Riverside County Animal Services has a dog named Banjo that was rescued from some train tracks.
The little cutie was so popular that so many people went on their website to try and research the pooch, the website crashed!!
A spokesman said:
"Banjo's causing some serious technical issues."
The site still isn't up! Ha!
Banjo's story could've been one of tragedy.
Apparently, an old man tied the poor pup to train tracks and an eagle eyed engineer spotted them and pulled the emergency brake before it was too late, saving the dog's life.
Ever since the story broke, over 200 people have called the shelter, looking to adopt Banjo.
The shelter said they're going to have to whittle that number down to 10 finalists who will be interviewed so that Banjo goes to the very best home!
As for people wondering about the man who tied him to the tracks, he's a 78-year-old man who was apparently senile.
So the police let him off with a warning and released him into the custody of his family, saying he "didn't fully understand what he had done."
We're just glad that Banjo is okay and is gonna DEF be able to find a good home!
