People from all around the world started writing to the shelter offering to give the poor pup a home. Jessica Lynn Howard, who had adopted two other Chihuahuas from the shelter in the past, was one of those people.
"I saw Jan’s Facebook post, along with the rest of the world," Howard told The Dodo. "My husband Tim and I were lying in bed and it ... brought me to tears. Without hesitation I showed Tim and I said, 'I have to go get him.'"
Tim didn't have to think about it for more than a second: "Go get him," he said.
First thing the next morning, Howard got in the car and drove three hours to the shelter to pick up Scooter and bring him home.
