A shocking story of one family’s neglect towards their pet now has a happier ending.
Zuzu, a German Shepherd mix, was found roaming the streets of Los Angeles and was taken to a shelter. After a short time, a family came in to find a new pet and Zuzu lit up with excitement. Turns out, it was her old family:
Rather than take her home, though, they ignored her and looked around for a new pet to replace her. Talk about heartbreaking.
All was not lost, though. After word got out, Zuzu was moved to a no-kill shelter where she already has hundreds of inquiries to adopt her.
The previous owners left the shelter empty-handed and the county has said that they can refuse to let them adopt another dog if they’re found to be unsuitable owners.
