Devin and Jake Crouch adopted their dog Toby in June 2011. Their son, Carter, came into their lives nearly a year and a half later. And from the very beginning, the bond between the boy and this adopted dog was unbreakable.
The Indianapolis couple decided to start an Instagram account as a way to document the adorable friendship between baby and beast. Now, the account has nearly 20,000 followers and fans all over the world can’t get enough of the photogenic pair.
Devin told the Daily Mail that Toby was protective of his human brother from the moment Carter came home from the hospital. “Toby stayed close to his new brother and would follow anyone who would hold Carter,” she told reporters.
In the two years since the Crouch family started to document Carter and Toby’s bond, Toby has gone from being the boy’s protector to being his playmate and his closest companion.
