Earlier this week I was driving around on my lunch break and saw a homeless guy dragging two little dogs around with him in 95 degree heat. The poor dogs looked exhausted and very thirsty. I stopped to offer them some water (which they gulped down in about 3 seconds flat!). The homeless guy said he had found them and couldn't afford to take care of them. He said he wouldn't take them to the pound because he was afraid they'd be killed there, so he said he was going to just let them go on the street when he "found a good spot." Obviously I could not let him do that, so I offered to take them from him. He was very grateful and I gave the poor man $20, which was the only cash I had on me at the time. Both dogs were riddled with fleas and so filthy that they needed immediate baths!
I am currently boarding them at my vets and they will get all their shots and be fixed later this week. I did post Craigslist ads about them, since I don’t know how or when the homeless person got them, but although it seems there are tons of people looking for small brown dogs – these two aren’t them.
I have named them Toffee and Butter.
Toffee (the terrier mix) is about one year old and has the most magnificent eyes. He’s just a baby and loves giving kisses. He's a lively little boy and enjoys chasing a tennis ball (although we're working on having him actually bring it back!)
Butter is a two year old Chihuahua mix who is sooooo calm and serene and an excellent listener. He is a very quiet dog, very obedient, low key and perfectly behaved. He would make a darling companion for anyone. He seems to keep Toffee in line.
They are both SUPER people friendly and they got along well with the other dogs that I introduced them to. They also appear to be cat friendly and have just simply ignored the free roaming cat which lives at my vet's office. They seem quite bonded (Toffee seems to be a little more needy for his pal Butter) and it would be wonderful if they could be adopted together. However, I understand the realities of trying to place two dogs, and as they are both so young, I think they could adapt to being split up if needed.
They can stay at my vet's until they are neutered but I need to find a more permanent solution for them asap. If anyone can foster or if you know anyone who would be interested in adopting these two little charmers, please let me know. Please contact me (Anna) at Ashleyandhobie@yahoo.com
Also any donations (no matter how small!) towards boarding and expenses for Toffee & Butter would be greatly appreciated. I'm already racking up quite a bill at my vet's office! We are now a registered 501c Non Profit so all your donations are tax deductible.
