The video was filmed in Fort Worth Animal Care and Control Shelter by DeeAnn Skinner, a volunteer based in Texas. The clip was later shared to TikTok account @thefarnetwork, where it amassed over 30000 views.



The heartbreaking video shows the 11-year-old dog lying on the ground facing a wall. The on-screen text says: “He wouldn’t move until he was alone.”

Skinner told Newsweek: “Getting bigger dogs to safety is a challenge but thankfully, he is now safe with a new foster.”

Skinner told Newsweek the dog was on stray hold for three days.

She said: “He warmed up to me on his second day.” His stray hold was finished by November 10, she added: “We didn’t want him to spend another night in the shelter.”

“I’m so happy that somebody finally stepped up to foster him and I am praying he finds a forever home soon,” she told Newsweek.
