* One-half of a bonded sibling pair * Would do best in a home without a resident dog, or with a submissive dog Petie and Sammi were taken from their home by Police due to neglect. They are siblings and have been together all of their lives so we would like to keep them together.
Petie and Sammi are great dogs and do very well together. Due to the fact they are older dogs, they are very content to sit on the couch and spend time with their people. Sammi likes the outdoors more than Petie, while Petie likes the couch more than Sammi.
Since coming to their foster home, they have learned kennel-up and house training. They come when called and understand the word “no”. They ride in the car nicely, walk fairly well on the leash and mind fairly well over all.
Both dogs will bark when people or bikes or runners pass by the fenced yard. Sammi has more of a hound-bark and Petie has a lower-bark. Not nervous barkers, only to alert.
Petie has challenged the dominant dog for authority, however, he is in the process of learning that he is not the alpha dog in the foster home. Both dogs are affectionate (Pete is reserved initially) and easy to care for. They will interact with their people and would make amazing pets. Because of their more sedentary demeanor, they may not be the best match for an active family with small kids.
