“Bodie was listed as a Catahoula/Boxer mix, (his name was Nate at the time) and he was at a shelter in Mississippi. We sent in the application digitally, thinking we wouldn’t hear anything for a week or so.
Someone from the shelter called us two hours later and said, he’s yours if you want him.
My first instinct was, something’s wrong with him, but my husband talked to the people at the shelter and found out they had googled him and seen the trailer to his movie.
They said, anyone who made a movie like that had to have a heart.
Bodie was ours we wanted him.”
