The tragic story about Anubis has moved the entire world over the past few weeks.Born in Cairo, he was adopted by his family to be a guard dog on their property. The poor dog was constrained to his guard post all throughout the day and night, and so all he did was bark at every passerby.

But one day, his humans decided they'd had enough of his barking and carried out an inexplicably barbaric act: they cut off his muzzle.

In actual fact, the Declet family were only meant to be a temporary home for Anubis, but now it seems very likely that he will stay with them for good.His new mom, Kathy Declet, told Fox News:

The moment I saw him I'm like, 'I want this dog!' I want to make a difference in his life.

But before they can confirm anything, SNARR need to give Anubis a few more medical tests and get him microchipped.
