His name is ‘Bear’, a sad little dog that no one wants to adopt. He’s staying at the Detroit Animal Welfare Group (DAWG) alone, until a nice family comes to rescue him and take care of him
“He was about 7 months old and very emaciated”
“He stayed in foster care for a while, but then the foster had family who moved in, and they couldn’t keep him anymore.”
Kelley , director of DAWG, told The Dodo.
Bear loves kids and he’s very playful. Although he’s very social dog, there’s one problem with this nice little dog. He doesn’t get along with other animals.
When the dog was initially brought to the kennel, the shelter staff thought that he will be adopted instantly from a nice family.
“Our goal is to find him a home with no other pets, but that’s hard to do, We’ve taken him to hundreds of adoption events over the years, and he just gets overlooked every time,” said Kelly.
Most of the time people get a lot of interest in this dog, only to be rejected at the last minute.
The DAWG team took Bear and few other animals to the Bissell Pet Foundation’s Empty the Shelter event in Michigan. Sadly every animal they brought were adopted except Bear.
“He is depressed in the kennel, as most dogs get, especially after two years of being in a kennel,” LaBonty said. “He has an outdoor run, so he can go in and out, but after two years of staring at the same wall, over and over and over again, they start to get very depressed.”
This dog’s pictures are very cute and it is a surprise that no one wants to adopt him.
Kelly took a picture of him staying at his kennel with a sad face on him which then out of no where went viral over the Internet. Despite all the sad moments Bear had to face, Kelly is confident that he deserves a better life than this and he will be adopted one day.
“Bear is wonderful with people, He loves kids, he loves men and women. He’s very playful, and he loves to cuddle and get belly rubs. He knows his basic commands.”
“We did have one lady who drove an hour and a half to meet him, and she really, really liked him, and she said, ‘I think he’d be a great dog for our family, And it was a very good home for him — it was out in the country with a fenced yard and it was a family with kids. It was a perfect setup.”
“The kids decided that they didn’t want him, They wanted a different dog, He didn’t want to go back into the car to go back home”
“He came back to the shelter, and that’s when I took a picture of him”
“He is depressed in the kennel, as most dogs get, especially after two years of being in a kennel, He has an outdoor run, so he can go in and out, but after two years of staring at the same wall, over and over and over again, they start to get very depressed.”
“Mostly he just lays on his bed with his head down”
