Once a dog ends up in a dog shelter, there’s no guarantee of a new home. But imagine being a Pit bull in such a situation–and imagine being a Pit bull dog in a high-kill facility. When a Pittie named Blue King was dropped off at Carson dog shelter by his owners, they pretty much sealed his fate. A high kill dog shelter is the worst place to be for a Pit bull dog. But they left him there anyway. Aside from his apparent lack of spirit, they also noticed that he was constantly crying.
Some speculated it was due to allergies, but who’s to say he’s not sad at the same time? Blue King’s family gave him up when they decided to move and determined he could not take him with them. As days passed, Blue King’s chance of adoption got slimmer. The volunteers took a photo of the Pit bull’s sad face and uploaded it on Facebook in hopes that someone might take him home. A woman named Jennifer McKay responded to the call.
