Heartbreaking Video Shows NOBODY Wants Three-Year-Old Dog ‘Bob’ At New York Adoption Event

A New York puppy became the talk of the ‘Tok, TikTok that is after he went viral because no one wanted to interact with him at an adoption event in New York.

Bob Parr, the name given to the dog by his shelter, went viral over the weekend as thousands of users sympathized with the pup who was ignored by the crowd.

The video, posted by Andrea Caceres, an illustrator who goes by PetArtByAndrea on TikTok, is captioned with a sad face emoji and a message to her future family: “this is the cutest puppy.”

In the TikTok, the person filming shows the busy event in Central Park, organized by Badass Brooklyn Animal Shelterand writes: ‘POV: You are at an adoption event and all the adoptable dogs are getting attention except…Bob.’

DailyMail.com spoke with Bob’s adoptive mother, Julie Zeilinger, who said some people came and interacted with him, but it was difficult because he is very shy. Julie said Bob had been with them for about four months and it “took him a while to get used to us”.

She thinks the reason he wasn’t so popular with those in attendance was because he was scared as it was his first time at an event like this.

“He was very upset, and I think people felt that and wanted to give him some space,” Julie said, adding, however, that anyone who adopts him is in for a treat.

“He’s an incredibly sweet dog who just wants to love and be loved,” she said.

Bob is named after Pixar character Bob Parr from ‘The Incredibles’, due to his “super strength”

When Bob’s name appears on screen, the camera pans to show the three-year-old, 10-pound dog patiently sitting and waiting for someone to play with him.

Bob, a terrier according to his PetFinder page, watches the crowd towards dozens of people, waiting for someone to approach him.

As he sits on the grass, the woman accompanying Bob calmly caresses him while looking around to see if anyone is coming.

It was also Bob’s first outing at an adoption event after undergoing treatment for heartworms.

Since being posted on Sunday, the video has racked up millions of views, 3.1 million to be exact, and hundreds of thousands of reactions.

Over 400,000 people liked the TikTok video and the post received almost 3,000 comments.

‘COME ON!! Bob is clearly top dog gear!! ‘ said one commenter.

‘See. I don’t cry a lot. But even a vaguely sad story about a dog and I can’t control my tears. I will hyperventilate,” another person said.

‘Awwww my poor heart can’t take it. The way he looks around like “and me,” another commenter wrote.

Bob became so popular with his first viral TikTok that Caceres posted a follow-up video with more information about the dog.

The response to this video has also been massive.

The follow-up received 250,000 views, 32,000 likes and hundreds of comments.

“I won’t be able to sleep until I find out he was adopted,” one person wrote.

Bob’s biography on PetFinder.com says he was named after the Pixar character from “The Incredibles” because of his “super strength.”

“He was unfortunately dropped off at the shelter, along with his puppies, during one of our rescue trips,” the page reads.

“But given his super strength, we know he will be able to put the past behind him and become the perfect companion he was always meant to be,” his biography continues.

Bob has been neutered and is ready to be brought home, officials say.

His adoptive mother also said she thinks it might take a while for him to feel comfortable with whoever adopts him, “but once he knows he can trust you and that you are there to protect him, he is all yours”.

Julie also posted a video on TikTok on Monday, sharing even more details about the 10-pound pup.

“He often has trouble staying awake and has the cutest little ass when he’s feeling frisky,” Julie wrote in the caption of the video, which shows said “butt pop.”

She said he came to the shelter from Georgia in June and has been with her and her family ever since.

She said he was in treatment most of the time he was at their house and Sunday’s outing was his first adoption event.

The adoptive mum also said Bob used to spend ‘a lot of time’ on the couch thanks to the time he couldn’t get his heart rate up during his worm treatment.

@juliezeilinger

More Bob content! He often has trouble staying awake and has the cutest little ass when he’s feeling frisky. He was not allowed to raise his heart rate for 2 months while undergoing medical treatment, so he clearly spent a lot of time on our couch. He has a lot of applications now thanks to @petartbyandrea but you can apply here! https://badassanimalrescue.com/adoption-application
