Sisters Get One Million Facebook Likes to Adopt a New Puppy

Thanks to the power of social media, a puppy will soon have a new forever home!

After their previous dog died of cancer, a pair of sisters took to Facebook on Tuesday in an effort to get their father to adopt another. The pair posted a photo of themselves holding a sign that read, “Hi World. We want a puppy! Our dad said we could get one if we get one million likes! He doesn’t think we can do it! So ‘LIKE’ this!”

Luckily for the two girls and their new puppy, the photo quickly hit the goal, amassing 1.2 million likes in just seven hours. In a post on their Facebook page, Twogirlsandapuppy, the girls’ father promises he’ll be true to his word to give a lucky dog a new home.

Congratulations, girls!

Congrats girls!! I'm sure yall will make your new puppy very happy . Because that puppy needed you too!! HUGS!!


Thats Awesome Congratulations to you and your new puppy!!


Congratulations!!! Despite the negative feedback that went with positive support on Facebook, I think that ASPCA and this family deserve a social thank you for bringing social awareness! This story elicited responses at such a fast rate and with any positive change we seek for animal welfare - it needs to start with people speaking about their concerns regarding these issues. Job well done.


Congrats girls!! hope you enjoy your new puppy, and remember he or she will always be a part of your family


congrats that is wonderful enjoy your new puppy
