"Special thanks to my rescue friends Traci Totino and Dione Woodward Sackman for helping me get this grateful doggy out of the shelter and on his way home with the help of Pilots N Paws via Jeff Chipetine! Amazing help on all ends and Jeff is a trooper and we couldn't be more grateful," Grateful Doggies Rescue Family wrote on Facebook.
