From the moment Carter Crouch was brought home from the delivery room 20 months ago, Toby, the German Shepherd mix his parents rescued, has been his best friend. “Toby stayed right next to Carter all the time,” Carter’s mom, Devin Crouch, told ABC News. “We could tell there was a bond right off the bat but we could never have imagined what it’s become.” Carter and Toby’s bond has gone viral thanks to the adorable photos of the pair Crouch posts on Instagram. “I’m just a mom who takes too many pictures of their child,” she said.. The photos of Carter and Toby in and around their Indianapolis home are often spontaneous but sometimes staged, according to Crouch, as a way to include Carter's dad while he is at work. "We try to entertain him,” she said. The pair’s togetherness starts from the moment Toby goes into Carter’s nursery to help wake him up and goes all the way through playdates and playtime at the park. “They just love to be around each other,” said Crouch.
