My name is Halo and my big brother is Deannie. My foster Mom rescued us from doggy jail where we were taken when my owner became too sick to care for us. Even though she found us in a strange environment on a cold cement pad, I was brave enough to give her kisses through the fence and she fell in love immediately. She rescued us within 48 hours of our confinement. Although my mom isn’t sure, she thinks we could be biological brothers and that we have probably lived together for all our lives (I have told her the whole story, but she needs a little work on her doggie “English”) I am a handsome 10 year-old red short-hair with a few dapple markings and weigh approx. 10LB. Deannie is a 12yr old light red short-hair, weighing about 12.5 lb (my mom says he is handsome also—however I am sure I am the best looking between the two of us). My foster mom considered adopting us and taking us to Nebraska. We do get along with other dogs, however we are very protective of our toys and she has an even older (wow!?!) partially blind dachshund who we may be a little too rambunctious to be left unsupervised with (in her large yard). We would like to be adopted together, but probably would be ok if our new home has another dog to be friends with. Also, we don’t do well with birds—we think they are food. We are kennel trained and walk well on a leash and enjoy playing with our toys. We are up-to-date on all our vaccinations and will bring our kennel, blankets, collars, and leashes with us. We love to snuggle and sleep in the big bed with our human’s at night, but also know how to sleep in the kennel.
PS: While I am happy to let my brother tell you our story, I want to add my thoughts… as I don’t think Halo even notices that I sometimes walk a little differently than he does and that steps are especially not good for me . I have a very cute bunny hop when I get a little tired, but I am exercising and getting stronger every day. My foster mom thinks that I may have had an lower back disc injury at some time in my life. I can walk up or off of a street curb without difficulty but mom avoids all other steps. I have good urine and bowel control as long as I am allowed potty breaks at 6-8 hour intervals during the day. I am a little shyer than Halo and take a little more time to trust my humans, but now my foster mom knows that I give great kisses and love to have my neck and nose rubbed after my trust is earned. Overall we are very young “seniors” and can’t wait to show our love to our new “forever” humans
