Rescue Dog Can’t Stop Cuddling Every Foster Kitten His Family Takes In.

Some people were born to make sure every animal gets the love they deserve. As it turns out, some dogs have the same mission!

Raylan was rescued from a high-kill shelter. The high-energy dog had never been trained, but that didn’t worry his new family one bit! With some guidance and plenty of affection, Raylan quickly became a wonderful companion — who can even fetch a drink from the fridge on command!
