Pro hero Bakugou finds a puppy in an abandon shed in the middle of a forest he chased villains into. It’s a small thing, barely the size of his palm, all skin and bones as it shivers almost violently from the brisk night air.
He takes it home, bathes it and feeds it, watches the way it mush it’s snout into the plate and scarf the food down in breaths almost; poor thing, must’ve been their first actual meal in days…
He cleans the pup up yet again, and as he wipes at her (he found out it’s a little lady) paws, Bakugou grumbles under his breath that she’s only staying for the night because it’s late and it’s freezing outside, first come tomorrow and he’s taking her to a shelter where she’ll be adopted by a more loving and present owner. Probably won’t even be in there that long with how cute she is.
But it just takes one session of combing the bristle fur of the small pup’s body, one small nip at his fingers in appreciation for what he’s done so far, waking up the next day to her cuddled by his side, a tiny ball curled up next to him for heat- Bakugou decides right there that he’s keeping her.
Files in all the paperwork and gets her all the required shots, buys her a pretty leather collar with rubber spikes on it for show, drives to the nearest pet shop to blow his credit card on expensive chew toys and treats and beddings. Bakugou now comes home to his adorable pup bulldozing herself onto his legs, jumping higher than bunnies with excited yaps and barks because she missed him all day. He laughs at the way she nips and rubs at his hands and playfully nags for the growing pup to knock it off despite him holding onto her front paws and “dancing” around with her. Absolutely chubs her up with food and love, and every day ends with her hopping into bed with him, getting cozy by his side and laying her head on his chest, a soft content chuff fanning his face as he pets her one last time with soft whispers of Goodnight.
And then one day, you (a veterinarian and Bakugou’s long time crush) come back from your trip abroad and decide to visit him on his day off; only to freeze stiff on your tracks at the sight of his pet in the living room, now fully grown and peacefully napping on her pink puppy bed, and slowly turn to Bakugou with a look of what can be described as alarming panic.
“Bakugou, why do you have a wolf in your house?”
