Oliver, a two-year-old Chihuahua found running on the streets of California was picked up as a stray and taken to Baldwin Park shelter in Baldwin Park, California.
This stray puppy would have probably spent weeks waiting for someone to take him home, but thanks to an amazing photograph where the dog seems to be praying, little Oliver found his forever home in just a few days.
The tiny pooch arrived at the shelter on Jan. 9, 2016. Three days later, 41-year-old occupational therapist John Hwang captured the image and shared it on his Facebook page. Two days after that, Oliver found his home.
“The chihuahua was running around on the street and was going to get hit by a car,” Hwang said. “He was captured and brought to the shelter. I [went to the shelter] hoping I can take photos and tell the dog’s story.”
