Update on the Special Pooches, Saved by a Community of Dog Lovers, in Memory of Shy/Khloe

 This weekend I was able to stop by Unleashed where the pooches saved in memory of Shy/Khloe are recuperating. They have each gotten over a bout of kennel cough, are growing glossy, black coats, and are in excellent spirits. When they're together they act like littermates, even going so far as to choose to play with matching toy bumblebees out of a whole selection of toys:
Though now that they're out of the shelter environment, you can really see their true personalities. The pooch who was loosing her hair, due to mange, has been sporting regrowth and the vets are quite impressed by her progress. She is very confident, eager to please, and learning new tricks quite quickly:
The pooch with the broken leg and wound is a very sweet and a bit more shy. She is so responsive to affection and absolutely loves to play despite dragging a heavy cast. She is now sporting purple polka-dots that while being fashionable, also give her an extra leg-up on her playmate:
The big scab has fallen off of her wound, and her leg is on the way to mending.They are both such happy dogs that it's difficult to think that they would have been put down, if it weren't for the generosity of the online community.
We will give an update on names once Shy/Khloe's family has decided. The pooch with mange has moved into a foster home, while the pooch with the broken leg has about a week or so to recover, but is looking for a foster home. We're hoping to find these special pooches a great family; if you are anyone you know are interested, they are available through Project Rescue in Chicago. (And thank you Project Rescue for taking the pooches on, coordinating their vet visits, helping them recuperate and find their new homes).
We will continue to post more "real-time" photos and updates on our Facebook page.

So wonderful to hear these two are doing so well. Kitty loves them because they look like her. They really do look like they have Boston Terrier in them from their coloring. Neat.

I sure do wish they could be adopted together..Sigh.

I am so happy to hear about these adorable kiddos! I am so in love withe the endearing cuddle action that Pitties always seem to do. Sweet.
The space where they are is so nice - great decor ;)

Traci said...

They are sooooo cute! It never ceases to amaze me that animals can continue being so sweet after they've been treated so horribly by humans. I agree with others that it would be very nice if they could somehow find a home together, but I'm sure that might be asking too much :) I'm just glad that they've both been saved and can go on and hopefully live long happy lives!

Mary said...

I'm so happy to see them playing and enjoying life! Ahhh, it's so nice to see with all the sad stories I read. I hope to see a post soon saying they have both found perfect forever families.
