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:

    You do not “deserve” a buddy. You selfish SOB. You don’t return a life like a moldy piece of bread. Oh wait. Maybe she should trade your ass in for a real human. Just saying. You should never have another !!!!!

    She’s “too big and I want a smaller one,”? I hope to God they didn’t let this POS adopt another “smaller” dog! Dollars to Donuts the “smaller” dog will have something else wrong with it and be returned in a couple of weeks too. Whoever adopted her knew what size she was there is no excuse for this!

    People are monsters. How dare u treat a beautiful dog like that. Too Picky and selfish to take care of it. I am never baffled by how ignorant Low life humans are. Im tired of seeing and hearing stories like this. I only wish the dog gets a nice home very soon.
