Suzie the Beagle arrived at the Maryland SPCA in Baltimore when she was 2 years old.
She was a homeless dog and had never socialized with humans or other dogs. This made her adoption prospects quite bleak.
This short film shows a typical day in Suzie’s life during her stay at the shelter. Like a perfect good girl, she grooms herself and sits upright just as the potential adopters start dropping in. However, no one seems to take any particular interest in her. Her spark grows dimmer every second as people walk past her without showing her love, and go on to adopt other dogs.
We see Suzie’s heartbreaking reaction when a little girl stops by her kennel. The horror and desperation in Suzie’s eyes turns to hope as soon as the little girl reaches her hand out to the dispirited dog!
