A devastating video shows a pit bull crying as soon as she realized her owners had abandoned her at the animal shelter and might never come back. The 4-year-old dog, named Electra, can be seen depressed in the footage filmed at the Inland Valley Humane Society in Pomona, California.
Electra was left all alone at the shelter by her owners on May 17.
The expression on her face while she looked down on the ground from her cage, hopeless and completely lost, is bound to make every person with a heart feel emotional, even if they don’t like dogs.
Lolys Menchaka, who regularly helps the shelter by finding homeless animals new homes, shared Electra’s video on her Facebook profile with a heartfelt message.
“Electra represents the face of sadness and reality in the shelters,” she wrote. “Sometimes I would like to understand owners surrendering their animals and I don't like to judge them, but when you see how the dogs come to the receiving department with their happy faces and they stand all proud I just can't understand.”
“Electra is available now for public adoption. Hopefully she can leaves soon. Please share so people know she is there,” she added.
Menchaka requested everyone share the video and people could not help but fall in love with Electra. The clip soon went viral and the comment section blew up with heartfelt messages of support.
“This kills me. Those eyes. Shes so scared. The wagging tail. She's still wants to give love. Dogs are so selfless. Did you say she has been adopted?” asked one Facebook user.
Happily, the answer is yes, Electra has a new home. Though it may take the pit bull sometime to get over the heartbreak, she will definitely not feel lonely anymore.
