Andy also seems to hope that the fame of his Gracie greeting video will help raise awareness for animal shelters and the importance of adopting pets. He wrote in the caption to the clip, “If you ever want to get a dog, go to the pound. Pound dogs will always appreciate what you did for them. Save a life, adopt a mutt. Mixed breeds rule (Gracie is half Corgi, and a bunch of others, I’m sure).”

He then added, “Gracie was on doggie death row; she had been there for four months when we got her. She was days away, and she’s been the best dog and a vital part of our family for the past five years. It’s funny that a little dog that was found abandoned in a pen in West Virginia, completely neglected, could put a smile on so many faces.”
