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!

Now hopefully they will realize this is a living thing and not a toy. I hope they take care of the dog and don't neglect, abuse. Hopefully this new dog will be going to as great family.


This story brought tears to my eyes! What a blessing that the family will save a life that will enrich theirs!!

I posted about this, and in response friend in Australia said that he'd send me a bottle of Bundy rum if I got 1 million likes. Challenge accepted.


I don't understand why some of you have to veer off the happy
subject of the girls getting their wish and go off about keeping
promises and talking about threats. Lighten up, life is too short
to turn their happiness into a debate. A family with a new puppy,
just smile. God bless them.

I am so glad you girls got your new puppy. I'm happy I was able to help alittle. I sent your message & picture to my family and friends. Give your puppy a hug & kiss from us.
