Hi, we are two purebred senior Dachshunds named Yoshee and Yohaun who were adopted early in life. Unfortunately, our "mom and dad" divorced and we stayed with "dad" although he was allergic to us. The next wife who came along didn't want any part of us so we were put into the garage where we've lived for the last several years with little attention or affection. In fact, we never even got fresh air and were rarely taken out of the garage.
Our humans bought a new house and the new wife did not want us coming to the new place so, consequentially, we were going to be surrendered to Atlanta animal control who would have put us down because of our ages.
We were rescued and fostered by a couple who got us vetted, but cannot keep us. Their one dog does not like us, and has tried to kill one of us.
We are what humans refer to as "bonded dogs" as we only had each other to rely on through the most difficult of times. We love each other desperately, and look out for each other through all that we have been through. We love to snuggle at night together in our crate, and follow each other everywhere we go. We also cry when we are separated. We HAVE to be adopted together since we are a bonded couple.
I'm Yoshee: I am a female long haired dachshund, super cute and very affectionate, who is about 8 years old. I am a little uneasy for the first hour after meeting you but then I quickly warm up, and you are my best friend. I will literally hop straight up in the air to try to get you to pick me up and hold me, because there is nothing in life better than being held by my human. I love to be given attention and held and I love long walks with my best friend and my love Yohann. We love to walk on a leash together (I like to let him think he is the one who is leading). I am submissive in natureand like to share a crate with Yohaun so I can look after him properly. I will probably bark the first few nights when I am crated because I am scared and need to get used to the new environment, but then, when I know I am safe, I am pretty quiet. I can't sleep unless I am in the same crate with Yohann.
I am Yohaun - I'm about 10 years old and I am very sure of myself. I take care of my best friend Yoshee, and always protect her, since she was all I had living in the garage all those years. We are okay with other dogs, as long as they don't stand in the way of my kibble allotment. I love to be held, like a baby, and will even make "piggy" noises, letting you know how much I enjoy the love and attention. I love walks with my Yoshee and my human. I walk so much better (and with so much confidence) on a harness as opposed to just a regular leash. We will make a wonderful addition to any family, and love to be held and cuddled.
If you are interested in adopting the pair, please complete an application and ask for them by name - YOHAUN & YOSHEE SCAS - BONDED PAIR!
