Peyton Manning and his family recently adopted the baby dog from Animal Rescue Fund of Mississippi (ARF), a non-profit, no-kill, donation-based shelter that is one of the largest in the state. Read the story below from the Animal Rescue Foundation page on FB.
A tiny puppy who was abused and forced to live in deplorable conditions has just won the Super Bowl of adoptions.
The little two-pound puppy named Sunshine was discovered by a concerned animal lover at a county fair in Mississippi. Her owner, a carnival worker, kept Sunshine in horrible conditions and she was in bad shape.
The person was so compelled to help the pup that she bought the dog from the carnival worker and brought her to the Animal Rescue Fund (ARF) of Mississippi.
Sunshine was treated by a vet and placed with in a foster home. Luckily for Sunshine, her foster owner happened to vacation in the same area that Peyton Manning and his family were vacationing in -- and the Mannings immediately fell in love with the pup.
Once the soon-to-be Hall of Famer found out that Sunshine was up for adoption, he didn't hesitate to scoop her up and make her the newest Manning. (People)
