A Missouri man was shocked to find a pit bull chained up in the basement of the house he was moving into.

The unnamed man called the Stray Rescue of St Louis after he found the pooch chained up with no food or water and surrounded by her own excrement.

According to the group, when the man called, he said: ‘I just bought a house and there is a pit bull chained up in the basement. I’m not sure how long it’s been down there.’

When rescuers arrived, they were told that a squatter had been staying at the home and had left behind garbage, debris and the dog, according to The Dodo.  

‘When we opened the door to the basement and shined our flashlight down, we saw a wagging tail,’ Natalie Thomson, the group’s communications director, told the website.

‘She was nearly choking herself as she was so excited to see us. When we freed her, she couldn’t stop jumping up and down and giving hugs.’

It is currently unclear who left the dog behind or why, but it is certain that the canine would not have survived for long.  

‘There was no food or water bowls that we could see,’ Thomson said. ‘She was not spayed and had no microchip.’
