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!

Be sure you ADOPT that new puppy, not purchase. Give a puppy a great home FOR LIFE! :)


Congratulations to The Girls and their new puppy. Sounds like unconditional love!
We were happy to support you and to be 1 in over 1 million likes.
Best wishes!


Congrats girls on your achievement. As others have mentioned above, please try an adopt a puppy from a shelter as there as so many puppies and dogs that need a good home. I for one have been working to start fostering since I already have one dog and amy currently not within the financial means to totally adopt another dog.

So happy for you though and any puppy that will get a new forever home.


A puppy is a living breathing being and a serious responsibility .. not to mention a member of the family... not a prize to be played for in a game on facebook... screw you... this family SHOULD NOT have a puppy...


Congratulations girls, I'm sure you will give a beautiful puppy a loving home..well done! Xo :-)

I don't understand the negative feedback. Anyone who has loved a pet and lost one to death knows how much it hurts and how lonely it is without the pet. Research proves we are happier and healthier with pets, and we are safer with a dog in the family. The girls came up with a clever, fun way to get a puppy. Nothing about this story or this family was negative. They loved the dog they lost to cancer. They will love their new puppy. What a bleak, grey, sad world the negative posters must live in; what a happy, loving, fun world the puppy and the family will live on!


We all want to know what they are going to call it...


I just hit the "like" button just before reading you story. My family and I know what it's like to lose a pet, just before Thanksgiving we lost our cat due to illness. So right in the middle of the holidays we went to our local shelters and just before the County pound closed we got our "new" 8-year old cat. We could not be happier. Good job girls, Dad lets see some pics.
