Shelter dog for adoption via video clip? A dog who was not treated well by her owners found a new loving home. A sad and emotional video of a shelter dog named Maya helped her find a new home after the clip went viral.
Maya did not have a great start to her life. The Labrador Mix was adopted by a family two years back. But the family was not kind to the dog. Also, when the owners decided they no longer wanted the dog, they left the pooch at a shelter. It happens to be in one of the most insensitive ways you would ever come across.
New Shelter Dog for Adoption Caught on Camera
Someone captured the moments on camera when Maya’s owner was dragging her to a high-kill Texas shelter while there was a rope tied around the neck and legs of the canine. The woman was yelling at the new shelter dog for adoption to get inside the shelter, while the dog was trying her best to resist.
It seemed that Maya knew that she was going to be left behind. So as soon as the entrance of the shelter came close, the pooch dug her front paws on the ground and started pulling back. Eventually, the owner had to pick the dog up to get her inside the shelter.
Once the video was posted online, it quickly received virtually a gazillion shares. People could not believe how badly the animal was being treated. Fortunately for Maya, a New York organization called Rescue Dogs Rock, also noticed the video of the poor animal and decided to rescue her.
Adopted Labrador Arrived to New York
When Maya arrived in New York, she was scared to be in the company of humans. She needed to be treated with a lot of kindness. And that’s exactly what she got from her new handlers.
Maya spent some time with a foster family in New York. After that, she got adopted by a loving family. Her new name is Ella, and she seems to be the world’s happiest dog these days.
