Because they are expecting a child, a family leave their loyal dog at a shelter.

Dogs regard their family as part of their pack, and they would never abandon them. When life changes, people must consider dogs as family members rather than disposable objects. Because his family found out they were expecting a baby, a loving 3-year-old German Shepherd was dumped by his family.

In the back of a kennel at Dallas Animal Services, a young dog named Rocco was hunched over and shaking like a leaf. He had no idea why his family had abandoned him there. His sad eyes looked up at passers-by, asking, “Why am I here?” With all of the unfamiliar smells, noises, and people, a shelter can be extremely stressful.

When a woman visiting the shelter saw Rocco trembling in fear, she took a video and posted it online in the hopes that the gentle dog would be adopted by a rescue group. When Preethi Pillaipakkam, a DFW German Shepherd Rescue foster, saw the video, she immediately went to the shelter to save Rocco.

Pillaipakkam told The Dodo, “The shelter is certainly not the environment for a dog like Rocco.” “He was apprehensive about getting into the car. In the car, he even hid beneath the seat. He was pacing a little and appeared to be in a lot of pain.”

Rocco weighed only 60 pounds and was underweight. He should be in the 85-90 pound range. Rocco was taken home by Pillaipakkam to relax and come out of his shell. Rocco was initially nervous and perplexed as to where he was. Rocco gradually began to play with toys with the help of another German Shepherd in the house.

“This is a huge step for Rocco, who had completely shut down,” Pillaipakkam wrote on Rocco’s own Instagram page.

Rocco became his foster mother’s shadow once he realized he was safe. He would play with squeaky toys or balls when he wasn’t following her around. The video of Rocco when he first arrived at the shelter went viral, and many people expressed interest in adopting him.

Rocco’s forever home will be found after the rescue has sorted through all of the applications. The sweet child is deserving of a loving family who will never abandon him. His foster mom hopes that his story and Instagram page will inspire other people to adopt large breed dogs.

“The top reasons for large dogs being given away typically include a change in the family situation,” Pillaipakkam said. “This could be a move, a kid, a marriage, a divorce, or any other such factors.” “With a German shepherd, and the prevalence of breed-based discrimination, finding places to live with these breeds is becoming increasingly difficult.” We’re hoping to raise awareness about this.”
