A pic of a two-year-old beagle in Ohio, who was rescued just two days before he was scheduled to be euthanized, has gone viral. The rescuers are Schenley and Joe Kirk who co-founded the non-profit, Hound Rescue and Sanctuary.

The priceless puppy photo—captioned “The BEST Freedom Ride Picture EVER!”—was posted on Facebook by Schenley and has been shared more than 8,000 times. It shows the the beagle, Gregory, with Joe Kirk on the ride home from the shelter.
