"Despite his newfound fame, Boof is still looking for his happy home."
Social media has proven a powerful tool for connecting adoptable animals with new owners, especially among pets who've achieved viral fame, so it's unclear why Boof has failed to find a match. Perhaps his likeness to a well-known celebrity has overshadowed the uniqueness of his own personality.
Still, internet celebrity or otherwise, Boof is far from alone in his plight. Every year, millions of dogs wind up languishing in shelters for no fault of their own - each one hoping desperately, not to be loved by millions of internet users online, but by a single person or family who'll make them a star in their hearts.
