A hot guy trying to reunite a lost dog with its owner is drawing some†unexpected attention from the ladies.
40-year-old Jason Gasparik saved the chocolate lab after she was found running through a busy road in¬†Charlotte, North Carolina. During his heroic and selfless effort to reunite ‚ÄėRoxy‚Äô with her family,¬†Gasparik stood on a street corner holding a cardboard sign for three hours.
Jason‚Äôs simple sign read:
‚ÄúDo you know this lost dog????‚ÄĚ
‚Ä¶with arrows pointing to Roxy.

According to¬†People, local photographer Eben Adrian stumbled upon the scene and shared a photo of Jason and Roxy on the sidewalk that went viral.
Thanks to the heartwarming image blowing up on social media, Roxy and her senior citizen owner were eventually reunited.
Social media has a pretty bad reputation, but this time, it saved the day.
Beautifully heart-warming x— Marie Mitchell (@MarieMitchell3) March 9, 2019
Gasparik, who‚Äôs recently single, told¬†People¬†that he‚Äôs getting serious attention from random women after saving Roxy ¬ó but also said he‚Äôs taking it slow:
¬ďOne lady offered to shelter us both! I¬ím still trying to digest everything. It was a whirlwind of a weekend. It was pretty cool to see the power of social media.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúSo often it¬ís so much bad stuff and in this case it was such a positive thing. It was so nice to see how many people were so willing to help find Roxy¬ís owner.¬Ē
People on social media are totally smitten with Jason‚Äôs heroic efforts.
