Adopted Dog From The Shelter Is So Thankful That He Can Not Stop Hugging His New Owner

Kayla Filoon works as a volunteer at ACCT Philly, a Philadelphia-based animal shelter. She’s been walking the dogs for a year. Kayla enjoys her volunteer job and bonds with all of her shelter dogs, but one stray in particular has a special place in her heart.

Russ is a stray that arrived at ACCT Philly in appalling condition. The poor dog was severely underweight, had missing hair patches, and was severely battered. In addition, Russ was suffering from kennel cough. As he sat in his kennel, glaring at Kayla, the 4-year-old Pit Bull had a terrible appearance.

She decided to go for a stroll with the unfortunate-looking dog and was astonished to find that Russ was actually fairly well-behaved. He didn’t react or bark like other dogs, and he also showed a really loving side. Russ also showed that he had a rudimentary command understanding. Kayla made the decision to adopt him the next day right then and there.

Kayla felt she had to act quickly since the shelter was experiencing space challenges due to congestion, putting Russ at risk of being killed. So she eagerly filled up the papers and brought Russ home with her the next day.

Russ had been living with Kayla for less than two weeks, and images showed a well-adjusted Russ. According to the picture taken by Kayla’s aunt, he is a cuddly, darling. He and Kayla are shown on the couch together. It is so valuable that when it was shared on social media, it quickly became viral.

“One night I’m sitting there on the chair, doing my homework, and he’s trying to find ways to cuddle with me,” Kayla told The Dodo. We had another sofa open and his bed on the floor, but he refused to sleep anywhere else. So he positions himself, and I glance down, thinking, ‘Oh my god, look at him.’”

“He’s such a love bug, honestly,” she continued. I’ll be lying down, and he’ll place his head under my arm or his paw on my chest. He’ll even sleep on my breast.”

What a cute couple. Kayla hopes that the picture of the two of them together will motivate others to adopt shelter dogs and provide them with loving homes.
