Lavonne Redferrin, Proverbs 12:10 Animal Rescue’s director and founder, shared with PEOPLE, “We pulled 18-year-old Poochie from a shelter after his family surrendered him due to becoming allergic. We often step in and pull seniors, sickly and injured animals who are likely to be overlooked.”

The Bryans saw Poochie online, sent in an adoption application with top references, and the rest is history.
