Dumped at a shelter together, these two dogs are inseparable

Chewbacca the 10-year-old German Wirehaired Pointer/Labrador mix and CC the six-year-old Rat Terrier lived together for years with a loving family.

But when the family had a kid who was allergic to dogs, the owners were forced to give them up.

They were taken to the Animal Rescue League of Iowa where they were seen constantly cuddling with each other. Now without their family, their inseparable bond was all they had left.

Any time you see them, CC is always sitting on top of Chewy. It was apparent that they could never be separated into different homes.

10 Of The “Most Loyal” Dog Breeds On The Planet
Giving love and support to humans is something that some dogs do better than others.

While many dogs love everyone they meet and are willing to take treats or belly rubs from anyone, the pups we found are just the opposite.

These 10 dogs are some of the most loyal breeds on the planet. They are rock steady in their loyalty to their owner no matter what.

1) Akita

When the American Kennel Club (AKC) lists loyalty to describe the temperament of the Akita, you know they mean business. The beautiful double-coated working dog of Japanese ancestry is considered hardwired in protecting those she loves. They should be socialized with other dogs and people from the time they are puppies. Their silly, fun, but dignified personalities round out the loyal Akita.

4) Beagle

This merry hound is friendly, curious and incredibly loyal. While he doesn’t mind the occasional couch potato time, this spunky pooch is energetic and merry. A fun fact about this hound: the breed standard is for 13 inches and under and another in the 13-15 inch category. No matter how you size him, these adorable dogs just want to cling to you.
