Sweet Pit Bull Found Tied To A ‘No Dogs’ Sign With A Sad Note

A pit bull was found on a walking trail in Folly Beach, South Carolina, tied up to a “No Dogs” sign with a sad note attached. It pleaded for someone to take the dog and give it a nice home.

“Hello! I’m Zanny. My owners could not keep me. I’m very friendly. I DON’T bite and I just need a home,” the note read.

Tanya Niketas and her son, Phin, happened to be walking by and saw the black and white pit mix panting in the sun. She immediately contacted the local rescue Pet Helpers to get the abandoned dog to safety.

The dog had no food or water, just the roll of tape they used to put up the sad note. Tanya found the dog to be incredibly well-mannered as she waited with him for rescuers to arrive. Zanny was super gentle with Phin and sat with them like the good boy that he is.

Though the dog’s name was Zanny, rescue workers quickly named him Folly after the place where he was saved. A veterinary exam found that the dog was in great shape other than a small rash on his stomach.

It was clear that the pit bull had been well taken care of up until he was abandoned, but it’s a good thing these people found him when they did on such a hot day.

Pet Helpers

Folly received some vaccinations, got dewormed, microchipped, and neutered, and he carried his energetic and positive outlook through it all. The dog loves everyone he meets and just wants to go on walks and play. 🙂

Pet Helpers

Folly will be ready for adoption once he has completely healed from his neutering. The shelter is in the process of taking the names of interested families and hoping to place him in a forever home within a few weeks.

An active family who would take him on walks and to the park would be ideal. But Folly is also a cuddle bug and wants to snuggle up with his owners at night. He deserves the best home after everything he’s been through. 🙂

If you’re interested in adopting Folly, you can fill out an application on the Pet Helpers website.
