Different German Shepherd Mixes

Two-year-old Zuzu got excited when she saw her family come to the fence of the shelter

She assumed they were there to take her home and began furiously wagging her tail

The family talked to her through the fence, but when asked if they were there to claim their dog they said no

They were there to find a new dog as Zuzu was now too sad since her father had died

'With her fast wagging tail seeing her owners Zuzu lit up like a Christmas Tree. She looked like the happiest dog. Yeah, she's going home, ' wrote shelter worker Desi Lara on Facebook, who also took video of the heartrending scene. 'But no. Talking to her owners they told me they were not here to reclaim her, they were getting another dog.'

Lara said that the family told them that sensitive Zuzu has been depressed and crying since her father passed away, and she just wasn't the same dog, so they didn't want her anymore.

Video of German Shepherd mix Zuzu getting excited to see her family but then realizing they weren't there for her went viral as people expressed their outrage

'Their solutions for her unhappiness was just leaving her here! And go get another dog, ' she wrote.

It's unclear if the family did indeed take home another dog, or why they were allowed to if they did, but social media was outraged over the dog's abandonment.

'I sure hope like everyone else is saying that this shelter didn't adopt out another dog to them as**hole owners, because if they did they are totally irresponsible a**holes too!!! I can't even watch this video because I will be even more livid and upset.B*******!!!' wrote one commenter.

The Downey shelter says a rescue group intends to take Zuzu and find her a 'wonderful' home

The shelter has since updated its posts to say that Zuzu will be taken in by a caring rescue group who will find her a home.

Many people on Facebook have left messages saying they want to adopt her - even offering to drive in from other states.

The shelter named her Zuzu after the little girl in 'It's a Wonderful Life' because as Lara wrote, 'we are going to post, tag and share her and give her a new life. A wonderful life!'
