Pluto was a character... when I could entice his attention away from his foster mom long enough. This guy was so wanting human attention that it hurt my heart. Once I saw his overbite, I was even more of a goner.
Each and everyone of the dogs in the project has something about them that has swallowed me whole. Pluto's overbite, which gives him a derpy-ness, is a great pairing with his personality. I know his best home will come along, but in the meantime, his foster family is gonna give him all the loves he's so deserving of.
