This is what thier foster Mom had to say about Abbott and Costello
Abbott and Costello ('A&C') were rescued from a high kill shelter in rural northwest Georgia. They were so scared that they were available to rescue only and weren't even put up for adoption. The nice folks at the shelter arranged to get them to my work in Buckhead where I picked them up. They were so scared that we had to take the crate apart to get to them because they cowered in the corner of the crate. That's my favorite kind of foster dog. The kind that truly needs TLC and compassion. Others may look for the dog to choose them, but the underdogs tug at my heart. These boys are just wonderful. They are my best friends and the follow me everywhere now. I've been fostering them for over 2 years now, but they've come a long way in two years' time. They love my daughter now too. It takes them longer to trust men and teenagers, and sometimes Abbott will still bark at my husband when he leaves the house, but when he sits on the couch, they will come and jump on his lap now! It's the best feeling in the world to have a terrified pitiful shell of a dog come to love and trust you - there's nothing like it, and these boys WILL come to love and trust you if you give them the time and space they need to make sure you're worthy of that trust. They sleep together in the same crate, but we feed them separately because Abbott will eat all of Costello's food. They each weigh about 15 lbs. and that fluctuates with the seasons as they are not as active in the winter - they HATE cold weather and would rather be snuggled up with their humans inside near a fire place than outside playing. They are about 4 years old now and in excellent health. They cannot be adopted to a home with small children because when Costello was adopted by himself to a family with elementary school-aged children, he did great when Mom was present, but when they tried to engage in play with him when Mom was not in the same room, Costello growled at the little boy and he was afraid of him after that, so he was returned. These boys would love to be adopted together, but it's not a requirement. Costello would be fine as an only dog, and he walks very well on lead around the neighborhood. He loved when the little boy walked him and got very excited when he saw the leash. Abbott is still quite nervous when on walks and loud sounds really spook him, so he requires a martingale collar when on lead, so he cannot 'back out' of his collar. I think Abbott would be fine in a home without Costello as long as they had another friendly dog for him to bond to. They do require a fenced yard. A&C deserve a lifetime of love and happiness where they are not just two of many foster dogs. They will blossom with positive reinforcement training to give them confidence and be rewarded for good behavior. We nicknamed them the 'Worms' because they roll over for belly rubs in ecstasy when I come home from work, and they look like wiggle worms in the grass. We've even called them Big Worm and Little Worm or Worm 1 and Worm 2. They just bask in your affection and love, and are worthy of a good home. Video to come soon.
