Brady ‘s adoption was a piece of cake.

The show first aired on Dec. 3, and Tampa, FL, resident, William Soares, was watching. He and his wife had lost their beloved Australian Shepherd mix two years ago. After seeing the Cake Boss, he decided the time was right to add a new pet to the family. He logged on to Petfinder to see if there were any Australian Shepherds for adoption in his area.

The Humane Society of Tampa Bay had a puppy,” William says. “My wife and I went to meet Mickey (now Brady) and took him home that night.”
