You know you're a dog who's been in a shelter too long when you not being adopted makes the news. That's the case for a good boy in Missouri named Canelo. He has now been waiting more than a year to find his forever family.

Canelo's plight has become so desperate that his story was trending on Yahoo News. Valentine's Second Chance is an animal rescue in the Kansas City area and their video of Canelo has gone viral on TikTok for a good reason.

I saw Valentine's Second Chance mention on TikTok about how the pit bull breed needs a second chance. I've heard it said there are no bad dog breeds only bad owners and I would agree with that point. Perhaps a family will be able to see past that and find a place for Canelo. It's a sad thing for an animal to wait this long for a forever home.
