Puppies are adorable – that’s just a given. It’s the reason so many people are eager to adopt them, even though they can be shoe-chewing terrors too.

Of course, as they grow, we love them even more. They’re great companions, best friends, and loving partners in crime, even if they always seem to have energy when we don’t.

The whole journey of owning a dog is rewarding (if you’re a good, responsible owner or foster, of course). And when we compare photos of them as babies to the ones of them all grown up…well, just take a look and see if there’s a single one that doesn’t make you say “AWW.”
