Ruggles, the petite Shih-Tzu puppy, was liberated from a puppy mill and embarked on a fresh chapter in life when he met an unexpected friend. Chompers, the kitten, was discovered abandoned beneath a porch at just two days old. Witness their heartwarming first encounter in the video below.
In spite of their challenging beginnings, Ruggles and Chompers now thrive in loving, permanent homes. Ruggles even took on a special role as an official ambassador for the Cherokee County Animal Shelter, the very place that saved him. He makes regular visits to schools, enlightening children about shelter dogs and the importance of combatting puppy mills. It’s truly heartwarming!
YouTube provided this note regarding their adoptions: “You might wonder why they weren’t adopted as a pair. Initially, the shelter intended for them to go together, but Chompers (fittingly named!) turned out to be too exuberant for the delicate Ruggles. Considering Ruggles’ health issues, it was decided that it would be in the best interest of both animals to find separate, loving homes. Rest assured, they are both thriving and cherished!
