There are always options available to people who are no longer able to take care of their pets. Even if you're unable to find them a new family yourself, you can always take them to a shelter or animal rescue where they have a chance at being adopted.

Sadly, however, there are lots of people who will simply walk away, abandoning their pets and leaving the animals in a very dangerous situation.

Take Boo for instance. When his owners moved out of their Detroit home, they walked out and left Boo behind. The poor dog didn't have any idea what to do.

So, he just sat and waited patiently with all the trash they'd left behind in the front yard. He waited for his family to come back and get him and they never did!

When a Detroit family packed up and moved recently, they left their pit bull behind. The poor dog was frightened and confused and he didn't know what to do.

So, he laid down in the front yard with all of the unwanted junk they'd left and waited patiently for them to return and pick him up.

'This picture absolutely breaks my heart, I am literally in tears. Meet Boo, this beautiful boy was left behind with the trash and belongings when the family moved out.

He stayed right by their stuff and never left it, confused and lonely. He was rescued by Mike Diesel after a neighbor contacted him because Boo had been discarded outside for over a week.

Mike spent 11 hours working to gain Boo's trust so he could rescue him. He is being cared for by Mike and the Detroit Youth and Dog Rescue (which he founded). 

Sadly, however his family never came back for him. Neighbors noticed the poor pup waiting patiently outside the house for days and decided to call animal control so they could come out and pick him up, but no one ever responded to their calls!

Finally, Mike Diesel of the Detroit Youth and Dog Rescue had to come to the rescue!

Take a look at Boo's journey after being rescued from the abandoned home in the video below!

Thank goodness for Mike Diesel of the Detroit Youth & Dog Rescue, who's fostering Boo until a loving forever home can be found for him!
