This Dog Was Never Adopted By Anyone, And He Is Now Depressed In The Kennel


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.
