Must be adopted with Tessa

Tana seems to be younger of the two bonded sisters. She is about 4 years old, spayed, golden/shepherd mix and about 35-40 pounds. She was owner surrender at BARC along with her sister Tessa. When they came to the rescue they were severely abused. They were scared of humans, didn’t walk on their own, had to be lifted to take them to pee/potty, never left the crate or room, didn’t eat much and never barked! Although they cowered at human adults, they got along with dogs and kids.

After many months of pack therapy and careful handling from fosters family, Tana has improved a lot. She trusts humans and plays well with kids and other dogs. She still doesn’t like to go for walks and prefers to plays in the yard. She also voices herself!!! She definitely needs her sister Tessa all the time.

These two have to be adopted together; need to go to a family with gentle human handlers, kids and gentle dogs. They need experienced dog owners.Must be adopted with Tessa
