A Pit bull named Blue had the unthinkable to happen to him: his family left him behind. 🙁
Blue lived with his family in California for about a year, but when the family moved, they decided not to take Blue with them…
Blue was surrendered to Carlson Shelter in California, a shelter known as a high-kill facility.
He was so emotional that he did what anyone else could: he broke down in tears. Volunteers tried to offer him a treat or even just to smile, but he was so overwhelmed with feelings about what was happening, that he could only cry. Some say the photos show tears dripping from potential allergies, but I think we all know how the tears ended up on the face of this beautiful Pitbull.
Fortunately, volunteers from Saving Carson Shelter Dogs decided to help him by posting a video at the bottom of the article on 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. Blue only asked for 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 came out of the kennel and entered the home, he has been a brand new dog. As soon as Blue arrived at his new home, he took a bath and was taken for a walk, and felt at home and slept on the couch in the living room. When he is not sleeping or driving in a car with the windows down, his favorite thing is to look in the mirror.
Blue can now get on 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!
