Luca the Alaskan Malamute has a reputation for destroying any toy that gets in her way, except for one. Luca’s owner, Karissa Lerch, wanted a dog while in college but knew that she couldn’t afford one at the time. To tide herself over, she bought a stuffed puppy, and when she could finally afford to take care an actual dog, she gave the toy to Luca. Since then, Luca and the toy have been best buds.
“I passed the stuffed animal down to her and she has kept it by her side at all times ever since,” said Lerch online. “It’s her baby 🙂 She carries it around everywhere and always has it with her when she goes to bed.”
