Thrown into a pen together with nothing but a concrete floor to lie on, the scared, young dogs had never met one another before — but that didn’t matter to them.
They had both just been brought into a high-kill shelter by animal control in Texas, and, judging by how sickly they were, their future was almost certain: They would likely be put down as the public shelter didn’t have the resources to treat them.
Noticing his pen-mate was going to lie down, Jeremiah, the small black dog, found the perfect place to cuddle, too. He sprawled out on Neal’s side, nuzzling his face into the dog’s neck.
Then, they fell asleep.
