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!

How awesome for you..I'm so happy that you made enough likes to get the puppy you so desperately wanted. It's exciting!! I'm so sorry for the loss of your other dog to cancer I have a ten year old lab/plott hound mix and I cannot imagine losing her. I think it's so nice of your father to stick to his word, & I hope you have amazing memories with your new puppy. I hope the puppy brings you lots of joy and happiness as your other dog had. Please post photos of you and your new puppy.
