The story behind this adoption is what love ‘stories’ are made of. Russ the pit bull was rescued by an amazing person.
Kayla Filoon is a student at Temple University in Philadelphia Pennsylvania. In her spare time she volunteers at a nearby animal shelter. Kayla walks the dogs and talks to them.
One day she met a pit bull named Russ. He was just setting quietly in his kennel, while the other dogs around him were barking and jumping on the fences. If you have been in a shelter you know how noisy these guys can be.
It was Russ’ turn for a walk. Within 5 minutes Kayla said she fell in love with this guy. Even though he had a bloody tail, kennel cough, eye infection and was malnourished, it was love at first sight. She helped give Russ a special bath for his patchy hair. Then he went for car rides and received special treats.
“My mom thought I was kidding because I always fall in love with the dogs that I take out – it’s hard not too” Kayla says. She decided right then to adopt Russ. He probably would have been euthanized due to overpopulation and an undesirable dog.
When Russ went home he could not stop hugging Kayla. He would not lie anywhere else but next to her. He had to be with his new parent as much as possible. In the video below you can just feel the love this dog has for Kayla.
What a beautiful love story. Please like and share this video and maybe it will inspire someone to adopt a shelter animal too.[mashshare]
