HAMILTON COUNTY, Ind. (Dec. 1, 2015) – The picture will break your heart—a 14-year-old dog named Ox looking forlorn after being given up.

Ox lived in a home for 14 years, but he ended up at the Humane Society for Hamilton County after his owner got a new significant other who was allergic to him.

The group shared Ox’s story on Facebook, writing “this is what a confused dog looks like. We hope that Ox can know love again…and the next picture we can share is of him in a new, loving, FOREVER home.” The post was shared more than 4,700 times, and Ox was adopted a short time later.

While Ox has a happy ending to his story, the Humane Society for Hamilton County said there are still several senior pets that need homes.
