A young dog is undoubtedly sad and confused tonight after being adopted and then returned all in the same day. According to the Saving Riverside Shelter Dogs Facebook page, two-year-old Hero lost his brand new home because his family decided that he was “too big” for their kids.

The page explains:

This boy was adopted this morning and then returned later the same day as they said he is too big for their kids. Currently housed in the adoptable section. Super unique looking! Please share for adopter!
