As anyone who's ever had a German Shepherd can tell you, they are truly amazing dogs with big hearts. That's probably why German Shepherds Gus and Laurie, who have bonded with one another, have stolen hearts all around the world.
The pups have been together their whole lives, found as stray three-month-olds, and they've been living in someone's barn ever since. Now seven months, they've been taken in by Shenandoah Shepherd Rescue, a rescue organization in Virginia.
"They've only ever known each other. They were found as strays at three months old and have since lived in someone’s barn," wrote the organization. "They're around 7 months old now and we are so hopeful that we can find someone to keep these two together. If you're looking for a bonded pair, look no further."
Shenandoah Shepherd Rescue posted the cutest photos of the two best friends to go with the adoption announcement. Those photos have gone viral and been shared over 16,000 times. People just can't get enough of the cuddled cuties and there's already tons of interest in adopting them.
"We have had an overwhelming response to this post," wrote the organization. "If you are interested in Gus and Laurie please apply at shenandoahrescue.org/adoption-process. These pups are pending cat and kid testing and have arrived at their foster in Virginia."
It will likely be a few weeks until they're ready to be adopted.
"We have been getting a lot of inbox questions about this pair! Let me try to answer them here. The adoption fee is $325 each. They must be adopted together," Shenandoah Shepherd Rescue wrote. "They just arrived at their foster today in northern Virginia so we don't know much about them yet. They are not aggressive but are in need of socialization."
They'll also have to be spayed and neutered before going to a forever home. It's unknown if they are full German Shepherds or a mix.
