This Poor Pup's Former Family Showed Up To Her Shelter To Adopt A Different Dog

Usually, pet adoption stories are the kind of news that brighten your day and remind you that there’s still some good left in this world. Unfortunately, the most recent news in the realm of rescue dogs is about as heartbreaking as it gets. 

Meet Zuzu, a 2-year-old German Shepherd currently residing in the Downey Animal Care Center in California.

Shelter volunteers describe the pup as “beautiful and loving” and “amazing” — which is evident from her sweet profile photos on ShelterMe, a site dedicated to matching prospective pet owners with shelter pets. 

Unfortunately, Zuzu’s life hasn’t been easy, thus far. According to her former owners, she “cried” constantly after her father passed away. Eventually, the distressed doggo jumped the fence into a neighbor’s yard and the neighbors called animal control.

Shelter volunteers had previously assumed Zuzu was a stray — until her former owners showed up at the shelter and Zuzu couldn’t contain her excitement. 

“Doing dog intros we got interrupted by a distracted and overly excited Zuzu,” shelter volunteer Desi Lara wrote on Facebook. “With her fast wagging tail seeing her owners Zuzu lite up like a Christmas Tree. She looked like the happiest dog. Yeah, she’s going home.”

In a heartbreaking turn of events, though, Zuzu did not go home with her former family. In fact, they were at the shelter TO ADOPT ANOTHER DOG INSTEAD.

“Their reason was because she was crying and sad since her father passed away. She wasn’t a happy dog anymore,” Desi wrote. “Their solution for her unhappiness was just leaving her here. And [to] go get another dog.”

Obviously, people are outraged by poor Zuzu’s situation and calling for her former owners to be banned from taking another dog.

Most importantly, though, people are sharing the video to make sure Zuzu gets adopted by a deserving family.

“Let’s get her into the perfect home please,” Desi requested. 

While Zuzu’s story is heartbreaking, we should be glad that she’s being taken in by a shelter that will find her a good forever home. 

“[I was] honestly sad but glad,” Desit told Buzzfeed of Zuzu’s situation. “I knew the rescues who come to [the shelter] would find her a good home where she would be a family member.”

We can’t wait to see Zuzu go home to a family that loves and appreciates her! (h/t buzzfeed)

This Poor Dog Got One Of The Worst Haircuts We've Ever Seen And It's Hilarious

I’ve had and seen some pretty disastrous haircuts in my time. But this poor dog takes the biscuit. Twitter user Lindsay Martin recently decided to share the butchering that her dog went through after her mom told the groomer “to keep it long on the top.”

Here’s Wembley before his haircut…

And after…

Unsurprisingly, Martin isn’t very happy.

Especially because her mom won’t let her fix it…

Twitter seemed to love it, though.

Martin seems anything but pleased about what happened to poor Wembley.

But was quick to reassure people that he’s doing just fine and clarify that she still loves him, bad haircut or not.

And he does seem happy enough…

This Poor Guy Called Mike Pence Is Getting All Of Mike Pence's Hate Mail

Pop quiz time! What is the Twitter handle of Donald Trump’s soon-to-be vice president Mike Pence? Well, it’s not @MikePence, but plenty of people seem to think it is. In fact, @MikePence is owned by a liberal software developer of the same name, whereas the Mike Pence we all love to hate goes by @Mike_Pence. 

As you can imagine, this has led to a pretty hilarious situation where a software developer gets all the messages intended for a man who advocated for ‘conversion therapy’ to ‘cure’ homosexuals. Here’s a sample of what he’s had to put up with for the last year…

And this is all despite his biography clearly stating that anyone tweeting him probably has the wrong guy… 

Being a man who says he hates VP Pence to the very core, you can probably understand why Pence is so upset to share his name. 

At first, the software engineer tried to be polite and inform people that he isn’t the Mike Pence they think he is, but after Trump’s nomination and victory it all became too much. “I don’t generally waste the time to correct people,” he told NYMag back in July. 

So instead, he used his name as an opportunity to troll Trump supporters. “I get to troll conservatives a bit by pretending to be in a love affair with Donald Trump using my account,” Pence said. 

While he may not be enjoying the situation, everyone else finds it pretty hilarious.

While others said they were in a similar position.

And some just want him to replace the vice president entirely.
