Chester’s story took the internet by storm last April – this sweet Pitbull had been waiting in an animal shelter to be adopted for five years, when the manager of the North Fork Animal Welfare League in the US posted a picture of him on the League’s Facebook page that changed the dog’s life forever.
The picture instantly went viral with over 6,000 shares, leading to Chester having his own Facebook page (raking up 13,000 ‘Likes’ as I write this). Thanks to this abundant exposure on social media, the perfect family finally heard of Chester and immediately contacted the League to discuss his adoption.
Chester is now living happily in his new home, and the five years he spent at the animal shelter will soon become a distant memory; quickly erased by belly rubs and fetch games!
Congratulations Chester, the whole DogBuddy team wishes you a great new life!
