Original story of Poochie’s rescue:
Country singer Luke Bryan usually makes headlines for his hit music, but the latest arrival to Bryan’s family is making its rounds across social media. Bryan and his wife, Caroline, saw an elderly abandoned dog and knew he had to come home with them.
On the Facebook page for Proverbs 12:10 Animal Rescue, an update reads, “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…but God had different plans.”
The senior pooch was living in a foster home due to owner surrender.
Lavonne Redferrin, Proverbs 12:10 Animal Rescue’s director and founder, shared with PEOPLE, “We pulled 18-year-old Poochie from a shelter after his family surrendered him due to becoming allergic. We often step in and pull seniors, sickly and injured animals who are likely to be overlooked.”
The Bryans saw Poochie online, sent in an adoption application with top references, and the rest is history.
Have fun with your new family, including all the other dogs, chickens, cats, goats, and more at the Bryans farm in Tennessee, Poochie!
