One morning, while taking a walk, locals in a peaceful town in Massachusetts stumbled upon an unexpected scene – a dog inside his crate, deserted on the roadside.
As per the Hingham Police Department, the Maltese, who was just 2 years old, had been abandoned with his leash, blanket, food, jacket, and complete collection of playthings. It seemed that the dog had not been left there for more than an hour as he was found promptly and rescued from the cold weather after being freed from the crate.

The dog was discovered on a serene residential street, implying that the person who left him there intended for him to be found by the right people. The Animal Rescue League of Boston (ARL) took in the dog, who appeared to be in great health after being examined by veterinarians. The dog was evidently very grateful to his rescuers for rescuing him from the rain and enjoys spending time with the staff at the shelter.
“Volunteers and staff have noticed the dog’s friendly nature… and how he relishes his small treats,” as mentioned on the ARL website.
The dog does not have a microchip and was not carrying any identification, and the authorities are currently probing the situation.
“Our current endeavor is to investigate the circumstances, which includes finding the owner,” stated the Hingham Police Department on their Facebook page. “If the need for adoption arises in the future, we will provide all relevant updates.”
Currently, the dog will remain under the care of ARL, where he is content, fit, and safe from the cold Massachusetts streets.
If you have any information regarding this dog, you can reach out to the Hingham Police Department at (781) 749-1212 or ARL’s Law Enforcement Division at (617) 226-5610.
