Owner reclaimed him.
For nine years, Opus lived with his family, but on Sunday every dog’s worst nightmare became reality. Opus was surrendered to the Carson Animal Shelter because his family is expecting a baby. He knew something was happening, but how to explain to a loyal friend he is no longer wanted? Despite what his eyes perceived when his owner patted him on the head, swapped out his leash and collar for a rope and was being led away, Opus refused give up those last shreds of hope.
“You can see his heart break with confusion as he tries desperately to get back to his dad and stop what’s happening,” a volunteer videoing the sad situation posted on Saving Carson Shelter Dogs Facebook.
Watch this senior’s video as he is led away by the officer. His owner pats Opus on the head, and then he is gone.
