Declan and his mom Drew were brought to the shelter when they were found as strays. Declan is about 5 months old, up to date on vaccines and weighs 20 lbs. His mom is about 2 years old and weighs 30 lbs, so Declan will probably not get much bigger than that. Declan and his mom are initially nervous around new people, but they quickly warm up. They are better with women than men, but once they are comfortable with a woman, they will let men pet and touch them if the woman is around. They lived with children previously so they should be fine with kids, but we do recommend a meet and greet to be sure they will all get along! Both mama and son are a bit barky with other animals, but could learn to get along in a positive and consistent environment. Both Declan and Drew will be altered before joining their forever homes. They do not have to be adopted together but they can be for a discount!
