Luke Bryan Rescues 18 Year-Old Dog

February 12, 2019



So many senior dogs that get abandoned by their families have a very difficult time ever getting adopted again.  So many times they're over looked at shelters because people don't want to deal with an old dog.  However, this story isn't one of those stories.  This is a story of an old dog that was abandoned by his family, only to hit the lottery when it comes to his new adopted family.

This is the story of Poochie, an 18-year-old dog that was pulled from a shelter after his family became allergic and surrendered him to the local animal shelter.  That's where Proverbs 12:10 Animal Rescue came in and rescued Poochie from the shelter and placed him in a foster home.  

Then Luke Bryan and his wife Carolyn heard about Poochie on social media and decided that they wanted to have him live out his days on their Tennessee farm.  That's the quick version of this happy ending story.  Looks like Poochie hit the lottery when it came to getting adopted and living his best life.


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 _____________________________________________________________ #AdoptDontShop #Adopt #Adoption #NashvilleRescue #RescuedDogs #RescuedCats #RescuedDogsOfNashville #RescuedCatsOfInstagram #FelineLove #RescueSavesLives #MusicCityCats #AvailableCatsForAdoption #RescuedDogsOfInstagram #Nashville #MusicCityDogs #AvailableDogsForAdoption #DogsOfNashville #NashvilleRescue #RagsToRiches #SpayAndNeuter #FixYourPets #MuttsOfInstagram #BeALifesaver
