Seventeen went and one went back

I volunteered at the shelter's offsite adoption event at PetSmart yesterday. We took 17 dogs and only one went back to the shelter. My heart is breaking for this little Cairn.
Less than 2 years old, healthy, handsome, intelligent, playful, housebroken, neutered, microchipped, sits for treats. Appears to answer to "Buddy," though he was a stray and we don't know his name. Kid friendly. One problem -- he doesn't like other dogs. He destroyed three potential adoptions by growling and barking at other dogs passing by. Surely, there must be a home out there where he can be the only pet and be loved and spoiled. I truly love this little guy. Of course, I can't take him because I have two seniors, and it wouldn't be fair to them.
Customers going into and out of PetSmart were in the Christmas spirit and bought inexpensive toys for our shelter dogs. Buddy had a ball destroying and tearing up his stuffed snowman, and another citizen bought him a sturdy knotted rope. I put it in his cage when I put him back in the trailer. I hope the shelter lets him keep it. It's his only Christmas gift.
Praying for the perfect adopter Wednesday. Of course, I can't be there to "sell" him, because I have to work Wednesday.
