Rocky's loyalty and capacity for love were clear to everyone who heard his story, and, thankfully, his heartbreaking photo caught the eye of a new family. Rocky was adopted and went to his new home last week. (According to volunteers, Cupcake also found a home.)
Rocky's life was saved in the nick of time, but there are thousands of dogs who are just as loyal, loving and sweet who are still waiting for new families to spring them from crowded shelters. If you're ready to add a rescue dog to your family, search for adoptable pets on Adopt-a-Pet.com.
