Devin Crouch is the proud momma to two beautiful boys, but one of them has four legs instead of two.

The first is a sweet toddler by the name of Carter--and the second, a rescued puppy by the name of Toby. Ever since Toby and Carter met, it was love at first sight. The two have been inseparable. The bond was too sweet not to share with the world, so Devin decided to start a blog chronicling the petite pair’s adventures.

She started the blog in February of 2014 and the pictures have since generated over 31,000 Instagram followers. Devin told the Daily Mail that “The bond Carter and Toby share is absolutely incredible. The first Carter and Toby photos started the day Carter came home from the hospital, when we noticed how protective Toby was over him. Toby stayed close to his new brother and would follow anyone who would hold Carter.”

This family of “four” hopes to use their newfound celebrity to shed a light on the joys of adopting rescue dogs and hopes it will inspire other families to add a new canine member to their own family. Devin posted this quote along with one of her pictures on Instagram:

 

"He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion."
