Lucy and Sully were both brought into a shelter within days of each other. Alone with little hope, they gravitated towards each other and became instant best friends. These two dogs had uncertain backgrounds, but what was a sure bet is that they needed each other. These two dogs knew that when it came time for one to be adopted, that both had to go together. The pair went into fostering together, and their bond grew every day.
Alaina Brinton had lost her senior dog and after a few months had decided to start looking for a puppy. She came across Lucy’s picture and was smitten. When Brinton contacted the shelter, they informed her that Lucy was being fostered with another pup and perhaps she could look at him too. Brinton didn’t have any plans on adopting two dogs but thought it wouldn’t hurt to look at both.
“It was obvious Sully was looking to Lucy to show him what things were and weren’t ok,” Brinton said. She could see just how close these two canines had become and didn’t have the heart to break them up. She could have found a dog that didn’t have a buddy, but Brinton fell head over heels with both dogs. Seven years later, Lucy and Sully are still best friends and do almost everything together. They found each other in hard times and are now enjoying living a loving life together!
