No One Wants To Adopt This Dog, And Shelter Staff Just Can’t Figure Out Why
This is Bear, a sad doggie who has been spending a really long time alone in a shelter!
Bear, who is two and a half years now, was brought to Detroit Animal Welfare Group (DAWG) when he was just 7 months old. That small pooch was found roaming in Flint, Michigan and since then, he’s been passing his days at the shelter.
“He was about 7 months old and very emaciated,” Kelley LaBonty, director of DAWG, told The Dodo. “He stayed in foster care for a while, but then the foster had family who moved in, and they couldn’t keep him anymore.”
Throughout these years, Bear has been taken to many adoption centers, but all the interested people changed their notion towards him in the last moments! “We’ve taken him to hundreds of adoption events over the years, and he just gets overlooked every time.”, says Kelly.
LaBonty who can’t see this canine sad and heartbroken tried to help him by posting his picture online. The photograph went quite viral on the social media platforms as it featured a depressed puppy.
“It went viral because it was a very sad picture… He is depressed in the kennel, as most dogs get, especially after two years of being in a kennel… Mostly he just lays on his bed with his head down.”
Bear is a very loving dog and has been waiting for a forever home for a very long time which seems like an eternity by now.
The only problem with Bear is that he doesn’t get along with other pets very well.
We hope this sad pooch finds a loving home and caring family really soon.
