“My Sister Adopted Her Very First Dog And His Before & After Pics Have Me Crying”

ADVERTISEMENT

Meriah Jae couldn’t be more proud of her sister for adopting a sheltered pit bull in serious need for some love. So she decided to express her feelings on Twitter, where Meriah stitched together a couple of cutest pics of her sister’s new pet with a powerful message: “adopt, don’t shop.”

And this message simply blew up online with over 133,000 retweets, 345,000 likes, and most importantly a ton of encouraging comments with kind words, tips and more stories like this.

Of course, let’s not discount the star of the whole show – the adorable pit bull named Charlie who’s finally enjoying his life with a loving owner, while also becoming a Twitter symbol for pet adoption. Nice going, Charlie!

Aww, he looks so happy now. His smile is adorable. (Too bad his ears are cropped.) I'm always glad to read a story about a happily adopted animal.

While I disagree with cropping tails and ears and everything else, I think in this case, since it can't be undone, it kinda adds to his cuteness, like "My owners were so mean and they did all dis to me, but my new owner so amazing!"
