Charlie won the lottery!
Meriah Jae was proud of her sister and wanted to tell the world. So she hopped on Twitter and tweeted some great before-and-after photos of her sister’s newly adopted pit bull, Charlie.
The photos, paired with Jae’s 3 simple words — adopt, don’t shop — captured the hearts of the Twitter community, who responded with more than 138,000 retweets and 350,000-plus likes.
Charlie was a natural. Photos showed the happy dog on the beach gripping a tennis ball in his mouth and a stunning closeup of him rocking a pretty, purple flower crown.
Fans began sharing their own before-and-after photos, adoption stories and messages of thanks:

Maybe it was actually Charlie’s mom who won the lottery. I think they’re both winners. “Adopt, don’t shop” is a powerful message that saves lives. Thank you for your awesome reminder, Meriah Jae!
