Choc's human died several years ago and left six dogs and a cat including Choc's brother, Quigley. Over the years, 3 of the dogs were either rescued or taken but not Choc, Quigley, Stanley the blind dachshund or the cat. These poor dogs and Oz the cat were all pretty much living on their own for much of this time in a pen outside with someone coming to feed them once a day. We believe that sometimes they were loose in the yard of a semi-abandoned house. When we heard about these animals living pretty much on their own, we took all of them. We have been told from the people that knew their history that Choc and Quigley were great with dogs, cat and kids and are both housetrained. They certainly were great with Stanley the blind dachshund who is only about 15 pounds. We are not certain at this time if Quigley and Choc are a bonded pair or if they can be adopted separately and hope to have a better idea of this fairly soon. They are sweet and loving dogs. Choc and Quidley (and Stanley too) are perfect examples of the truly indomitable spirit of dogs! No matter how awful their past, they don't dwell there. In the end they just want to be loved and give love. Please let us know if you are interested in Quigley and/or Choc.
