After 14 years as a stalwart companion, Ox was dropped off at the local shelter.
Because of allergies.
It seems an unlikely transgression for a dog who's stood by his owner's side for so long - and likely only wanted to do just that for a little while longer.
But his owner found a new partner. The kind who's allergic to dogs.
So Ox was dropped off at the Humane Society of Hamilton County in Indiana.
