The pain, confusion and loneliness felt by homeless dogs who are locked away behind the bars of an animal control kennel run is unimaginable...the overwhelming sense of hopelessness is difficult to grasp.

A photo which was taken of a four-year-old American bull dog at the Miami-Dade, Fla., Animal Services facility poignantly captures the dog's heartache.

The following words were written about this impounded dog and posted to Facebook with the hope that he might be saved:

Amazingly after all he is going thru, he is till the sweetest most lovable boy ever! Who craves the love and affection of a human. He misses his long walks and being called a good boy.
