Chanel is a five-month-old puppy, but somehow she lost the love of her family very quickly. On Wednesday, they dressed her up in her pink sweater, invited her into the car for a ride, and surrendered her to the overfilled and crowded Miami-Dade Animal Services.

“This poor little girl is heartbroken and defeated and just lays in her kennel all day,” the heartbreaking Facebook description read on Urgent Dogs and Cats of Miami where the plights of pets in need of homes are shared through social media.

    Those dispcable owners need to be dressed up and thrown in Prison and left there. Although that is too good for them. That poor baby does NOT deserve to be thrown away like that. Please find her a loving home that will love her forever.

    What a disgusting family and hope karma gets them.Five months old and they dump her back in a shelter? What the hell is wrong with people?Too busy on Twitter or Facebook to care for this dog? Please foster this poor, sad dog and others that are in similar situations too.

    There should be a law against mean and heartless people who did this. But then of course, they would be the ones to dump their dog in the woods

    I think she will get adopted fast since she is so young and past the worst of the puppy stage. She will just need to be housebroken. At least, I hope, she is adopted out fast, let’s keep our fingers crossed. Especially if we pass her story and picture around someone will want her.

    God bless you, little angel baby. I am praying hard that you find the happy loving home you so richly deserves. These heartless people don’t realize what they have given up! Fools!

    This precious baby is someone’s lifesaving Angel. Too bad people who abuse and dump animals couldn’t have that info branded on their forehead so the world would know and they would never be able to adopt a pet again…ever
