In a heartbreaking video, volunteers and staff have been brought to tears as a sweet dog continues to display cage stress and jumps in place for hours at a time. Sadly, Robert has been at Miami-Dade Animal Services since February.

“He is slowly breaking down each day and is in grave danger of being killed,” a volunteer writes on the Urgent Dogs and Cats of Miami Facebook page. His behavior is like night and day once he is out of the kennel and in the loving arms of volunteers. You wouldn’t even think it’s the same dog.”

Check out Robert’s video and watch until the end:

(A1936588) I am a male black and white American Bulldog mix.

The shelter staff think I am about 2 years old and I weigh 60 pounds.

I was found as a stray and I may be available for adoption on 02/25/2018. — at Miami-Dade Animal Services.

    Please, rescue, get this dog and help him get adopted to a loving home. He has so much love to give and just needs guidance with his behavior. What an adorable dog who will give someone a wonderful addition to their family.
