Shelter Dog Reaches Out Her Paw And Asks For Help


Ellie is a one-year-old pit bull who’s as sweet as can be.

Ellie’s first owners adopted her when she was a tiny puppy. But unfortunately, after Ellie grew from a puppy into an adult dog, her owners felt she “wasn’t cute anymore.” And so, they surrendered her to a high-kill shelter in Jackson, Tennessee.

Nobody put in an adoption application for Ellie, and so the shelter decided to add her to the euthanasia list. Ellie was out of time, and it seemed like she somehow realized that.

The day before she was supposed to be put down, Jon Patel visited the shelter. And when he reached Ellie’s kennel, she reached her paw towards him.
