It’s always shocking to see the cruel ways some people abandon their pets. But thankfully, there are also kind people in the world willing to step up and help these discarded animals.
That was the case recently, after one couple stepped up to help a dog who had been heartbreakingly left behind by his old owners.
When April Parker recently moved into her new house, she found something shocking in the backyard: a 10-year-old pitbull, left behind by the previous homeowners and tied up to a tree.
The dog, named Molly, looked devastated, no doubt wondering where her owners went and why they left her behind.
But soon Molly knew she was in good hands as April gently reassured her. “You’re gonna get a new home,” April told the dog.
“We are going to make her life so good,” she wrote in the TikTok caption. “She will never be left all alone tied to a tree.”
@geaux75 The people that sold our house to us left behind their 10yr old dog they had since it was a puppy. I was so stressed we wouldnt get the house and something bad would happeb to her. We are going to maje her life so good. She will never be left all alone tied to a tree. 😭😢@roodytoots ♬ Running Up That Hill (A Deal With God) [2018 Remaster] – Kate Bush
The video was viewed over 32 million times on TikTok. In a follow up video, April explained that the owners left Molly to them in the home contract: “We couldn’t believe someone would just treat her like property,” April wrote.
“They just didn’t want her. They wanted their beehive and tractor but not her or the cat,” she wrote. April later found the cat, who was so skittish that it took time to earn her trust.
April has shared many more videos of Molly’s progress in her new home. Molly is scared of thunder — possibly due to her being left outside so long — and is an “inside dog” now.

The owners also gave Molly a much-needed bath, brought her in a car ride to get a treat, and she’s been receiving many gifts from her fans.
Molly is living her best life — and even the cat is starting to warm up to the couple.
