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!

Way to go girls, can't wait to meet the new member of your family. That is wonderful you are going to adopt from a shelter there are many dogs just waiting to meet you.

My name is Jerri Ashby. I love children and dogs. My dogs happen to be my children. I have two American Bulldogs. They are kennel trained, house broken, GREAT WITH CHILDREN, coupled to breed, pure breed, and full of energy. As much I love them, I am not able to keep them any longer. If someone can care for them, and keep together, I will give them to a loving home. I have papers for Hank, my 3 year-old male, and lost Susie's papers. She will be 3 in a few months. I think my two dogs would make a great fit in your home. If you are interested, please e-mail me with Hank and Susie as the subject. They are so well behaved that a lease isn't even required to walk them. I know you have your hearts set on a puppy and if you decide against my two, I know that y'all will get your puppy and give it a great, loving home.


Way to go girls for your persistence! And good job Dad for motivating the girls!!! This will be one lucky dog!!!


Congrads to u all Awesome job girls enjoy ur new baby
