An adorable pooch was left tied to a bench with a heart-breaking note urging whoever found him to 'take good care of him'.
The cute pup was found abandoned in a park in Mexico City, Mexico, with a note from his previous owner claiming they had no choice but to leave the dog as he was being abused by relatives.
The note, which is believed to have been written by a youngster judging by the handwriting, reads: "Please, I ask you to adopt this dog and take good care of him.
"Leaving my dog here hurts a lot, but I made the decision because my relatives abused him and it was painful to see him in that situation.
"So, if you read this and you feel moved, please adopt him and look after him. If not, please leave the letter here so another person can read it and adopt him. Thanks."
The note also explained that the dog was called Max.
Volunteers from animal charity Mascotas Coyoacan visited the park to collect Max, who was shaking and nervous around the strangers.
Eventually, a female volunteer was able to gain his trust and untied him from the bench.
He was taken in to be looked over where volunteers say he is doing well and is now even happy to let people pat him.
They added that as Max is still a puppy, they are hoping to find him a new forever home.
They have decided to change the dog's name from Max to Boston so that it can forget about its past life of abuse and start afresh.
Back in July, a black Labrador was found abandoned by its owner after 10 years, because he had 'not learnt how to be good'.
The elderly pooch was found tied to some railings outside Jasmil Kennels in Upchurch, Kent in July alongside a note that read: "Please can you take me in as my owner has abandoned me after 10 years because I have not learnt to be good so I have been returned here where he found me.
"Thank you for looking after me, sorry for the inconvenience."
Swale Borough Council Stray Dog Service started a search to try and track down the dog's owner.
In a post on Facebook at the time, the council wrote: "This elderly black Labrador was found tied up to railings at Jasmil Kennels this morning.
"We would very much like to speak to the owner to establish why the dog has been abandoned. No chip.
"If you recognise him and can be of any assistance, please contact the council in confidence or message this page. He will now be taken into our care."
