Shelter Dog Watches Her Former Family Arrive To Adopt A New Pooch

“With her fast-wagging tail seeing her owners, Zuzu lit up like a Christmas tree.”

What should have been a happy ending for a California shelter dog instead turned into heartbreak. And the devastation was felt around the world.

Video footage shows the 2-year-old German Shepherd barking and prancing when she spots her former owners arriving at her Los Angeles County shelter. But the family reportedly snubbed her because they wanted to adopt a different pet.

“With her fast wagging tail seeing her owners, Zuzu [lit] up like a Christmas Tree [sic]. She looked like the happiest dog. Yeah, she’s going home,” said shelter volunteer Desi Lara in a Facebook post Monday that detailed the video.

“But No. Talking to her owners they told me they were not here to reclaim her, they were getting another dog,” she continued in the post that’s since garnered thousands of views, reactions and shares.

Hopefully, the shelter didn't give them another animal. This breaks my heart. She's gonna get the BESTEST home yet. Those asses!

People should not be allowed to adopt another ever!

A pet like this is a commitment - not a temporary toy!

Anyone who turns in a pet to animal control should be barred from having a pet for at least 6 months. And then they should have to prove their circumstances were the reason and have improved!

These people should never be able to get another animal to a shelter, animals hearts can be broken and their spirits by cruel owners, and this family is crude.

How are they able to adopt another pet- these animals are nOT disposable. Scum. The dog is better off with other owners and I'm sure a good family will step up after reading this story. The dog will be better off.

Those people should never again be allowed to own a pet. They complained the dog was not happy because it's father had died. And they don't think what they did right in front of this dog made it happy?

I have a lot of adjectives that describe how I feel about these people, but I will not share them here. I am quite sure my thoughts and feelings are shared by tens of thousands, maybe millions, of like minded people. How disgusting for those people to do this.

The doggie deserves a forever home. Should be documented what they did and never be allowed to adopt . A disposable society people make me sick . That's why I love man's best friend. They are devoted to you for life and love unconditionally. The one positive thing in this situation at least they took the dog to a shelter where it could have a second chance instead of abandoning him on the streets.
