He is heartbroken as no one ever picks him, so he has shut away & stopped eating

Dozer, a shelter Pit Bull, has always been the life of the shelter with his goofy grins and playful antics. But the poor dog somehow ended up being rejected for years. Gradually, Dozer’s anticipating smiles turned into depressing sobs, and soon, he stopped eating entirely.

The shelter workers were worried by Dozer’s numbing shutdown. Dozer felt so unwanted that nothing would motivate him to eat a morsel. In desperation, the workers took a photo of him with a sad message, and pleaded to animal lovers on social media to help him.

The shelter’s post quickly went viral as concerned dog lovers banded together to help Dozer find a family of his own. Within a period of 2 days, the shelter was flooded with a massive amount of calls and adoption applications!
