STOKE-ON-TRENT, England (WFLA) – There is now an active investigation after a dog was abandoned on the side of the road last week in the United Kingdom. 

The RSPCA released the heartbreaking footage on Christmas Eve. The RSPCA helps animals in England and Wales.

The black and white Staffordshire bull terrier type dog was left with just a dog bed. The man is then seen on the video trying to run back to his car and drive away while the dog jumps up at the car’s window.

A passer-by found the dog sitting in his bed and took him to a vet who called the RSPCA.

The story is being shared around the world to help catch person responsible.

Hundreds of people have offered to give the dog a home.
