Adopted During Lockdown, His Owners Gave Him Up When They Went Back to Work
Deacon was once adopted, but given up.

By Claire Cornish

Deacon is an amazingly handsome young Dogue de Bordeaux mix who is waiting to find himself a forever home.

Four-year-old Deacon thought he had hit the jackpot last year when a wonderful family adopted him at the beginning of the pandemic lockdown. He loved being taken for walks, including in car rides and playing with his humans, but eight months later, when his humans went back to work, he was returned to the shelter.

Poor Deacon doesn’t understand what he did to be given away again, and he is longing to be the center of somebody’s family again.

He is currently at Broward County Animal Care and is well-behaved and knows his commands; he can pull with excitement sometimes on the leash but is easily brought back to your side again. If you would like to give Deacon a reason to smile, please contact to arrange a meet and greet.
