Orphaned Doxie & Poodle pals need home

A Vietnam vet who lived alone with his two small dogs died. No one even noticed he had died for at least a week when the mail started accumulating. Animal Control was called to pick up the dogs. With no family and no where else for the dogs to go, they were taken to the local shelter that is trying to rehome them together. The dogs were microchipped so we got some information from that.

BEARThe gray poodle's name is Bear and he is estimated to be 10-12 years old. He was matted and smelly, so the shelter took him to a groomer where he was shaved and bathed. Bear is outgoing and likes to explore the fenced back yard. His back legs are stiff which could be from the matting or his age, but he gets around just fine.

PEANUTThe red dachshund is a purebred female, tattoo in ear. She has a very long registered name, but the owner called her Peanut. She will turn 10 in June. She is very active and a little busybody, can't stay in one place for too long, unless of course it's for a back scratching.

The shelter has vaccinated them with DA2PPV, nasal bordetella and Strongit dewormer

Do you know of anyone that could give these two seniors a home? Please contact Carla at
