In a TikTok video, Jessica Anderson shared the poor animal's sad story and moved hundreds of thousands of viewers to tears.

In her clip, she said that someone left the dog right in front of her house, and that it was immediately clear that he had been "abused for quite some time."

The young woman and her husband went to Walmart with her husband to buy new blankets and toys for him. Even though the poor pooch was still traumatized he was clearly happy about the friendly treatment.

Later, Jessica took him to the vet. There they figured out where the scars all over his body were from: he was probably used in dog fights. He was also severely underweight.

According to Jessica, he probably would have been euthanized right away if he had been taken to an animal shelter, so the TikTok user decided to give the story a happy ending!

She adopted the dog and named him Oliver. Check out Jessica's heartwarming clip here:
