Luke Bryan found an 18-Year-Old senior dog abandoned at the shelter then immediately filed adoption papers


For some people, tragedy and loss will cause them to harden their heart. For other people, though, turmoil makes their heart grow larger instead. For example, country superstar Luke Bryan lost both of his older siblings in separate sudden tragedies. Then, he also lost his niece at seven months old because of a congenital heart defect.

Luke never closed his heart, though, instead he opened it up as well as his home.


You see, after the loss of their niece, Luke and Caroline Bryan started Brett’s Barn to honor the memory of Sadie Brett Boyer. The very first animal the couple added was a white pony, as promised.

Sweet Brett, here's your pony! Her name is Kilo and she's perfectly perfect. Playful, gentle, and has the cutest little gallop! Little heavy in the rear, but she owns it…has some sass in her step! Kilo is loving life in your barn. Thank you @redemption_road_rescue for introducing Kilo and many other animals to our family. We always knew we would find (for Brett) the perfect pony, but never thought she wouldn't be here to love it. If Brett were still with us, I imagine she and Ellen would braid and put little bows in her mane. My brother would drive all over Tennessee to find the perfect unicorn horn for Kilo…because we all know Brett would've wanted a unicorn! We love you Queen Bee 👑🐝 #brightforbrett #brettsbarn

“After Brett passed away, I decided to keep a promise I made to her when she was about a month old… a white pony!” wrote Caroline. “We found the pony at a local animal rescue facility. Along with the white pony, we adopted another pony, goat, and pig.”


Well, the couple didn’t stop there, either.

As you can see, the couple added goats, chickens, pigs, and even a couple of adorable mini-llamas.

Of course, Brett’s farm also has a few expected animals, like this kitty cat.

Amazingly, they even have a couple of kangaroos!

However, when a local rescue posted a photo of an aging dog who was suddenly homeless, the Bryans simply couldn’t ignore it.


When the Proverbs 12:10 animal shelter posted this photo — it tugged on the Bryan’s heartstrings.

You see, this is Poochie. Poochie is an 18-year-old mixed-breed dog nearing the end of his life. Sadly, his owner said they developed a sudden allergy to him — so they turned him over to a shelter.

Because of Poochie’s advanced age, the workers at the shelter assumed that he would spend the rest of his days there with them.

Luckily for Poochie, the Bryans saw his post on Facebook. Of course, they have plenty of room at Brett’s Farm, and they just knew that Poochie would fit right in.

Well, as you can see, they were absolutely correct.

We aren’t sure who is luckier in this equation. After all, Poochie gets to live out his remaining years with this beautiful family.

However, the Bryan’s get to have this sweet, adorable, dedicated boi to hang out with too.

One thing is sure, Brett’s Farm looks like a place where most anyone wouldn’t mind settling down for their golden years — whether they have four legs or only two.
