A two-month-old puppy named Okra had been adopted, and away he went to his new home; or at least that is what everyone assumed would happen, but a puppy’s life doesn’t always turn out as planned. Volunteers and staff at the Heartland Humane Society in Corvallis, Oregon, were heartbroken when the butt-wiggling, adorable puppy was returned to the shelter.
The previous adopters had been looking for a service dog, and it was to be their first dog; their trainer told them that Okra was too shy.
So there this cutie was – back in his shelter enclosure not understanding at all what just happened. Check out his brief video after having been returned to the shelter:
So sad didn’t even give him a chance prayers he finds the best loving home.
I don’t understand how anyone can build a puppy’s hopes, make him believe he has a home and a family, then return them to the shelterTikTok comments
So in the end however, Okra did find a home, and likely the awesome TikTok video helping the puppy’s plight to go viral made the difference. We are proud to add that (as of 16 hours ago), Okra was adopted.

If you have a special story to be told about a pet in need or something oh so heartwarming, please leave a message and let me know.
Many thanks to PetHelpful for helping with Okra’s story.
