A sweet, but shy dog named Turtle can’t seem to catch a break. The Brown County Humane Society Dog Shelter shared Turtle’s sad story of rejection, writing:

Turtle is back. This good boy can’t catch a break.
He was adopted yesterday but was returned this morning due to no fault of his own.
The other dog in the home didn’t like him…..

The short-time adopter appeared to like Turtle, just not enough to make things work. The shelter writes:

They said Turtle appears housebroken and was a joy to have around. Turtle got along well with the existing dog.
Please show Turtle to your Dachshund loving friends. He deserves better.
