When Electra was dumped at the Inland Valley Humane Society in Pomona, California, by her owners, the four-year-old puppy was heartbroken when her owners walked away as she was locked in a cage.
The video below was uploaded to Facebook by a local woman Lolys Menchaca who helps the shelter find its animals new homes.
‘Electra represents the face of sadness and reality in the shelters;’ she wrote in the video’s caption.
‘Sometimes I would like to understand owners surrendering their animals and I don’t like to judge them, but when you see how the dogs come to the receiving department with their happy faces and they stand all proud I just can’t understand,’ said Lolys.
Many of the more than 270,000 people who watched the video were touched by Electra’s crushing abandonment.
‘This kills me. Those eyes. She’s so scared. The wagging tail. She still wants to give love. Dogs are so selfless,’ one wrote.
Electra found a new home and is now listed as adopted at the top of the post; hopefully with a long and happy new life ahead of her.
