A heart-touching viral clip of a dog who appeared absolutely shattered after he was left at a shelter seems to have a happy ending as the pooch was able to find a forever home.
In a very brief clip that was posted on the Facebook page of Saving Carson Shelter Dogs’, a cute dog named AJ – a Labrador retriever & pit bull cross – was seen in a shelter lying onto the bed and looked totally distraught, shivering & crying as a person tried to soothe him.
The shelter wrote:
“Sweet AJ is beautiful, he has amazing energy and he was surrendered with his beautiful brother Toby. They did great walking on a leash next to each other when they came in but now they are confused and alone and missing each other and home. They need help.”
“AJ is 100 percent pure sweet, gentle, loving beauty, he loves other dogs and he is missing his brother, He is shutting down, he has a cold and he needs your help…”
As per the statement made by the shelter, the 2 dogs were abandoned after the owner was no longer able to afford taking care of them & the shelter staff was now hopeful that social media platform could assist them in finding the dogs the right family to love.
Since the video went viral too quickly, with more than 5 million people viewing it, comments started to flood in from pet lovers who were more than happy to help out and as a result, AJ was able to find himself a new house within a short period of time.
In the follow-up post, the shelter wrote: “This beauty touched the hearts of a lot of people and today he was lucky enough to take his freedom walk out of the shelter, even while he is struggling with a cold.
He was rescued, and we are hoping tomorrow that rescue will work with the different rescue that is saving his bonded brother Toby, so they can be reunited. Both have been seriously depressed since they were separated…Happy life sweet AJ.”
Here’s hoping the little cuties are having a far better life now and a massive well done to the hard-working shelters who help to find dogs like AJ and Toby brand new homes.
