3 men who were heading to a local football match decided to drop by at an animal shelter on their way. One of the men, Luiz Salles, wanted to adopt a dog but was unsuccessful in finding a suitable dog to adopt. However, Luiz and his friend, John Hwang would meet Lua at the shelter in Southern California.
John often goes to local animal shelters to take photos of dogs in need. One of them was Lua. Luiz had immediately fell in love with Lua the moment they met.
Lua had been at the shelter for 2 months and suffers from a degenerative hip injury so she had trouble getting adopted.
Lua did not let that deter her though, she happily greeted the 3 men when they met her.
