One home needed for two sweet dogs


What could be better than rescuing one dog in need of a forever home? How about rescuing TWO! Tootsie and Marley came in together as owner surrenders back in October. This bonded pair is hoping to find their forever home together soon. They’ve lived their whole lives together and really bring out the best in each other. When they were at their foster home together before they were available for adoption, neither had an accident in the house and they were inseparable! Each dog has a very different personality but together, they compliment each other so well.

Tootsie is the older of the two. She is a 10-year-old Shar-pei mix with a sweet wrinkled forehead and a calm personality. She’s a bit shy at first but once she warms up she is very easy going and would be a great companion. She’s polite, gentle, and easy to walk on a leash. Even though her muzzle is a little grey, she loves being outside and enjoys nice long walks with our volunteers.

Marley is 6-years-old and a bit more high energy than her sister Tootsie. She’s also a bit more anxious in new situations than Tootsie is but seems to be calmer if her sister is at her side. Marley LOVES chasing tennis balls and just the sight of one has her tail wagging and little Marley jumping up and down with excitement. Because new situations frighten them both a bit, Marley and Tootsie would do best in a home with no young children and an owner who is patient with them as they settle into their new environment.
