Dogs look at their family as their pack and would never abandon them. People need to look at dogs as members of the family and not as disposable objects when life changes. A loving 3-year-old German Shepherd was dumped by his family because they found out they were having a baby.
The young dog named Rocco was hunched over and shaking like a leaf in the back of a kennel at Dallas Animal Services. His family abandoned him there and he did not know why. His sad eyes looked up asking ‘why am I here?’ to anyone who walked by. A shelter can be very stressful with all the unfamiliar smells, noises, and people.
“The shelter is certainly not the environment for a dog like Rocco,” Pillaipakkam told The Dodo. “He was very timid and scared to get into the car. He even hid beneath the seat in the car. He was pacing a bit and seemed very stressed.”
“This is a giant step for Rocco who had completely shut down,” postedPillaipakkam to an Instagram page made just for Rocco.
The rescue will sort through all the applications and find the perfect forever home for Rocco. The sweet boy deserves a family that will never abandon him. His foster mom hopes that his story and Instagram page will inspire other people to adopt large breed dogs.
