It is possible that saving a dog from a shelter will turn out to be one of the best decisions you will ever make. Not only will you receive a hilarious and endearing companion, but you will also gain a lifelong friend. How appreciative a dog can be was demonstrated in the video below by the woman who got to experience it herself. Kayla Filoon is a student who enjoys volunteering at an animal sanctuary in her community.
That’s how she came to know Russ, a young puppy who was suffering from some health issues. The two were immediately attracted to each other, and the woman soon realized that they were intended to be best friends. Forever!
“He came in as a stray, and he was pretty battered up,” the young woman told The Dodo. “He was severely beaten up,” the young woman said. ‘He was missing fur on his tail and ears,’ said the trainer. He was also quite underweight. Just sitting there, staring at me, was all he was doing. And I thought to myself, “I need to get him immediately.”
As a result, she invited Russ to stay with her, allowing the dog to experience what it’s like to be at home. The dog will not stop cuddling with his new owner as a way of expressing his gratitude for her providing him with a lifelong home and showering him with love.
“One night, I’m sitting on the couch, doing my homework, and he’s trying to figure out how he can cuddle with me,” she explained. “He’s a sweetheart, to be honest.”
