Dog Who Watched Her Family Adopt Another Pet At Shelter Gets New Home

A dog’s family came up with a fantastical reason on why they surrendered her to a shelter – she had gotten depressed after their other dog died and that they wanted a happier pet. But even more heartbreaking was when Zuzu lit up after she spotted her owners at the same shelter only to be passed on by. Video of the encounter was filmed by a volunteer.

In video, Zuzu was outside with shelter volunteers when she noticed her family. She jumped up and ran excitedly to the fence and then the exchange was filmed by volunteers who then posted it to Facebook. The video went viral and broke the hearts of dog lovers everywhere the planet.

But there'll be no more tears for Zuzu, because the two-year-old German shepherd mix has found a home. Diana Edwards who volunteers with Pet Adoption Fund told Inside Edition: “we had numerous inquiries about her.” Enter Russ and Judith Gallo. Their dog had just lost his companion and that they were trying to find another dog. Once they saw Zuzu’s viral video, they knew they were meant to possess her. Watch as Zuzu heads off to satisfy her new family in the video below.
