Dog Is In Tears After Family Leaves Him At High-Kill Shelter, Then A Hero Comes to Dry Them

A Pit Bull named Blue had the unthinkable to happen to him: his family left him behind.

Blue lived with a family in California for about a year, but when the family moved, they decided to not take Blue with them.

Blue was surrendered to Carlson Shelter in California, a shelter known as a high-kill facility.

He was so emotional he did what anyone else would have done: break down in tears. The volunteers tried to offer him a treat or even just to smile, but he was so overwhelmed with the emotion of what was going on, all he could do was cry. Some say the photographs show tears dripping from potential allergies, but I think we all know how tears ended up on this beautiful pit bull’s face.

Thankfully, volunteers from Saving Carson Shelter Dogs decided to help him by posting the video on the bottom of the article across Social media. The video was created and succeeded to gain attention in hopes that someone would take Blue home and give him a forever home!

You can see from the video that these great people were just trying to lend a hand. All Blue was looking for was help and a friend to spend the rest of his life with.

Blue ended up being best friends with Jennifer McKay. Jennifer visited not once, not twice, but three times, and took him home on the third time!

“He looked very sad and depressed,” McKay told The Dodo. “You could tell that every time someone walked by, it was like he was looking for them [the owners],” she said. “It’s like he knew he had been left there.” However when McKay visited a third time, Blue perked up and went straight to his future owner!

Ever since Blue has been out of the kennel and into a home, he has been a brand new dog. As soon as Blue got to his new home, he received a bath and was taken for a walk, and made himself right at home sleeping on the living room couch. When he’s not sleeping or riding in the car with the windows down, his favorite thing is looking at himself in the mirror.

Blue can now move ahead with his life, knowing he is in good hands.

Thank you to the millions of volunteers across the world who help animals in need, like Blue, find a forever home!

ADOPTED – moved to SAFE Album 02/10

ADOPTED – moved to SAFE Album 02/10This is BLUE KING. He was surrendered today and when we walked up to him we woke him and he immediately let out this painful whimper once he realized this was really happening. He looks like he's been crying with tears 🙁 The Video is not exciting, (and you might want to turn the sound down)but he is so hurt and sad and he just wants them to change their minds. This sweet, sensitive soul needs help fast. HE LOVES LITTLE KIDS< DOGS and even CATS! Anyone that will LOVE him.!! Please SHARE for his life, he needs a TEMPERAMENT TEST requested IN PERSON by an Interested Party before the Shelter will allow him to be saved. Without this Test being ordered he can be PTS at any time after his Available date. A FOSTER or Adopter would save him. Thanks!BLUE KING#A4492120 My name is BLUE KING and I'm an approximately 4 year old male Pit Bull. I am already neutered. I have been at the Carson Animal Care Center since 1/31. I will be available on 1/31. You can visit me at my temporary home at CRECEIVING.My former family who owned me for more than a year had to give me up because they were moving. But they said that I spend most of my time outdoors, but it's not ideal. I seem to be good with small children. I am housetrained. I am learning how to walk on a leash. I seem to get along well with dogs and cats. http://www.petharbor.com/pet.asp?uaid=LACO1.A4492120Carson Shelter, Gardena, California216 Victoria Street, Gardena, California310.523.9566, M-TH 12pm – 7pm, F-SU – 10am – 5pm💚💚 INTERESTED IN FOSTERING?
