Meet Lottie the border collie, and Grizzly the German shepherd. Lottie was adopted when she was only 4 months old. From the very beginning, Taylor knew that Lottie was going to eventually need a sibling, and a year later, Grizzly became a part of the family at just seven weeks old.
Sadly, Grizzly spent the first few weeks of his life as a stray but since being adopted, Lottie has done everything she can to help him feel loved. In an interview with BuzzFeed Canada, Taylor describes the dogs’ relationship as a “storybook” friendship. She goes on to say, “Lottie and Grizzly have been inseparable since day one […] Lottie truly believes Grizzly is her own puppy.”
It might be hard to tell just by looking at her, but Lottie is actually a trained show dog. Though she has been taught hundreds of tricks, the story behind her hugging Grizzly is one of pure affection. At first Grizzly wasn’t sure what was going on. Now when I ask Lottie who her best friend is, you can even catch Grizzly getting ready for the hug and leaning into her.”
