I don’t care what they say.  Nice guys DON’T always finish last . . .

A 40-year-old guy named Jason Gasparik saw a stray dog running around in traffic earlier this month in Charlotte, North Carolina.  It was a chocolate lab, and he managed to catch it.  Then he started trying to track down its owner.

First, he took it to a vet to see if it had a microchip.  And it DID, but the chip wasn’t registered to anyone.  So then he posted some photos on Facebook and a few other sites.  But that didn’t work either.

So the next day, he stood out on a street corner for three hours, holding a sign he made that said, “Do You Know This Lost Dog?”  And a photo of it went viral.

Someone who knew the dog got in touch after that.  The owner turned out to be an older guy who’d been driving around all day looking for her.

But the story doesn’t end there.  Because once the photo went viral, women in Charlotte started going NUTS for Jason.  And a few of them have already asked him out.

He says he IS single right now, but recently got out of a relationship.  So he wants to take things slow.  There’s no word if he’s accepted any of the dates yet.
