Imagine being a 7-year-old and waking up one morning to an empty house.
Your parents are gone. Nowhere to be found.
Sure, you’d fend for yourself for a while. But, eventually, you’d venture out to find them.
And some food.
Now, imagine being a 1-year-old dog in the same situation.
Nothing is wrong with you. You just got unlucky.
Surely, you’d be so grateful if someone would adopt you, right?
