Distressing footage caught by a security camera at Stoke-on-Trent, England went viral after it was tweeted out by the The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals on December 24.


The video shows a man dropping off his Staffordshire Bull Terrier and its bed by the side of the road then jumping back in his car without the dog. The Staffie is clearly in distress and begs to be let back in the car, but the man eventually drives off.

Research shows that abandoned dogs go through the same type of distress a human would feel after losing a loved one. This could lead to health problems and eventually death in the streets or at a shelter.

Luckily, the Staffie was rescued by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) and named “Snoop” after Snoop Dogg, the rapper.

Snoop Dogg heard about the abandoned animal and said the dog could have a home with him back in Los Angeles. “There is always room for another dog in Casa de Snoop,” the rapper from Long Beach, California told The Daily Star. “If he really needed a home then he has one with us. But I don’t think there is going to be any shortage of loving homes after all the exposure he has got.”

According to Celebrity Pets, Snoop has owned up to 11 dogs at a time, including multiple pit bulls. He’s also an investor in Dog for Dog brand dog food, which donates a bag of food to a rescue shelter for every bag sold.

Although Snoop the Staffie has yet to be rehomed, things are looking up for the pooch. “At the moment he isn’t up for rehoming while our investigation into his abandonment is ongoing,” Rachel Butler of the RSPCA told People. “However, we have had scores of people wanting to rehome him so we are certain he will not be waiting long for a new home.”

The Free the Nipple movement is trying to remove the stigma on women's breasts by making it culturally acceptable and legal for women to go topless in public. But it turns out, Free the Nipple might be fighting on the wrong front and should be focusing on freeing the nipple in a place you'd never expect. Your own home.

In August, the Recording Academy hired their first female CEO, Deborah Dugan. Ten days before the Grammys, Dugan was placed on administrative leave for misconduct allegations after a female employee said Dugan was "abusive" and created a "toxic and intolerable" work environment. However, Dugan says she was actually removed from her position for complaining to human resources about sexual harassment, pay disparities, and conflicts of interest in the award show's nomination process.

Just five days before the Grammys, Dugan filed a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and her claims are many. Dugan says she was paid less than former CEO Neil Portnow. In 2018, Portnow received criticism for saying women need to "step up" when only two female acts won Grammys. Portnow decided to not renew his contract shortly after. Dugan says she was also asked to hire Portnow as a consultant for $750,000 a year, which she refused to do.
