A recent dog video went viral for all of the wrong reasons, as a Texas family was filmed dropping off their husky on the side of the road — and the drive off as the dog chased the car from behind, confused as to what was going on. According to The El Paso Times, the suspect was identified as 68-year-old Luis Antonio Campos and was taken into custody, charged with animal cruelty for abandoning the dog. The pup, a 10-month-old husky, was picked up by a local animal rescue agency in El Paso. They were able to get the dog adopted in less than 24 hours.

Animal control put out a statement about the abandonment, which is a criminal offense, with a clear video of the individual leaving the dog on the side of the road in the desert, and the license plate in plain view. But within 24 hours a family came to claim the dog and give him a home.
