A photo showing a dog being dragged by a black car on Shuiyueting Road in Haining, Zhejiang Province sparked fury after it was widely shared on social media on Monday morning, although the driver insisted he was unaware the dog was there.

The car's owner, also the owner of the dog, explained that the golden retriever, called Qiuqiu, was tied to the door and slept under the car that morning.

Later, his friend asked him to lend the car but he forgot to remind him that Qiuqiu was still tied on it.

He didn't discover Qiuqiu until he arrived at the intersection of Shuiyueting and Zhaojiayang roads, when he immediately held the injured dog in his arms and drove back.

Qiuqiu suffered several grazes and was later sent to a local pet clinic to receive treatment.

Some dog lovers also arrived at the scene and criticized the driver for his reckless behavior. The driver said he regretted his carelessness which caused injury to the dog.
