Rescuing a dog from the shelter can turn out to be one of the best decisions to ever make. Not only to get a funny and adorable companion but to also win a loyal friend for life. The woman in the video below got to feel it on her own skin just how incredibly grateful a dog can be. Kayla Filoon is a student and likes volunteering at a local animal shelter
That’s how she first met Russ, a young dog who had some health problems. The two immediately hit it off, and soon after, the woman decided they were meant to be best buddies. Forever!
“He came in as a stray, and he was really beat up,” the young woman told The Dodo. “He was missing fur on his tail and ears. He was also very skinny. He was just sitting there calmly, staring at me… And I thought… I need to take him now.”
So she took Russ at her place and the dog got the chance to taste how be at home feels like. To show his new owner just how much he appreciates her giving him a forever home and showering with love, the dog won’t stop cuddling with her.
“One night I’m sitting there on the chair, doing my homework, and he’s trying to find ways to cuddle with me,” she said. “He’s such a love bug, honestly.”
