A rescue dog is now said to spend his days staring at a blank wall after his would-be adoptees pulled out at the last minute.
Living in animal rescue shelter ACCT in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, since he was brought in as a stray, the 58lb dog was finally due to be rescued.
But, at the last minute, his new family pulled out of the deal and March was taken back to the shelter.
Since then, March has spent his days facing the grey wall in his kennel, and interest in him has sharply declined.
He is now said to be getting sick with sadness.
Fox News reporter Dawn Timmeney posted on Facebook: “This boy thought he was about to embark on a better life, only to be returned to the scary Philadelphia city shelter.
“Sadly, he has barely gotten any notice, and he is getting depressed and sick now.
“He was such a happy boy, but shelter life is taking a toll on him.”
Described as a ‘handsome’ dog by volunteers, a fund has now been set up by sympathisers to find March a home.
It has raised $709 in just over a day.
