Street dog repeatedly kicked by passers-by whom he followed, hoping to be adopted

This is heart-breaking, but there is a happy ending!

Scribble was a tiny, forlorn little street dog — one of countless homeless dogs in Manenberg, South Africa.

Scribble would wander the streets of Manenberg, following passers-by to catch their attention, hoping that some kind human would adopt him. But no one would.

One day, Sidewalk Specials — a Capetown non-profit that rescues dogs from abusive situations and off euthanasia lists, but does not have a shelter —  found Scribble limping in the streets, and took him for a checkup at a veterinary clinic, Vet Point.

The vet discovered that little Scribble’s limp was from being repeatedly kicked.

Sidewalk Specials convinced Hill’s Nutrition and TV station SABC 3 to feature Scribble on the Expresso Morning Show.

Happily, a family in Johannesburg saw Scribble and fell in love with him.

So Scribble boarded a plane to Johannesburg and met his forever family.

Who would kick this dog for any reason? Bastards. It’s a good thing the story had a happy ending or it would have ruined my day

I would definitely ruin the day of anyone I caught abusing an animal, domestic or wild.

Abuse goes on everywhere, however such a widespread disrespect of animals like the kind we see in China is cultural. I would hazard to guess the constant kicking is by the tribal people, not educated White South Africans.
Such a darling little guy. I don’t understand the heartlessness.
For those interested there is another outfit called ” Howl of a Dog” that rescues Dogs too in Eastern Europe, esp it seem in Romania. https://www.howlofadog.org/

Everywhere there is poverty, there is extra neglect of animals too.

Was that a lesbian “family” that adopted him? If so, this celebration is premature. Sexual perverts are known to be abusive to everyone around them.

Could have been Sisters in the family that adopted Scribbles. No need to jump to conclusions like that,especially that particular one. Like Dr. E said,not all homosexuals are perverts and not all are abusive to others. From your comment,however,we could easily expect that YOU are.

Some sexual perverts, yes. There is a myriad of ways to sin, sexual perversion is just one. All have sinned. If that’s the case with these people, showing kindness to this dog is at least partially redemptive
