Thank you, for caring enough to consider adopting a rescued pup in need of love, respect and a warm place to lay it's head fur-ever.
LISELLE & KAYCE are Chihuahua/Mtn FeistX sisters. They have never been separated. They are 1.5yo, date of birth: ~November 22, 2015. Kayce(Black and brn brindle) weighs 11lbs while Liselle(Tan& grey brindle) weighs just 8lbs. LISELLE is very dependent on Kayce for her security. Kayce is more independent and open to gentle, kind humans. Liselle is learning to trust through Kayce's interactions with us.
They were rescued from an outdoor kennel where they had lived their entire lives. Howlin4spirit rescued and placed their daddy just 2 months prior to these 2 cutie-pie's arrival at Howlin4Spirit. They were timid and scared, never having had much interaction with humans. But, are warming up nicely, and appreciating being a more integral part of our little pack, and realizing that humans can be kind, loving and gentle and have THE MOST EXCELLENT TREATS in their hands and are willing to share them with scared little dogs(especially compared to their past diet of cheap dog food and bread).
Howlin4Spirit is looking for a kind WOMAN/retired with time and lots of love and patience to share with them. They would be best suited for a home with their own safe fenced-in back yard, and a tie-out cable line(for Liselle), Kayce is already coming to us, kissing our hands, always searching for yummy treats and a loving hug. We are working on our leash walking, slowly but surely.
NOT GOOD/confident enough around children or other M>LG dogs. Cats OK.
