A Houston homeowner is releasing something caught on his surveillance camera in the hope that it helps track down a person who abandoned their dog in his yard.
Last week, Quincy Bui's cameras captured a man taking the dog out of his silver truck, then walking up to the home's front door with a note.
"My dog is in your backyard," the note read. "I cannot afford her. My husband beats her and I can't let her live with us. I love her too much. Her name is Ruben-May. Thank you."
Bui brought Ruben-May, who KHOU-TV reported was in bad shape at the time, to the local animal shelter where she remains waiting for a new home.
"I don't know what type of person would do this," Bui told the news station.

The news station reported that Bui gave the footage to police to try to find the owner.
