Kayla Filoon, a 20 year old student, volunteers at her local dog shelter. One day Russ the pit bull came in and was look worse for wear.
“He came in as a stray, and he was really beat up. He was missing fur on his tail and ears. He was also terribly skinny.” she told The Dodo.
“He was just sitting there calmly, staring at me… And I thought… I need to take him now.”
So that's exactly what she did!
“Any dog had a chance of being put down, especially the ones who were sicker, and Russ was definitely one of them.”
Pictures of Russ cuddling Kayla were uploaded to Facebook by one of her friends where they have since done viral with thousands of shares.
“One night I’m sitting there on the chair, doing my homework, and he’s trying to find ways to cuddle with me, he’s such a love bug, honestly.”
Have a look at Kayla and Russ' adorable relationship in the photos above.
