According to the statement, Halo became the mascot for the Twitter page when its owners submitted and featured her photographs on ‘WeRateDogs’, a Twitter page back in 2016. The picture featured Halo with a beaming smile on her face and holding a watermelon piece in her mouth.
The page also said that with the permission of the owners, Halo will continue to be the face of the page and hopes to continue capturing the essence of dogs in the content they put up. Concluding the statement, the Twitter page said, “Remember, it is okay to cry over a good dog every once in a while.”
