Heartbroken dog surrendered by family

Family returns dog adopted as a puppy to the same shelter – now he is heartbroken

A dog is heartbroken and confused after the family he has lived with since he was a puppy decided to surrender him back to the same shelter where he was originally adopted from. On Thursday, the Denham Springs Animal Shelter issued a plea to Facebook on behalf of Roxie Donut:

Roxie Donut was returned to us after spending years with his adoptive family by no fault of his own. They have had him since he was a puppy.I will skip the details.It doesn’t change the outcome .I am sure he is feeling confused and heartbroken as he is laying in this kennel scared & wondering what he did wrong.

The shelter is desperate to find Roxie Donut a new home and family as soon as possible “so he can get back to being happy and carefree.”

According to shelter staff, this homeless pup is good with cats, dogs and children.
