A 4-year old American bulldog named Ritter, was recently left at the Humane Society for Hamilton County.
The animal shelter posted a photo of Ritter on Facebook last Tuesday, showing the dog’s condition shortly after he was left there. In the heart-crushing picture, Ritter can be seen sitting in the corner of a kennel, with his head hung low.
“A picture is worth a thousand words … and Ritter’s is no different,” the caption of the photograph said. “Dropped off at the shelter due to his family losing his home, Ritter’s negative reaction to the shelter was immediate and heartbreaking. This is the reality our animals face every day – Heartbreak and a sense of hopelessness.”
As of Wednesday, the picture has been shared more than 3000 times.
And by Tuesday night the shelter reported that Ritter has found a new home!
“Ritter has found a home!! Thank you to everyone who shared his story and reached out. Happily ever after, Ritter!”
Sophie Marie is the name of the kind soul who has rescued Ritter, and she promises to love him forever!
