Zuzu, a two-year-old German Shepherd mix, went viral in November 2016 for her sad story that broke hearts across the country.
After her dad died, she became extremely depressed, moping around and crying all the time. Her owners didn’t like the way she had been acting, so she wound up at a shelter.
One day, Zuzu began jumping around in excitement when she noticed her previous owner there. Shelter staff assumed they were there to take Zuzu back home, but much to their surprise, they were actually there to adopt a different dog.
When the story went viral, the shelter was flooded with inquiries about her. That’s when Russ and Judith Gallo saw a video of Zuzu and fell in love. Their dog had recently passed away, leaving their other pup, Dodger, very lonely and heartbroken. They wanted to adopt another dog to cheer Dodger up, and they knew Zuzu was just the one!
Zuzu is doing great in her new home and has become the best of friends with Dodger. Watch her in her new life in the video below:
