A heartbreaking video shows a dog urgently trying to re-enter a car after its owner had abandoned it.
The terrified Staffordshire bull terrier jumping up at the car doors as its owner prepared to drive away without it in Stoke-on-Trent just days before Christmas, according to CCTV footage shared by the RSPCA.
The owner can be seen putting the dog’s bed on the ground and removing the Staffie’s tie before sprinting back to the car, the dog looking to be confused.
The little dog ran after its owner and began jumping up at the car doors, tail wagging as though the man was playing a game with it.
Even as he began driving away, the loyal dog did not give up and after the automobile, circling it as it tried to locate its owner.
The video was taken at the corner of Timor Grove and Pacific Road in Trentham, Stoke, at about 5 p.m. on December 17, according to StokeonTrent Live.

RSPCA investigator Natalie Perehovsky described the tragic scene on the CCTV tape as follows:
The video needs to be seen to be believed; it’s very horrific. It’s terrible to witness the poor puppy in such evident anguish jumping up at the car as it drives away.
I’m shocked as to how someone could do such a thing.
Natalie stated that the Staffie, now named Snoop, appears to have prior owners who were not the ones who abandoned him in the video.
She added, ”
The doctors checked his microchip, and we were able to track down two former owners in the Birmingham region, but we don’t believe either of them are the present owners, and therefore not the ones who abandoned the dog.
A guy can clearly be seen dropping the dog in the film, and there is another person in the driver’s seat. Anyone who recognizes the car, the man, or the dog should contact me immediately.
The dog has been given the name Snoop by the veterinary team, and he is in good health, estimated to be two years old. He’s a white Staffie with black markings, and he’s a sweet, friendly guy.
He’s presently being cared for at a private boarding kennels, where he’ll receive all of the attention he need while I conduct further research.
Anyone who recognizes the car, the dog, or the individuals in the video can contact me anonymously.
It’s hard to believe someone would abandon a dog like this at Christmas, but we’re grateful to the wonderful individuals who saw Snoop sitting sadly in his bed and immediately took him to the safety of a doctor.
The video is really upsetting; perhaps, Snoop will soon get the loving home he deserves!
