For any dog lover, giving up your sweet dog becomes an unimaginable idea. Though it seems horrible, circumstances sometimes might call for this in the animal’s best interest. In Bobby’s case, surrendering him to Miami Dade Animal Services seemed to be the best choice.
After winning the hearts of all workers at the shelter, the shelter had to move him to the code red list.
Things headed in a bad direction for the pit bull mix. After posting a photo of him with a green sweater, the photo went viral.
Urgent Dogs of Miami saved the animal. They proposed the idea of him wearing a sweater. Looking absolutely adorable, somebody would definitely notice him.
“Please don’t let this boy die here …He deserves a second chance at life in a loving home with good people. We will sponsor his adoption fees to a loving home.”
The sweet photo touched everybody who saw it. Not long after, people wanting to save Bobby inundated the shelter.
One person that reached out, Robert Miller, also worked for a local rescue. When arriving at the shelter, he brought great news. Bobby found a new home. Paola Maricia became his new mom.
She wrote on Facebook, “I took on the responsibility to adopt him because although I had been sharing and networking him, he was still at MDAS shutting down …Then he went viral, [which] brings out good people and bad people. After waiting so long, he deserves only good things from now on.”
Bobby finding a new home was an incredible thing. Luckily, he now has a caring and loving home where he can live a happy life.
