A sweet dog named Bobby surrendered to the Miami Dade Animal Services last year won the hearts of shelter workers and volunteers, but after two months of waiting, the dog moved onto the “code red” list
Things did not look good for the young Pit Bull mix until a photo of him looking dejectedly downwards wearing a green sweater went viral on social media.
“Please don’t let this boy die here,” the photo’s caption read. “He deserves a second chance at life in a loving home with good people. We will sponsor his adoption fees to a loving home.”
Bobby’s new mom is Paola Mariaca. She regularly volunteers at the shelter and already knew about Bobby and his plight and decided she needed to take more personal action to help him.
Paola has taken Bobby to the vet already and he’s been treated for mange and an ear infection. She promises he will have a safe, happy home with her and her other rescue animals!
I’m glad Bobby ended up in the loving arms of Paola! Bobby’s story shows just how much the power of networking saves the lives of shelter dogs.
