Crying Shelter Dog Has the Best Life Now

It has been said that a picture is worth a thousand words, and in the case of one shelter dog that could not be truer. A sweet pit bull that found herself in the Charlotte Mecklenburg Animal Care and Control (also known as CMACC) was obviously not happy about her circumstances. So much so, that a volunteer named Sarah Sleime snapped a photo of the dog with what appeared to be tears running down her face in the North Carolina shelter. Sarah, who is a volunteer for the Greater Charlotte SPCA, couldn’t help but notice the dog as she sat in her kennel. Sarah says the pit bull was just sitting in her kennel, slumped over and clearly quite sad.

So, Sarah went to talk to the dog. She noticed that the seven year old dog had obviously just had a litter of puppies. However those puppies were not with her any longer. When Sarah bent down to talk to the dog, it looked like her eyes began to water with what looked like tears. While it is not known if dogs are capable of crying like humans are, one thing was certain: the dog was quite sad and also a little bit overweight, too. Shelter volunteers believe the dog was used to breed several litters of puppies over the course of her life, based on her condition.

There were no volunteers coming forward to adopt the dog, so Sarah did what so many of us do: she took a video of the dog and posted it to Facebook. She hit 700,000 views in the first day alone. Soon, the applications to adopt the dog (who they named Cinnamon) began pouring it. But it was Sarah’s friend Meghan Shelton who eventually adopted the dog. She met her new family at the shelter and immediately hit it off with Meghan and her children, who renamed her Rosie. The family slowly introduced Rosie to their current dog, also a pit bull, named Blu. The two hit it off immediately and have become the best of friends in their home.
