog in the streets just because of it acting like an adorable pooch.
The Swale Borough Council Stray Dog Service is not trying to track down the original owner of the black Labrador that was found tied to the railings outside Jasmil Kennels.
They are also trying to answer how someone could abandon their dog after taking care of it for a very long time.
A post that was made by the Swale Borough Council Stray Dog Service on Facebook, they said:
This elderly black Labrador was found tied up to railings at Jasmil Kennels this morning. We would very much like to speak to the owner to establish why the dog was the dog has been abandoned. No chip. If you recognise him and can be of any assistance, please contact the council in confidence or message this page. He will now be taken into our care.
The Swale Borough Council Stray Dog Service shared an update about the dog and said that they were able to get in contact with the owner.

They said in the post
Having fully investigated the elderly dog left abandoned on Monday, we were able to get in contact with his owner, and all is not what it first seemed. We are now taking appropriate action based on the situation and circumstances. We have also been in contact with members of the owners extended family, who know and love the dog. They had no knowledge of the owners plans and have asked to take the dog on so that it can live out the latter part of its life in a safe secure home, with people it knows. If home checks and the dogs reaction to them are positive, this is the kindest way forward for the dogs welfare. We would like to thank everyone for their offers of help and a home for this old boy.
Let’s all hope that the dog finds a home where he could get all the love that he deserves.
