Precious is 8 years old (approx. DOB tbd), female, 53 lbs., vetted, is or will be spayed, and micro-chipped. These pups were found in a home where their owner had passed away; Precious was laying next to her owner to the end. At the shelter: “They are traumatized here in the shelter. They are just now starting to stand up in the kennel where they are housed together. No one in the family has come to claim them. Precious has decided she likes us and is full of tail wags and kisses. Rufus is more cautious. They both keep their kennel very clean, which always makes us think they are completely house trained. We have coaxed him outside, finally, and the change in him was truly amazing; he loved being out on a leash.”

They both have been losing some much needed weight! We prefer this pair adopt to a home together; they are very bonded and have been through a lot of loss and we do not want to subject them to any more. They are well behaved, very sweet, get along with other dogs, no cats please (like to chase), have low-medium energy, and are quiet pups! Stay turned as Precious and Rufus are new rescues!
