At first glance, seeing a dog in a sweater seems really touching and adorable. But instead of being adorable, the sight of a dog always wearing a Christmas sweater has brought tears to the eyes of people around the world. As the new year approaches, many people take the opportunity to reflect on the wonderful times spent with loved ones, family gatherings, and friends. But sadly, that didn’t happen in the case of a despondent dog who is still wearing a bright green Christmas sweater three months later and craving a foster home.
Bobby was a sad-faced, badly named little dog who was tragically ᴀᴇᴅed by a family who trusted him completely. His owner left him at the shelter and took away his collar and leash, leaving him in a ᴅɪʀᴇᴡʀᴇ horrible condition.
Volunteers at the Miami-Dade Animal Services Shelter were hopeful that despite Bobby’s ᴛʀᴜᴛɪ past, he would be lucky this Christmas. Staff were puzzled as to why a family would abandon such a beloved dog. Every time the shelter staff interacted with Bobby, the strangeness of the situation grew. Bobby was truly the sweetest dog. He loved being with people and had no problems.
In order to find Bobby a foster home, they dressed him up in a plush green sweater and posted a picture of him on the Internet. Even though Bobby’s picture went viral and many people became enthralled with his story, as the days went on and Christmas passed, there was still no family to give Bobby a loving home.
This furry situation caused a red cord at the shelter and placed him at the top of a list that included only puppies in foster care because his reality was so harsh. He came to realize he was in ᴅᴀɴɢ because of the ignorant greed of people who didn’t understand how special he was. As one internet user put it. ‘Bobby, I hope you find a place to live soon. You deserve every ounce of love out there”.
The only thing that gave Bobby color was still that cheery green sweater. He was frail, unable to lift his little head, and his eyes were ᴘᴥᴥ closed. But sometimes the spirit of Christmas moves too slowly, just like this poor dog.
It all seems to have been for naught. The system seemed to have already penetrated every edge of Bobby’s emotional state. From Bobby’s body language, the stress of shelter life, or “kennel stress,” as one person called it, seemed to be sinking in. Thankfully, a woman showed up at the shelter who wanted to foster Bobby, and joy spread throughout the shelter. Bobby had finally found the family he had always wanted. People on the Internet also commented, “I am so happy that such a beautiful woman came to the shelter to adopt Bobby. Perhaps his previous owner will not allow him to have any more pets. “
All of the puppy’s excitement was returned to his new human, who showered him with kisses and hugs and restored his trust in humans. We pray that this time his love will be accepted. We wish Bobby luck in overcoming his past and finding the love he deserves. Bobby has so much love to give and receive. And maybe more dogs can experience the joy of a late Christmas and enter into their lives.
