An animal hero, by the name of Steve, has shared with the world the best Instagram account to follow for pet lovers.
His most recent feature on Humans of New York showed him holding Engelbert, an elderly chihuahua that he adopted from a local shelter, who is also the newest addition to his rescue family of 9.
“I actually went to the shelter to get another dog, but he’d already been adopted. So I decided to do a lap around the facility before I left, and I saw Engelbert. He had about ten pages of physical problems. His back legs didn’t work. His old owners kept him outside, so his ears were completely frostbitten. And he only had three teeth. So I thought if I didn’t get him, nobody else would.”
Engelbert lives with 7 other dogs, and a miniature pot belly pig, name Bikini. Together, they make up the world’s greatest rescue family, and to die for photos.
Who said elderly animals can’t be adorable?
