A family promised to adopt him, and then returned him because he wasn’t “playful” enough. This broke his heart and he shut himself off.
When the homeless bulldog was pulled from the street for the first time in March, he was a gentle and happy man. The staff at the Philadelphia asylum believed that this handsome and well-behaved boy would soon find his forever home. But the residence quickly became a nightmare in March.
March wasn’t wont to living in confined kennels surrounded by other sacred animals waiting to be adopted. This caused him mental damage, and his sparks began to weaken. However, the most important blow for him was getting rejected by a family that had promised to adopt him, simply because he wasn’t as “playful” as they expected him to be.
When he learned that the family who adopted him eventually cancelled the adoption and sent him back to the shelter, March was destroyed. After finding himself back in his cold doghouse, March looked visibly defeated and depressed. He stared pitifully at the wall, curled up lazily in a corner, refusing to interact with anyone.
When a regional news reporter named Dawn Timmeney heard about March, she decided to share his heartbreaking story on social media. The haunting pictures of March’s downcast kennel stance garnered immense attention in the community – which changed the lifetime of this gloomy boy forever!
Within 3 days of Dawn’s social media endeavor, a rescue came forward to need in March before his kill list turn was due. ItThis is a rare moment of victory, because March allowed his freedom to run out of the shelter!
