New pet parent, Emily Gleim, says she wasn’t planning on adopting a pet until her boyfriend Justyn texted her a photo of a two-year-old dog named Butterfinger that had been cared for by a Florida rescue group called Haile’s Angels and was now up for adoption at their local PetSmart store.
“It was love at first sight. I was out for lunch with my mom when Justyn’s text came through. As soon as we saw Butterfinger’s photo on Instagram, we jumped in the car and drove to the PetSmart in Gainesville to meet him,” says Gleim.
“He was so calm and sweet. We knew we wanted a smaller sized dog who was a little bit older and already house-trained, and Butterfinger was all that and more. As soon as we got there, he walked right up and started sniffing and licking us. That’s when we knew that Butterfinger was the pup for us. He needed a loving home, and now he has one, with us.”
