A shelter dog who has been wearing a Christmas sweater for two months finally finds a ‘furever’ home

Bobby, a dog surrendered to Miami Dade Animal Services, quickly warmed the hearts of the volunteers and bonded with them.Unfortunately, this did not result in Bobby being adopted right away.In fact, things were looking bleak for him after only two months at Miami Dade Animal Services.That’s because he was put on a list that no animal wants to be on: the code red list.

Bobby’s fortunes were about to change, thanks to social media.A photo of him wearing a Christmas sweater was circulated on the internet.But, in stark contrast to the festive sweater, Bobby’s expression was depressed and heartbroken.

The volunteers who assisted him hoped that this photograph would result in a miracle — that Bobby’s life would be saved.The caption on the photo was also heartbreaking.It urged those who saw the photo to do the right thing, because if they didn’t, Bobby would perish.

To sweeten the deal, Miami Dade Animal Services offered to pay Bobby’s adoption fees.They only needed someone to provide him with a new home…

That someone did!
