There is a dog named Dotty, a Dalmatian mix, that lived at the Hilbrae Rescue Kennels in the UK.

Dotty was viewed over 10,000 times for adoption over a six-year period.  Not a single person wanted to adopt Dotty.  Not one.

Even after 10,000 rejections, you can still see the energy, the enthusiasm and the love in the face of this dog.

After 10,000 viewings and 10,000 rejections, nobody adopted Dotty.  She was called “Briton’s loneliest dog.”  Yet, Dotty never stopped wagging her tail at the kennel.

If you were rejected 10,000 times trying something, would you give up hope or make a 10,001 attempt to try again?

Or would you feel sorry for yourself or feel you are a victim?
