He is aware that he appears attractive. 💅
With the weather in Minnesota turning colder in November, Nick Greatens and his girlfriend found themselves spending more time indoors. To fill the time, they decided to attempt two new popular hobbies: puppy caring and crocheting. Greatens had no idea that these two interests would soon become inseparable.
Ruff Start Rescue provided Greatens and his partner with two bonded senior foster Chihuahuas, Agnarr and Yelena. The two Chihuahuas had been rescued from a hoarding problem and were wary of their new humans.
“At first, they were quite hesitant and we couldn’t even touch them,” Greatens told The Dodo. “But after a couple of days, they opened up.” “They can’t get enough cuddling now.”
Agnarr was particularly nervous, but as the weeks went, he and Greatens began to bond. “Agnarr would like to touch me every minute of every day,” remarked Greatens. “We’ve become quite close.”
Greatens was well aware that the bonded duo would have difficulties in finding a home. They were not just older, but they also had to go to a home together. “They’re emotionally dependent on each other,” Greatens explained. “They spend the most of the day snuggling and resting on the sofa.”
He described Yelena as a “calm old lady who just wants to sleep.” “Agnarr is a cantankerous old guy who enjoys defending his territory, although he barely weighs 7 pounds and has one healthy tooth.” Not too frightening.”
Greatens’ crocheting abilities grew as his attachment with the dogs improved. Greatens crocheted during business meetings to keep his hands occupied and his mind clear, but he wasn’t ready to commit to a large project just yet.
“I’m too impatient right now to create a human sweater,” Greatens added. “The obvious first step was to knit little sweaters for the rescued Chihuahuas.”
He believed that the custom sweaters would not only keep the older dogs warm, but would also assist them in finding a permanent family.
Agnarr could see he looked good in his new clothes and enjoyed the comfort it provided. “Agnarr is quite thin, and it gets cold in our flat in Minnesota,” Greatens explained. “I believe he appreciates the sweater.”
“On the other side, he dislikes the headgear,” he added.
The elder puppies may have had a difficult existence, but you’d never know it by looking at them. “They’re now the best-dressed dogs in town,” Greatens added.
Agnarr and Yelena were adopted together after months of searching for a family to spend their golden years with, thanks to their foster father’s adorable outfits. And their adoring forever family ensures that they will continue to be town trendsetters.
