Although a lot of people know that rescue dogs rock, there are still people who remain unconvinced. To all the doubters, I am happy to present Thor, the rescued Pug. He was adopted via the Humane Society of Pinellas. When his favorite people scheduled an engagement session with Samantha from Corner House Photography, Thor joined them for a few photos. As is often the case, when there is a dog around, this cutie stole the show.
From Samantha: “Shelby and Tyler met me in downtown Mount Dora for a cute engagement session with their Pug.
Between the sun setting and the little shops we found to use as a backdrop along the way, their session had so many stunningly sweet moments.
Thor, Shelby and Tyler’s pup, has the personality and sweetness of the absolute opposite of what you would expect his name would represent.
During our session, kids and couples came running over to pet him, which of course he soaked in every moment of – I mean it wasn’t my couple’s engagement session, just more of a doggy glamour shoot haha!
While he was the star of the show, we also had time for our couple alone. Thor headed off with Shelby’s mom for some treats at a doggie store.
A recent addition to their family, Shelby and Tyler saw Thor online while looking to adopt. Having found him on a Wednesday, and working all day Thursday, the two were worried that he would be adopted before the day was over since Pugs are quite the hot commodity. I mean, seriously, how cute are their little noses?
Tyler’s dad helped my sweethearts out by picking up Thor from the shelter and brought him over as an early Christmas gift. Falling in love instantly, Thor fit perfectly with their family.
Shelby and Tyler tie the knot next October at the beautiful Heritage Springs Country Club in Trinity, Florida!“
From Shelby: “Thor has been happily snuggling up to us and making sure we DON’T forget 5:00 feeding time. He also goes Super Pug occasionally, zipping through the house all happy and excited, his version of living up to his superhero name.”
Thor is reportedly “happy his parents are finally getting married!”
