People Kept Avoiding This Dog At The Adoption Event Because Of The Heartbreaking Reason

People Kept Avoiding This Dog At The Adoption Event Because Of The Heartbreaking Reason

The biggest dream of every dog is to have a warm home and someone who will truly love him for the rest of his life. Unfortunately, most canines are not lucky enough to experience this, and many of them have to settle for a shelter or, at best, a foster home.

Although each of our furry friends has a hard time in their own way, no one can understand the pain of dogs with special needs or those suffering from illness. In addition to having to endure all that misery, these poor beings usually have a much harder time finding a forever home. 

One Great Pyrenees from Minnesota knows best how this feels. Despite all the efforts from his foster mom to find him a home, people still kept avoiding him. 

The Burden Of His Sad Condition

The sad fate of four-year-old dog Olaf recently came into the public eye. His loving foster mom, who lives in Minnesota, has been trying to find him a forever home for a long time, but all her efforts were unsuccessful.

However, her latest attempt to present this dog to potential adopters was particularly heartbreaking. It truly demonstrated the burden that this poor being has to carry on his back. 

In the video she posted on her TikTok profile, @wilfredthedestroyer, this woman introduced Olaf and his sad life story to her followers. She wrote that after three months of fostering and no applications for Olaf, she decided to take him to an adoption event

Although she had hoped that day might be the lucky one for Olaf, all her hopes were dashed when they got there. 

As she explained, there were quite a few people who were interested in this Great Pyrenees.

Unfortunately, as soon as they found out about his sad condition, they would just turn their heads and walk away. It is this reality that simply broke this woman’s heart.

The video caption reveals that sad reality: “Olaf has a neurological condition that causes back leg weakness. He can walk, run & play – he’s just wobbly & struggles with stairs. This has made finding his forever family incredibly difficult. No one wants to large special needs dog.”

It’s not just sad that this dog can’t meet his happy ending because of his neurological condition. The fact that nobody wants him just because he is wobbly and struggles with stairs makes this story even more heartbreaking.

Many Hearts Cry

This video attracted a lot of attention in a very short time and became viral. At the same time, it made many hearts cry, and numerous reactions are the best reflection of that. 

Among many comments, we highlighted only a few of them. 

“He seems like the biggest best cuddle buddy 🥹🙏🤍 praying he finds his perfect loving forever home very soon🤍🤍🤍,” one user wrote. 

“I want him to come live with me and my Great Pyrenees, khaleesi,” another added. 

And, the third quipped: “Best of luck Olaf. I’m sure the perfect family will come along soon 🫶”

We hope that it will not remain only on comments, but that someone will truly show kindness and humanity and open their heart to this special dog.

Just like all other canines, dogs like Olaf also deserve to be loved – maybe even more.
