Meet Delaware & Kyra, the hugging homeless pit bulls

  • A photo of the dogs hugging has gone viral online
  • The picture came from Fulton County Animal Services in Georgia
  • Kyra, Delaware and all their friends need homes

Kyra and Delaware are pit bull mixes who are staying at Fulton County Animal Services in Atlanta, Georgia. They need a home! A shelter worker snapped a picture of them hugging in the pound and it went viral. Karen Hirsch, communications director for Lifeline Animal Project, which helps run the shelter, says people often call, but don't follow up about adopting. Kyra and Delaware have been at the shelter for three months, which she says is a very long time. Hirsch encourages people to visit their local animal shelters. She wants people to know that most pit bulls are playful and cuddly. And there are also all kinds of other dogs, including purebreds, waiting for their forever home. Watch this video to see the famous pups in action.
