He says that her fur was matted and knotted, and she finally stood there making eye contact with him, almost pleading.
Lionel picked the note out from underneath her collar, which was attached with a rubber band, thinking there might be a phone number or address from her owner somewhere so that he could reunite them.
But what the note said made him break down and cry on the spot.

The note read, “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’m very sorry about that, as I am sure he is too.”
“Please take me into your home. Please let me be a part of your family. Please love me.”
“I am a Goldendoodle, I’m 5 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 was able to get Siggy into his car, and he drove her home. He gave her some food and a bath.

Lionel said, “This lil girl found me, and thank God for that. I still shudder to think of others out there just like her, with or without a ‘note.'”

He then pleads in his post, “If you have committed to your best ability…PLEASE do not do not DO NOT abandon/leave/disown/un-own/’release’/’FREE’ your pets onto the streets.”
“Reach out and ask for help, and speak up if you are desperate, use the internet if you can, call a friend maybe.”
It turns out, Siggy has one happy ending, as his brother is adopting her!
