Delivering a difficult message to someone is never an easy thing to do, especially when you have to break the news to a loved one.
Well, that is exactly what happened to this adorable dog whose owner tells him he is adopted. In the video below, he appears to be in a state of shock as he turns his head, with eyes wide open.
Even though we do not actually know what is going on behind the camera, or if dogs even understand the process of adoption, one thing is certain — this pooch’s reaction is priceless.
So, when is the best time to tell your dog he’s adopted? Apparently, not while he’s taking a nap.

According to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA), about 2.7 million shelter animals are adopted each year. Of those, 1.4 million are dogs and 1.3 million are cats.
Of the more than 3.9 million dogs entering shelters nationwide, about 35 percent are adopted, 31 percent are euthanized and 26 percent who came in as strays are given back to their owner.
