“If the kindest souls were rewarded with the longest lives, dogs would outlive us all.” ♥️ My heart is sad but full to post this..our sweet Prince Poochie has passed away. He lived 18 years and was loved by so many people. My kids especially loved to hear him snore when he slept! Thank you @proverbs1210animalrescue for giving our family the opportunity to love this sweet dog. And thank you to @abbysmyers @nicolebobek @erin_creighton_ @framigosperfecto for your big hearts. Poochie loved you all. #adoptdontshop
The post comes after the charity Proverbs 12:10 Animal Rescue in Nashville, Tenn., took to Facebook to share the news that Caroline had popped into the shelter to take the pup home.
“After reading about Poochie on our social media, Luke Bryan and his beautiful wife, Caroline applied and adopted Poochie this past Saturday!” the organization shared.
They also wrote, “I don’t know of a soul who doesn’t love a happy ending. Well, get ready for your Monday smile because this is as good as it gets!”
“Poochie, the 18-year-old who was surrendered to the pound when his family became allergic and whom we pulled was expected to be a forever hospice foster with Proverbs ( like many others in our care), but God had different plans.”
Lavonne Redferrin, Proverbs 12:10 Animal Rescue’s director and founder told People: “We often step in and pull seniors, sickly and injured animals who are likely to be overlooked.”
“We are so thrilled for Poochie and know he is in great hands. Caroline Bryan has graciously given us updates on our sweet boy. Their adopting this sweet old guy will allow us the chance to save yet another.”
