Peyton and Riley go together like peas and carrots and stick together like two peas in a pod!!  These two have been together their entire lives and may even be father and daughter.  They are very much bonded and must be adopted together.


We rushed in to rescue these precious Pommys when their owner posted them on Craigslist with the possibility of Peyton being pregnant, as we didn't want them to fall into the wrong hands.  A month later Peyton went into heat and we couldn't be more happier that she wasn't subjected to bearing another litter of pups.




Both have the sweetest dispositions, but were obviously not socialized or cared for much in their previous home.  They need a quiet home and someone willing to help them work through their fears of this world.  It's very easy to see that they both want to break free of the mental anguish that binds them, they just need that patient, caring person to get them over the hurdle.


Peyton is approx. 4 years old and weighs 8 pounds while Riley is approx. 5 years old and weighs 12 lbs.  Both are kind, gentle and very quiet; however, Peyton does get very excited when you first come home and will bark for a few minutes to let you know how happy she is to see you.  Peyton is afraid of steps and will need carried up/down while Riley does them like a pro.  Both love the outdoors and a quiet, corner to lay in when indoors.  They have come so far with housetraining, but still require patience and consistency.


Riley was diagnosed with degenerative disc disease when a disc ruptured in his middle back.  This was surgically corrected and requires no further attention.  He has narrowed disc spaces throughout his spine and would do best in a ranch home and "scooped" up when intending to hold him, rather than being picked up under his chest.


Peyton and Riley are both crate trained, current on vaccines (rabies, distemper/parvo, and bordatella), spayed and neutered, microchipped, and have had bloodwork, fecal and heartworm tests, and dentals.  Riley has also seen a board-certified neurologist and has been MRI'd from head to toe with two spinal taps.  To adopt these special Pommys, submit on online application at  Their adoption fee is $200/each (discounted to $150/each for senior citizens 65+).
