Backstreet boys

See Backstreet Boys adorably pose with puppies up for adoption in Nashville

The Backstreet Boys took time out of their busy touring schedule to hang out with some puppies during a recent stop in Nashville.

AJ McLean, Nick Carter, Howie Dorough, Brian Littrell and Kevin Richardson met the Nashville Humane Association while they were in town for their DNA World Tour last week hanging out with some of the organization’s cutest new members, a litter of 9- to 10-week-old shepherd cross puppies, all named after each of the Backstreet Boys. A sixth pup, named Millennium after the band’s 1999 album of the same name, completed the litter, People.

Each of the members posed for adorable photos with the pups, which the Humane Society shared on its Facebook page alongside a witty version of the group’s 1997 mega-hit “Everybody (Backstreet’s Back)”.

“As you can see from the photos in this article, the experience was larger than life for everyone involved,” the shelter wrote.

The post continued: “Now it’s time to stop playing games with these puppet hearts and show them the meaning of NOT being alone…If there was ever a time to have 6 degrees of separation ( plus unconditional love) from a Backstreet Boy… Now is your chance! And we’re all sure you want it that way. Because all these puppies promise they’ll never break your heart.

Most of the puppies, with the exception of AJ and Howie, are up for adoption from Tuesday (September 13). The last two should be available next week.
