Filoon has six housemates, and luckily, they adored him, too. Russ took a little while to get used to his new home. He slept a lot because he was still getting over his kennel cough.
It didn’t take long for Russ to love his new life, especially with his new mom, Filoon. “He always has to be close to me,” she said.
“One night I’m sitting there on the chair, doing my homework, and he’s trying to find ways to cuddle with me,” Filoon said. “There was a whole other sofa open, and we had his bed on the floor, but he didn’t want to lie anywhere else. So he ends up positioning himself, and I look down, and I think, “Oh my gosh, look at him.'”
Filoon’s put the photo on social media. The image quickly went viral. Filoon hopes the photo will inspire others to adopt shelter dogs.
“He’s such a love bug, honestly,” Filoon said. “I’ll be lying there, and he’ll put his head under my arm, or his paw over my chest. And he’ll even lay on my chest.”
“I was worried that when I brought him home, his attitude might change,” she said. “But he’s still the same relaxed, I’ll-lay-down-and-cuddle-with-you kind of dog. He’s probably one of the most grateful dogs I’ve ever seen.”
