A heartwrenching note attached to a stray dog left a man in tears after he found it on the side of the road. Lionel Vytialingam first noticed the small dog when he heard car horns blaring as he was buying food and looked up to see the tiny pup weaving its way in and out of traffic.
Lionel, who was shopping in Ipoh, Malaysia, jumped in his car and followed the dog, until he was close enough to approach the abandoned animal.
He noticed there was a soggy note attached to his collar with a rubber band.
However, he didn’t dare try and get it until he had earned the dog’s trust.
After about 10 minutes, the dog had enough courage to approach him.
Lionel carefully removed the note, which he hoped would contain the lonely pooch’s owner’s contact details or address.
Holding onto the dog’s “sticky knots of fur” as he did so, Lionel read what instead was a heartbreaking message.
It read: “Woof! Hi! My name is Siggy and I’m the most loving and attentive doggy you’ll ever see.
“My master is very sorry he had to leave me here with you, but he just can’t look after me anymore. I am very sorry about that as I’m sure he is too.
“Please take me into your home. Please let me be part of your family. Please love me.
“I am a goldendoodle, I am five years old this year and I have not been neutered. I am very nice, I haven’t bitten anyone, ever!

“I am a good guard dog who will sit in front of your door all day, and bark at anyone who comes to your gate. Until you tell me to stop. Or if I know the person very well. I can do some tricks too!
“I hope you’ll accept me. With love and some woof, Siggy.”
Lionel broke down in tears after reading the message, and decided to take the poor dog home.
There, he fed and bathed her, before drying her off and letting her sleep in a cosy bed he created under his sofa.

Lionel’s brother is now looking after Sammo, his previously adopted dog, as he didn’t get on too well with Siggy.
The man is now staying in temporary accommodation with the rescued stray.
Lionel said: “She had formed the most intense, most pleading eye contact with me from under her matted fringe. I unhooked the note, opened it up and read it right there crouched by the roadside. I broke down in tears.
“People should not bring home pets unless they’re ready for the commitment that it involves, and if ever they need to part with the pet, abandonment should never be even considered an option.
“This little girl (Siggy) found me, and thank God for that. I still shudder to think of others out there just like her, purebred or not, with or without a note.”
