Kayla Filoon was used to spending time with homeless dogs. For the past year, the 20-year-old student volunteered as a dog walker at ACCT Philly, an animal shelter in Philadelphia. But when Filoon met Russ, a quiet, 4-year-old pit bull with patchy fur, she knew there was something special about him.
Their photo together of Russ hugging his mom is going viral for the cutest reason: he is a rescue with a very rough past who wormed his way into Kayla Filoon’s heart from the first time they met. Now, he’s in his forever home with her and loving every minute of his new life.
Filoon, who is a 20-year-old college student in Philadelphia, regularly volunteers to walk dogs at ACCT Philly, a local animal shelter. Because of this job, she said she’s regularly compelled to take dogs home with her because of how cute and lovable they are. This is one of the hardest parts of working, volunteering, or even visiting at a shelter and it’s an urge that Filoon had yet to give in to until she met Russ.

When Russ entered the facility, the prospect of him recovering, let alone being adopted, was dim at most. Filoon told The Dodo, “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. They told me he was about 40 pounds when he came into the shelter.”
The 4-year-old pit bull was quiet, well-mannered, and loved humans despite the kindness they likely had not shown him in recent years. When Filoon first saw him, she took him out for a 45 minute walk and had nothing but positive things to say about him.
“He was really cuddly with me, even when we went into the yard,” Filoon said. “He seemed like such a sweet dog, and he didn’t bark at any of the other dogs.”
