Friskie and Buddy are a very loving bonded pair of dogs. They will need to go home together as they wouldn't know what to do without each other. Both are super cuddly and enjoy getting lots of attention. Because they love attention so much, they would prefer to be the only animals in the house and have a quiet home.
