They left me here, how could they?

You can almost hear the sad words coming from this surrendered pit bull who is currently housed at the Chicago, Ill., Animal Care and Control.

The one-year-old dog, named "Zeus," was given up by his family two days ago. According to his former owner, he is good with other dogs and he lived with three children (no cats).

Since the day that Zeus was left behind by his family, he has been excruciatingly depressed.
