The combination of local news coverage and the rediscovery of a heartbreaking letter written by his original owners finally resulted in a permanent home for Roofus, a sweet Weimaraner mix who was surrendered to a Bradenton, Florida animal shelter six years ago. 

Now 10 years old, Roofus was adopted twice since he was brought to Bishop Animal Shelter in October, 2010, but unfortunately, he was returned both times. Shelter staff recently came across a letter his original owners had included when they were forced to bring him there for financial reasons.
