Shelter life didn't sit well with this cute doggo.

"His spunky personality is dimming. This once jolly ball-lovin' boy now sits in his room and cries endlessly," the shelter wrote on Facebook. "The kennels cause him too much stress, so we have moved him to a visiting room, but NOTHING compares to the warmth and love of a family."

Along with the post, the shelter staff shared a video of Major looking horribly depressed. The post boasts over 1,000 views, and Facebook users were heartbroken by Major's story.
