Sometimes the cruelty of some people is just simply unbelievable. They adopt a dog, they let him think they would take care of him and love him forever, and then the next minute they kick him out for some nonsensical reason! What’s that dog supposed to feel, and think?
Hunter had experienced such horrible treatment, and it scared the living daylights out of that poor boy. His owners brought home a new puppy, and just because he didn’t take the news very well, they dumped him ruthlessly.
The 6-year-old Border Collie was surrendered to the Houston Humane Society in Texas, where he met the long-time volunteer Randi Bertholet. According to Randi, the separation broke his heart.
“Ever wonder what a broken heart looks like? Well there you have it,” she captioned a video of her and the sad boy on Instagram. “Hunter was surrendered to the shelter yesterday because… ready for it? He didn’t get along with their new puppy. Just when I think the human race couldn’t disappoint me anymore.”
“I found him in the corner of his kennel, too afraid to move,” the girl continued. “Sometimes I have to stop walking dogs, and sit on the cold floor (the same cold floor these pups sit on) to give them some comfort that’s it’s not as scary as they think.”
Lucky for Hunter, Randi’s video immediately went viral and adoption applications were pouring in. They all loved this sweet boy and thought he deserved much better than that. The pitiful boy was officially adopted just a few days later.
His new owners Larry and David also have another Border Collie doggo who’s only one year older than Hunter, and their bond bloomed right away. Look at that happy face!
His new friend was named Dolly after Dolly Parton, so he was renamed Kenny after Dolly Parton’s duet partner Kenny Rogers. If you check out their Instagram account KennynDolly, you can see that this charming boy is living his life to the fullest now. He has just found the right family to love and cherish him!
Please share Hunter/Kenny’s bittersweet story with your loved ones!
