"As all of you know, my 11.5 year old Golden, Chip, ran off three weeks ago, presumably to die. I've missed him terribly. Well, fast forward to this morning... my students presented us with this beautiful, 8-week old AKC Golden. Everyone, meet our newest family member, Clementine!" wrote Mr Rogers in a post on November 17, which has since gone viral with over 1,300 reactions.

"Coach Rogers doesn't have children so his dog was like his child," said Haleigh Moss, one of the students at the school to ABC News. "He treats us like we're his own children and he does so much for us. We just wanted to do something great for him in return."
Mr Rogers now plans to make a donation to the senior class fund to repay the students for their generosity.
