SARASOTA COUNTY, FL (WFLA) – Remember Rufus, the poor pup we told you about who’s been at the shelter for years? He’s found a new home today!
We told you this sad story about Roofus, the Weimaraner mix on Friday. Roofus was staying at the Bishop Animal Shelter in Bradenton. He’s been there for 6 years. Roofus been patiently waiting to find a new home but he hasn’t had any luck. Some folks gave him a shot, only to bring him back. Recently, staffers uncovered a long-forgotten letter that they hope will help him find a new family.
We aired his story Friday, and Saturday morning we got a call from the shelter. The staffers told us that a nice loving couple saw the story on News Channel 8 and decided to adopt Roofus.
We are very happy that we have helped him find a new family!
