This is a special request for two little dogs who have grown to love and depend on one another. Please read their stories. We know there is a special home together for them...
Both were abandoned by their owners and left on the streets to die. Patches was severely neglected and Holly appears to have been abused. Patches' hair was so long he couldn't walk, he was found emaciated, covered in stickers, burrs, dirt clods and even maggots. With his eyes completely covered, he lost an eye. The eye socket even had stickers in it. Although doctors could find nothing wrong with his intact eye, he is unable to see.
Last year Holly and Patches received a Christmas gift beyond their dreams; to have a home and one filled with love. A day after Christmas both dogs were both flown from Fresno to Napa to their new (Foster) home.
When Holly got off the plane, she was so frightened she was covered in feces, urine, vomit and didn't stop shaking and whimpering for several days. Nor could she eat or drink. She was afraid of everyone. At night she would run through the house crying. In order to help her and Patches in their new environment, they slept together in a crate. Holly stopped crying and Patches didn't feel so alone in his dark world.
Patches had to adjust living in a house. He had to learn not to pee in the house and to use a doggy door. Fortunately, since Holly was his companion, he would follow her everywhere and he learned to potty outside. Over time, the two learned it was okay to play, too. The two became best buddies, helping each other adjust to their new world. A world filled with love.
Both dogs love being near their Foster mama and get along well with three of their Foster dog sisters. However, they think cats are for chasing. Although, both are loving and faithful companions, Holly is still frightened of children and some men. Therefore, she can only be placed in a home without children and cats.
Ideally, Holly and Patches will find a home where they can stay together. They will flourish in an environment with lots of love, patience, and redirection when needed. They are both inside dogs and sleep well in a crate. In fact, Holly knows when it's bedtime and when she runs to bed Patches follows. They are very, very special and are looking for a very special forever home together.
Holly is Poodle/terrier and Patches is a Shih Tzu/Llaso Apso. They both require regular grooming.
Please email Linda at firstname.lastname@example.org about meeting these two.
