There’s just something special about your childhood friends, the bestie you grew up with. It’s a relationship that bonds you for life. The same bond can be formed with some dogs, including Adonis and Apollo, two German Shepherds who were surrendered to a high-kill animal shelter together.
They grew up together and then were given up together after their owners could no longer care for them.
The dogs were clearly terrified, yet took comfort in each other, hugging each other while at the shelter.
The staff took photos and shared them. Fortunately, they went viral pretty much overnight. That’s when a no kill animal rescue group called A-Team Elite Rescue Dogs out of Long Island heard about Adonis and Apollo and decided to take them in.
First, they were treated for heartworms, put on a basic treatment plan, then cleared for adoption.
Shortly after that, the group posted about the dogs on Facebook, where they found a home with a woman named Jennifer.
She brought them to her home, where they now run around on acres of land with two other rescue dogs they play with.
