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!

So good to see something so cute & positive on Facebook congratulations girls I hope you & the rest of your family love your new puppy & give him/her a loving playful home to spend their life!!


Don't pay any attention girls to ANYONE willing to call you names. He or she didn't understand that A: you lost a dog to cancer and are ready for a new pup to help ease the pain of that loss and raise another great dog. B: You are on the ASPCA site which means you are rescuing a pup - GOOD FOR YOU - be proud of yourselves and NEVER let someone that has NO CLUE what they are talking about - bring you down. I am positive any pup will be lucky to have such a great family! Good JOB!


"So like this"? How about "please"? Do children actually use the word anymore or simply make demands?

Girls you made it more than 1 mil likes

I think it's really weird the Dad had them do this. He either craves media attention or didn't want the dog and was trying to get out of it, or both. Glad the girls get their puppy though, if this is even real.

Well done Dad, you're girls will remember this experience forever and realise that out of sadness, tragedy and heartbreak and not giving up hope, anything can be achieved with a little bit of effort and community spirit and you were their hero in showing them the way... xx

Ooops;... should have been Your! not You're (should have proof read before posting!


the dad is just starving for attention like 99% of people on facebook. it's wrong to play a game for a living breathing animal, its not a prize to be won! the girls should be able to have a puppy anyways, but he just wanted attention so he made them do this! he is a pathetic parent!!
