On Friday, the Humane Society of Forsyth County, in Cumming, Georgia, posted a photo of Tara on its Facebook page, showing the sweet brown dog posing next to a sign that read, "How much longer? I have been waiting patiently 719 days ... Please just come see me!!"
The picture was quickly shared over 9,000 times on Facebook. Something about Tara's deep brown eyes quickly caught the attention of Shana and David Brittain of Normandy, Tennessee - they fell in love with Tara even before they met her in person.
On Sunday, after Tara had waited for 721 days in the shelter, the Brittains adopted her. The shelter posted the incredible news on its Facebook page along with some photos of an overjoyed Tara snuggling with her new parents.
