Helloooooo nice person! We’re Fred and Ethel; who are you? You say you're looking for a pair of seniors??? That's amazing! Because we are a bonded pair AND we are seniors. Please read on to learn more about our personalities.
Fred: I’m a pint-sized dynamo who has swagger in his walk. I enjoy exploring the yard and prefer snoozing under blankets in my kennel or on the couch. I’m all about love and cuddling. I am a little cautious around people and kids. But don’t be alarmed….I’m quick to warm-up to strangers and kids. I also get along with big and small dogs.
Ethel: I’m the granddame. I need a house full of soft beds, people who like snuggles and of course the ever crucial yummy treats (I’m working very hard to get my girlish figure back, so the treats are at a minimum). I get along with dogs and people I have met here, including respectful children of all ages. I am a mellow gal who enjoys a snooze in the sun. I also enjoy my nightly stroll in the yard with Fred.
Note: Ethel went to the vet for a routine dental and during her pre-op exam the vet palpated an abdominal mass. An x-ray revealed a mass on her spleen so she underwent a spleenectomy. Ethel's splenic tumor was made up of mixed cells. Because the tumor is metastatic and her life expectancy is unknown Little Paws will waive her adoption fee as well as Fred’s so they can be adopted together.
For additional information please contact my foster mom Kelly (Kelly.Blackstock@precisionac.com)
The Adoption fee for Fred & Ethel will be waived to an approved adopter. If they are adopted over the Maryland state line there will be a $45.00 charge (for each dog) for a health certificate (required by law). If they are adopted in New England there is an additional $135 fee (for each dog) to help cover the transport of each dog to New England.
If you see a furbaby that is a match for your family, don’t let distance stand in the way of your adoption. LPDR can work with you to have a volunteer transport to assist with transportation or refer you to a paid transport.
