The posts earned some attention, but potential adopters didn’t always show up.
“We had multiple people that had said, ‘I want him,’ then didn’t come here, and a couple other people said they’d come and meet him — but no one did,” Peters explained. “So we just kept posting, ‘He’s still here! He’s still here.’”
Finally, they received a message from northern Virginia resident Linda Snyder. Snyder had seen the post, and had a feeling that Oreo was meant to join her family.
“There was just something special about this dog that made her want to open [her] home to him,” Peters said. “She said that if he can spend the rest of his golden years walking around her 5 acres in Fredericksburg it will be the best.”
