These two babies are just hysterical! They play very well together & are fun to watch. Cricket will hold up her nose to get it kissed & has even given her foster mom 'butterfly' kisses! :) Buddy likes go 'grrr' talk, he wants everyone to think he's a 'rough & tumble' boy! He is a softie though, don't let his grrr talk fool you! When his foster mom fell, he was quite concerned & stayed right next to her until she got up. Hoovering close to her to make sure she was ok. He has a round squeaky toy that he just LOVES to squeak! (it will go with him). Both are starting to slowly get waists (they were a little overweight) & are doing excellent on their foods. :) They will make someone wonderful pets!
Meet Cricket & Buddy. they are mother and son, bonded pair that require a home together.
They ended up in rescue through no fault of their own. Their elderly owner had to rehome them due to the fact she can no longer care for them properly and is moving into a place she couldn’t take them.
Buddy had bladder stone surgery earlier this year and requires a special diet to help prevent more stones from forming. He should have his urine checked occasionally to make sure he’s doing well.
Cricket had a cyst on her tummy and is currently on antibiotics for it.
Both are current on vaccines, house trained, on heart worm preventative, and well loved dogs.
They are used to adults and a quieter household however, the former owner said they do love to run and play but is not sure how they will do with children. Therefor, they will not be placed in a home with younger children.
Cricket is not quite 7 (6 years & 10 months) and Buddy is 6 years and 2 months.
If you are interested in adopting this darling pair of kids, please put in an application for adoption.
