Adopter returns Ophelia the 4-year-old Lab for being ‘too big’

Just three months ago, Ophelia was adopted from the Baldwin Park Animal Care Center in California. On Wednesday, the four-year-old Labrador retriever was returned because she was “too big and I want a smaller one,” the owner told the shelter staff.

Ophelia is spayed, black and needs a home. A shelter volunteer was nearly brought to tears.

“The way he carried her in was even worse. Someone please come give this poor terrified girl a real loving home so this never happens to her again! At 4-years-old, was she that much smaller 3 months ago?…”

Check out her video:
