The other day, Kylie Rose Engelhardt was enjoying a walk on the streets of Green Bay, Wisconsin, when she spotted a tiny dog tied to a fire hydrant. The woman initially thought the dog was waiting for her owner, but even so, she decided to investigate just to make sure the adorable creature is fine.

Unfortunately, as it later turned out, the dog was left there by her owner, with a backpack filled with some food and toys, and even treats. But trough the things, Engelhardt immediately spotted a note, and soon as she read it, she realized the dog whose name was Baby Girl was actually abandoned by her previous owner.

“I initially sat outside with her for an hour keeping her warm waiting for someone to come back but no one did,” Engelhardt wrote on Facebook. But after reading the heartbreaking note everything was clear for the Good Samaritan, so she has taken Baby Girl to the Wisconsin Humane Society.

But soon as shared online, photos of the 5-year-old mixed dog went viral sparking a lot of positive reactions from local residents with many of them willing to adopt Baby Girl.

Later, the Wisconsin Humane Society took Facebook to write a powerful message to the dog’s previous owner. As it turned out, the owner couldn’t afford to take care of her beloved dog anymore, due to some medical problems, so she was somehow forced to give up on her.

“First and foremost, we are so sorry you had to part with your best friend,” the organization wrote. “It’s evident just how much you loved her and we can see you did your best while struggling with your own medical complications and challenges of life.

“We see your love in the bag you carefully packed with all of her favorite things. We see your love in the way you secured her leash so she wouldn’t get hit by a car. We see your love in the way you placed her in the middle of a neighborhood where she’d be quickly found,” the letter reads. “We see your love in how happy and healthy Baby Girl looks. And we see your love in the note you left, pleading for someone to help her when you no longer could.”


The Wisconsin Humane Society also announced that Baby Girl is doing great and she will soon be place to adoption. However, at least 100 people have already showed interest in adopting this sweet dog.

“Rest assured that she’s safe, she’s getting tons of attention from our team, and she’s on track to find her next loving family very soon,” the rescue said. “She loves her walks, toys and performs an adorable ‘sit’ for treats. She’s a happy and affectionate pup.”
