Dog left tied to tree with note explaining why

An animal shelter in Connecticut is housing a pitbull left tied to a tree with a note explaining why it was abandoned.

The note read: "To whomever love dogs. She's an amazing dog. House trained. Brendal and bully. Aug. 12 she'll be 3 yrs. Human friendly. Dog friendly. All shots. And a sweet heart. Here name is Annabell. Couldn't afford her. Please help."

The dog was wearing a black collar with the note attached but had no tags or microchip when it was discovered on July 26 in Cranbury Park.

It is illegal to abandon a dog in Connecticut, reported the CT Post.

Anyone with information about the dog, should contact the shelter at 203-854-3240.

Messages poured in on Facebook about the pit bull:

"My heart goes out to the owner who did this even though I really do not approve of abandoning an animal like this."

"Whomever adopts her, I pray it's a loving forever home & they have the financial resources to give whatever she needs."
