By now we all know and love Humans of New York (HONY), the popular Facebook page that features portraits of regular people in NYC. HoNY has brought people together many a times, and earlier this week it was no different.
When the lovely story of one New Yorker who kept putting off adopting a dog was posted on HONY’s page, it captivated users everywhere.
It continues: “…she licked it. I named her ‘Adidas’ because I wanted a running partner. But that dream ended pretty early. All she wants to do is hug and kiss and lay on you. She doesn’t care who you are. If she senses that you’re the least bit receptive to her, she’s coming right toward you. Just a few minutes ago she jumped into somebody’s wheelchair. It’s made me more of a people person. I’m always having to explain to people why she’s trying to kiss them.”
So sweet, right? Of course, dog lovers came out in droves to share their own adoption stories. Here are our favourite ones.
Are those tears welling up in your eyes? ‘Cause we’re straight up bawling.
