They say “a picture is worth a thousand words,” and it most certainly holds true for this picture of two dogs nestled together. Looking at the photo, one cannot deny seeing nothing but love.

Many animals display emotions, and man’s best friend is one. It is commonly known that dogs feel happiness, sadness, and loneliness.

So when a photo of two stray German shepherds being affectionate with one another and where they had a vulnerable look hit the internet, thousands of hearts were moved. In that single moment, a loving bond shared between the two animals was perfectly captured for all to see.

Four months later in November 2017, the duo were taken to the rescue organization in hopes the center could help find a permanent home. There was one catch though: separation was not possible.

It was apparent to staff that Gus and Laurie shared an incredible and close bond with one another.
