MODESTO (CBS13) – A security officer rescued a dog that had apparently been tied to a pole for hours in Modesto early Thursday morning.

The discovery was made near Elk Park. A security officer with Rank Investigation & Protection, Inc. showed up around 6:30 a.m. after someone reported seeing a dog tied to the pole.

As the officer noted, the red nose pit bull was very friendly and docile.

The officer looked around for the dog’s owner to no avail. A note found with the dog appears to reveal that the owner abandoned him.

The note apparently left by the owner.

“This is Polo. He is a full blood red nose pitbull! Very smart. I can’t keep. He needs a good home! Please take him,” the note reads.

The dog has since been taken to the security company’s office and was given food and water.
