Senior dog found abandoned in field with a heartbreaking note

Rescuers found a 12-year-old dog abandoned in a field with only a note and dog's belongings.

Employees at the South Yorkshire Pet Ambulance in England came across an unusual pile at 5 a.m. last week to find the creature, whose name is Tessa, tied up and soaking wet.

A neighbor reportedly gave a man the dog, then the man abandoned her in a field.

The situation was pretty heartbreaking as it was -- but the note they found on the scene was even more devastating.

"The dog 12-year-old Tessa is not my dog... My neighbor asked me if I would take charge of the dog as my neighbor planned a new life for herself in Canada. Reluctantly I said yes," the note read. "My neighbor was happy thinking Tessa is in good hands... But I don't need a dog."

It also listed details about Tessa, including the fact she likes coffee and watered milk.

In spite of her tragic situation, Tessa is now in good hands and waiting to be adopted.
