Depressed Shelter Dog Can’t Stop Smiling During His Day Out On The Town

Elmo the pit bull was discovered in a yard with another dog, and animal control was alerted to come help the neglected pups. The dogs were taken to KC Pet Project in Kansas City where Elmo was scared and miserable.

The other dog was adopted, but Elmo still hadn’t found his forever home. He was terrified and didn’t know what to do.

So the staff thought it’d be a good idea to get the depressed pit bull outside where he might be able to enjoy himself. And that smile says it all!

The outing was part of KC Pet Project’s “furlough” program that gets shelter dogs outside for a day or two. Elmo went to the park and even made some friends at a local hair salon. And he couldn’t stop smiling the entire time!

And then for the best part: a couple heard about Elmo’s day out and drove five hours to meet him. They fell in love with him immediately and decided to adopt him!

Now he’ll wear that smile forever and ever. 🙂

Amazing! What a turnaround for Elmo the pit bull. 🙂
