According to Kayla, Russ loves to cuddle up close to her all the time. He’s a bonafied hugger! The affectionate pup tags along with Kayla on trips and sometimes hangs out with her on campus too. Drawing attention to Russ also helped drum up attention for other shelter dogs who need loving forever homes.

Thank goodness Kayla’s volunteer work led her to rescue Russ from a lesser fate. Both of them charmed one another, and Russ’s personality begs to challenge the notion that dogs just tolerate human hugs. He’s definitely feeling and giving the canine love!

And to all you dog owners out there, go ahead and keep expressing your love with cuddles and hugs. Who wouldn’t need one every so often?
