A little puppy, abandoned in front of a dog shelter, barely two weeks old. Thursday, shelter workers held a raffle to find out who would get to adopt this adorable little guy.
This scared little pup named Buster was dropped off in front of Maricopa County Animal Care and Control. Now, he's about to get a new home.
The shelter held a lottery to decide who will adopt the abandoned puppy. There had been quite a bit of interest.
A valley couple is excited to be getting a new member of the family. They saw Buster a week ago before he was ready to be adopted.
"Couple days later we saw him on TV so we called up and found out if we could get him," says Warren Raymond.
You can see how thrilled they are to be bringing home this little guy to love.
"We got here what half an hour early. How can you resist this face!" says Sharon Raymond.
Buster was just one of many animals up for adoption at Maricopa County Animal Care And Control.
"We've called 3 or 4 different times to make sure they didn't change the adoption date so we could be here."
The puppies are adopted quickly here. But more than 100 adult dogs at the shelter have been waiting for a new home since June.
As for Buster, he's looking comfortable in the arms of his new owners. He's now settling into his new home.
Buster won't be the only animal in the house. He'll be sharing the household with four cats, two dogs and a rabbit.
