“Someone left this dog at the door of the shelter, inside a box, with a plush toy and a note,” Refugio Xollin wrote on Facebook. “The note was written by a kid and he explained his dad was always beating the dog and was planning to sell him. So, in such a state of despair, he left the dog here to save him.”

Here are Andrés emotional words!

“My name is Andrés and I am 12 years old,” the note originally written in Spanish, reads. “My mom and I decided to leave my dog in your hands, hiding it from my dad because he is thinking about selling him. But he mistreats and kicks him. One day he kicked him so hard that he hurt his tail. I hope you can help and take care of him. I left him a stuffed animal so he won’t forget me.”
