This week we decided to share a story that touched our hearts, so I hope you will forgive us for our not so "wordless" post. These two senior dogs have spent their entire lives together. Now their owner, due to unknown circumstances, has to part with them. The owner doesn't want to put them into a shelter or rescue, so is trying to find them a home. So if you know anyone who might be able to take these two, please forward them the info or link them here. Thanks!
From Old Dog Haven:
Pepper and Layla are dogs who have lived together for almost their entire lives. Pepper is a 45-pound likely yellow Labrador/Rottweiler mix who is 12 years old. Layla is a 40-pound girl guessed to be Shepherd/Alaskan Husky mix who is also 12 years old. The girls have spent most of their life outdoors but have been brought inside during cold weather at night. According to their lifelong owner, Pepper can go through the night without pottying but Layla should have access to outdoors for a potty break at night. Both girls have some arthritis as to be expected for their age so a home without many steps would be best for them. T hey do not require much exercise but do really enjoy getting out to sniff and explore like all dogs do. They are said to be OK around other dogs, have never been exposed to cats and are good with respectful kids age 7 and up. This gentle, loving pair would love a home together where they can live indoors. If a home cannot be found for
both the owner will allow splitting them up. Pepper and Layla need a home VERY SOON . They are posted for their owner in Federal Way., WA
Email us at email@example.com to be put in contact with the owner. Local only, no transports.
Nothing negative, please. We would like to find these two a home together.
ODH has not met these dogs; we urge prospective adopters to do their own evaluation.
