Footage of a Pit Bull mix abandoned at an illegal dumping site in Kansas City, Missouri is absolutely heartbreaking. The dog, named Mojave, was seen by a codes enforcement officer 8 days after he was pushed from a car and left behind.


This poor Pittie chased after his humans until he could no longer keep up.

When animal control sent officers back to the scene, Mojave was still waiting for someone to return. He was cold and hungry, but after a visit to the vet, doctors determined he was otherwise in good health.

The KC Pet Project took the sweet boy into their rescue and almost immediately posted the good news on Facebook.

Investigators traced the car’s license plate to Mojave’s previous owner, who has been charged with animal abandonment, not having a proper pet license, allowing an animal to run at large, and neglecting to have a Pit Bull breed neutered.


Despite the tragic and upsetting circumstances, I think we can all agree that Mojave struck gold with his new family, and a new dog buddy to boot! Congrats, cutie!
