Luke Bryan Adopts Senior Rescue Dog

Poochie's new lease on life.

By 5 months ago

This old dog had his day.

When a Nashville-area animal rescue took in an 18-year-old owner-surrendered dog from a local shelter, they figure that Poochie would be in their care as a forever hospice foster.

Turns out, the universe had other plans for this old dog.

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. After reading about Poochie on our social media, Luke Bryan and his beautiful wife, Caroline, applied and adopted Poochie this past Saturday! He is pictured here with his new mom, Caroline and his previous foster, Lacy Marie! He is loving life on the Bryan farm and soaking up all their love. Who knows, maybe Poochie will inspire a country song! Thanks, Bryans!#CherishTheOldForTheyAreTreasure www.proverbs1210rescue.org _____________________________________________________________ #AdoptDontShop #Adopt #Adoption #NashvilleRescue #RescuedDogs #RescuedCats #RescuedDogsOfNashville #RescuedCatsOfInstagram #FelineLove #RescueSavesLives #MusicCityCats #AvailableCatsForAdoption #RescuedDogsOfInstagram #Nashville #MusicCityDogs #AvailableDogsForAdoption #DogsOfNashville #NashvilleRescue #RagsToRiches #SpayAndNeuter #FixYourPets #MuttsOfInstagram #BeALifesaver

The rescue group, Proverbs 12:10, had been posting images of Poochie on their Twitter page after they picked him up from the shelter. This was something the rescue often did as older or more sickly dogs usually got overlooked.

While they planned to keep him in foster care to live out his days, country music star, Lule Bryan and his wife Caroline sent in an adoption application for Poochie.

And now, Poochie gets to live out his remaining days on the Bryans Tennesee farm with lots of room to roam and plenty of other animals to keep him company.

How’s that for a happy ending?
