A video of a pitbull terrier mix called Electra has emerged online, showing the poor thing being left at a dog shelter in California. The footage has been watched by nearly 330,000 people – most of whom have been reduced to tears.
The tragic expression on Electra’s face went viral after it was shared on Facebook by animal activist Lolys Menchaka. In the clip you see the poor dog in a emotional state, after the animal realises her owners have left her and are not coming back.
ADOPTED ELECTRA IS AVAILABLE NOW FOR PUBLIC ADOPTION. PLEASE KEEP SHARINGELECTRA represents the face os sadness and reality in the shelters. Sometimes I would like to understand owners surrendering their animals and I don't like to judge them but when you see how the dogs come to the receiving department with their happy faces and they stand all proud I just can't understand.. (I'm speaking in general, not sure if she was found as stray or she was an owner surrendered) ELECTRA is available now for public adoption. Hopefully she can leaves soon. Please share so people know she is there.

Please contact them for any INFORMATION and/or UPDATES. Adoptions have to be made in person. Potential adopters have to bring their other dogs (if any) for a meet and greet. Im only a net-worker therefore, i do not have pulling rights. I name the dogs for my personal references, the shelter doesn't know those names so always make sure to ask for a dog by their control number not by their name to avoid confusion.INLAND VALLEY HUMANE SOCIETYPOMONA CA909 623-9777VIDEO THREAD https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=1839944282992583&set=a.1454924388161243.1073741829.100009310861488&type=3&theater

Another one said: “This kills me. Those eyes. She’s so scared. The wagging tail. She’s still wants to give love. Dogs are so selfless.”
This story has a happy ending though, as Electra was spotted by someone on social media who fell in love with the dog instantly and adopted her.
