LUCKY DOGS CARRY PUP IN BACKPACKAugust 26, 2017
Kangaroos carry their young in a pouch. Humans even took note and built ways to carry kids hands-free. But considering how much we love our dogs, it was only a matter of time before pooches found a pouch.
A Vietnamese man named Tran Quoc Tien has taken it a step further, however, and the Facebook pictures have gone viral.
Tran loves his two dogs, Tony and Tiny, like children. He takes them wherever he goes, and even has a specialized backpack to carry them. But when Tony and Tiny had a litter of puppies, Tran gave the puppies to his family members and kept one for the proud parents to raise — Teddy.
But it wasn’t easy for Teddy to keep up with the mobile mutts. So Tran built a similar contraption for Teddy’s parents. With an old denim jacket, a pair of scissors, and some trial and error, Tran created a tote for Teddy.
Now he can travel with the pack — in a backpack.
Tran told TheDodo.com, “I love my dogs. They are my family.”
