A puppy found abandoned in an armchair on the side of a Mississippi road wouldn’t leave the piece of furniture, hoping his owners would come back for him. The heartbreaking photos were shared by Sharon Norton, an animal control officer with the Brookhaven Police Department.

According to Sharon, she received a call to “check out this dog” sitting in an armchair on the side of a road in Brookhaven. WLBT reports that the call was placed by a local who saw a truck dumping the puppy, along with a TV and the chair, on Gaston Trail.

The post, which was accompanied by several photographs, said: “I get a message this morning to go check out this dog that’s in the chair, this is what I pulled up and seen.

“To the person that dumped this chair, your puppy was waiting for you to come back,” she wrote.

“Shame on you for doing this to this puppy… but one day karma will meet up with you.”

Sharon said that he was “slowly starving to death” because he was too afraid to leave the chair to find food.

Despite the puppy’s long vigil, holding out hope for his owner who’d never return, the presence of someone who actually cared immediately put him at ease.

“He was very happy when I picked him up and carried him to the animal control truck,” Norton said. “I could feel his tail hitting my back, wagging. He knows he’s safe now.”

The puppy is currently being cared for by the Brookhaven Animal Rescue League and will be put up for adoption once it has returned to full health.
