One of the most amazing things about canines is the unconditional love and affection they have for their owners. But there are times when the love becomes a little too overwhelming for not just the human, but also the pups!


Clingy dog breeds often follow their owners all the time, no matter where they go. These extra clingy dogs are called “velcro dogs”. They always feel the need to be right next to their owners, and that’s exactly when they are the happiest. You go the bathroom, they will follow, you go to the mail box, they will follow you.

It is a blessing to have someone love you so unconditionally, especially during such hard times.
