Dog found with mysterious, sad note: ‘Mr. B was supposed to go to the pound’


Mr. B, the mysterious King Charles. (King 5)
Paul Wu found a small brown-and-black dog outside his Washington state home, which he told King 5 News was unusual. What’s even more mysterious — and heartbreaking — is the note that accompanied the abandoned pooch.

Wu found the letter and some money inside a bone-shaped container tied around the neck of the King Charles Cavalier Spaniel. The writer explained that his/her parents were divorcing and the dog was headed to the pound, King 5 News reports.

Please take care of Mr. B. He is a King Charles Cavalier Spaniel. Six years old. My parents got divorced and Mr. B was supposed to go to the pound. I think he has a better chance with you.  This is my birthday money for any of his care. He is used to kids, not other dogs.  He’s a good boy.  I know God will take care of Mr. B – Everyone loves him…especially me. Thank you.”

Mr. B has found a new home with Robert Kuchcinski, Wu’s co-worker. But both men still wonder where the dog came from.

“All I want to do is let this person know that we found him a good home.  That’s the whole message,” Wu said to King 5. Watch the report below.
