Meet Bear, a sad doggie no one adopts, who has been waiting for a loving forever home at a shelter for more than 2 and a half years now. The pooch was found as a stray in Flint, Michigan, and has been spending his lonely days at the Detroit Animal Welfare Group (DAWG) ever since.
“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 the years, those who were interested in taking him would change their minds at the last second. “We’ve taken him to hundreds of adoption events over the years, and he just gets overlooked every time.” This left Bear depressed and heartbroken.
LaBonty took a picture of the canine in the kennel. “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 sweet and loving dog, who just wants to be loved. The only thing is that he doesn’t get on well with other pets.
Do you think you can help Bear find a home?
UPDATE: It seems like the sad doggie is finally happy now. Bear found a loving forever home.
