Zuzu, a two-year-old German Shepard mix, became depressed after her canine companion died. It seems that her unsympathetic owners weren't of any consolation to the poor pup, and when Zuzu escaped the yard and was picked up by Animal Control and brought to the shelter well… what does a selfish, uncaring family do?
They go to the shelter to adopt a happier dog.
But Zuzu doesn’t know her family came to the shelter to take home another dog and when she spots her owners at the animal shelter, she lights up like a Christmas tree. She thinks they're there to take her home.
They pat her and speak sweetly through the fence, then walk away, leaving a desolate Zuzu behind.
