Taking a dog from a shelter can be one of the most rewarding decisions you’ll ever make. Not only will you gain a hilarious and adorable companion, but you will also gain a lifelong friend. The woman in the video below had the opportunity to experience firsthand how thankful a dog can be. Kayla Filoon is a student who likes to help out at an animal sanctuary in her neighborhood.
That’s how she met Russ, a young dog with some medical issues. The two hit it off right away, and the woman quickly thought they were supposed to be best friends. Forever
“He was terribly battered up when he came in as a stray,” the young woman told The Dodo. On his tail and ears, he was missing fur. He was also really frail. He was just sitting there, staring at me calmly… And I thought to myself, “I need to get him right now.”
As a result, she invited Russ to stay with her, giving the dog a taste of what it’s like to be at home. The dog won’t stop cuddling with his new owner to demonstrate how much he loves her, giving him a forever home and showering him with love.
She explained, “One night, I’m doing my homework in the chair, and he’s trying to find ways to cuddle with me.” “Honestly, he’s such a love bug.”
