Dog depressed after being dumped by family

Young dog depressed after his adoptive family dumped him back at the shelter

Update: After the publication of this article, Stone was adopted!

A young dog, just two years of age, is depressed after his family dumped him back at the same shelter where they adopted him from in August. The boxer, named Stone, was surrendered to the Riverside County Animal Control – Riverside Shelter on November 1.

Late Tuesday, the Saving Riverside Shelter Dogs Facebook page writes:

Update: BACK AT SHELTER! Adopted 8/30 and redumped at shelter Nov 1, 2019.

✨ Stunning guy, currently kenneled with another dog in the adoptable section of the shelter. Very quiet and calm.

Undoubtedly Stone is confused about the sudden loss of his new family, and sad that he no longer is enjoying the comforts of a real home. You can help this depressed pup find a new, committed owner, by sharing this article.
