Erin Einbender and Laura Berryman were volunteering at Austin Pets Alive! on Saturday, doing a photo shoot with some of the dogs to help them get adopted. They were just finishing up working with one of the dogs when they were suddenly told about a stray dog wandering around the neighborhood — and decided to see if he wanted to become their next model.
“We were finishing up a photo shoot with one of the APA! pups when Laura’s husband called her,” Einbender told The Dodo. “He was around the corner from us and asked if one of our dog models got loose. We immediately grabbed our leashes and walked to where he was at. And there he was, a chunky meatball walking towards us on the sidewalk.”
The two women could immediately tell that the dog was friendly — and sure enough, as soon as he spotted them he came trotting over, incredibly eager to make some new friends.
