A black labrador was abandoned outside of a kennel near Kent, England. The dog was found chained up with a note that said the dog had been chained because he “had not learned to be good.”

According to the Swale Borough Council Stray Dog Facebook Page, “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.”

Swale Borough Council is working hard to track down the dog’s owner. The group posted on Facebook a photo of the dog with the caption, “The Swale Borough Council Stray Dog Service have been investigating an elderly dog that was left abandoned on Monday. The team 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 he can live out the latter part of his life in a safe secure home, with people he knows. If home checks and the dog’s reaction to them are positive, this is the kindest way forward for the dog’s welfare. We would like to thank everyone for their offers of help and a home for this old boy.”
