Shelter Dog Tasted Happiness Only To Have It Taken Away


A gentle soul named Kelly yearned for affection but was ensnared by a life of sorrow. Her former owner, a callous breeder, exploited her relentlessly before abandoning her when she ceased to be profitable. Alone and famished, Kelly roamed the urban wilderness, longing for a gesture of kindness. As she navigated the desolate avenues, she clung to the hope of being noticed and rescued. Despite enduring such severe neglect, Kelly preserved her belief in human compassion. Her life took a turn when the Humane Society of Broward County in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, intervened.

Upon witnessing her emaciated and forsaken state, the team at the shelter was devastated. Kelly, with her lovable demeanor, quickly endeared herself to the staff. She thrived on the affection showered upon her by her new caretakers, who were eager to secure her a forever home where she could truly blossom.

The shelter broadcasted her story and a video on their social media platforms, showing a hopeful Kelly wagging her tail in her kennel. Her story touched a couple who were looking to adopt their first pet. They were captivated by Kelly and visited the shelter the following day, ready to welcome her into their lives. The staff was jubilant, believing Kelly had finally found her forever home.

On the adoption day, Kelly’s excitement was unmistakable. She joyously said goodbye to her shelter comrades. Her new family was thrilled to integrate her into their household, lavishing her with the love she deserved. Unfortunately, the happiness was fleeting. They soon realized one of them had a severe allergy to dogs. With great sorrow, they returned Kelly to the shelter. Kelly had only briefly savored happiness before it was abruptly revoked.

Back at the shelter, Kelly’s despair was evident. “Since being returned, Kelly has exhibited such a melancholic and anxious expression. She vocalizes her distress whenever we pass her kennel, and her eyes convey sheer desperation. It’s heart-wrenching to witness,” Susan Leonti, the digital marketing specialist at the Humane Society of Broward County, shared with Newsweek.

While Kelly appreciates the love from her shelter companions, her heart aches for a family to embrace her with unconditional love. She dreams of experiencing true love for the first time.

PUPDATE! Following the release of Kelly’s second video, she has found a permanent home. We are ecstatic for this darling dog and send her off with wishes of endless happiness and tail wags.
