Moment When A Dog Realizes Owners Abandoned Her In A Shelter

Date December 27, 2017

Sometimes, dogs seem to have an ability to read human thoughts. A lot of dog lovers admit that dogs have some kind of a sixth sense, which helps them understand human emotions. When you feel bad, a dog can show better support and compassion than most of the people.

Electra’s story

Unfortunately, not all dog owners realize that dogs can have feelings. They don’t understand that pups can listen, react to emotions, and care about people’s feelings. We are our dogs’ only family, and it’s sad when some humans simply don’t appreciate that.

In this video, a dog named Electra, realizes her family has just abandoned her. Feelings of emptiness, sadness can be read on her face. If you don’t think dogs can express their feelings, just take a look at this poor creature. Like other pets, who enter the shelter and then realize they no longer have a family, Electra looks betrayed. It seems like the poor pet just can’t understand how her family could abandon her without regret.

One of the shelter workers, Lolys Menchaka, who saw Electra first, said that she represents a sad reality of abandoned pets. She added:

Sometimes I would like to understand owners surrendering their animals and I don’t like to judge them, but when you see how the dogs come to the receiving department with their happy faces and they stand all proud I just can’t understand.

Happy ending

Thankfully, this story has a happy ending.  Electra found a new owner and a new home. This dog struggled many difficulties and now, she deserves to be happy with her new family.

All pet owners should remember that animals don't care whether we are rich or poor, they just love us the way we are, unconditionally and with all heart.
