Is there anything in the world better than one dog taking another dog under its wing?! No. No, there is not.
That’s why we’re falling in love with Piper, a pit bull who adopted a foster puppy as her very own.
The puppy, Charlie, ended up in a shelter at the young age of 2 months after his owner surrendered him. He was sweet and vulnerable, but he desperately needed a warm, comfortable home. So Kristina Helfer, a volunteer at the shelter, opted to take him in as a foster dog.
That’s where Charlie met Piper, Kristina’s own pit bull.
“Charlie’s connection with Piper was immediate,” Kristina told the Dodo.
“The second they met, Piper just became his mom.”
Piper licked Charlie, tolerated his endless puppy shenanigans, and even let him attempt to suckle her. Under Piper and Kristina’s guidance, Charlie learned all of his dog manners, like how to walk on a leash. Then he departed for his forever home.
Four years later, the two dogs finally reunited for a heartwarming play session that might just make you sob a little. No big deal.
