On Friday, the female pit bull was killed by a car on South 16th Street in Phoenix, but her partner refused to abandon her.
The male dog stayed by her side for more than 14 hours before Animal Control removed her body and now, they say, he is still so depressed he may not be able to find a home to adopt him.
Mr Silva thinks that the dogs may have an owner because the male had a harness on him when he was found.
However, that person has not emerged to claim him. Without an owner, the male pit bull's future is uncertain.
'If he continues to show these signs of withdrawal we will place him in a recovery home that can help him with his grieving,' Mr Silva said. 'I am not certain we will be placing him up for adoption.'
