On Monday Cheyenne spoke up for ~what she believes in~ and it HAS GONE MASSIVELY VIRAL.

"It was actually really a surprise, the amount of people that knew absolutely nothing about adoption," the teen told BuzzFeed News. "They were so surprised you could get a dog for $60.”She was also stunned and overwhelmed that her tweet went so viral. "I just kind of freaked out at first," she said.
