Choc is in a foster home with Quigley. Even though these 2 sweet dogs do very well together they are not a bonded pair. In fact their foster mom thinks that they would do great in separate homes, as their primary focus is on people! She would love to keep one or both of them but her cats are not thrilled sharing their home with two dogs. Here is what she told us "They are so sweet and friendly. Every person that has walked in the door they have greeted with kisses. They ignore barking and crazy dogs in our neighborhood. They take treats like a champ. Very gentle. They love to get belly rubs and scratches. They are the best dogs in the world" They do great in their crates, are housebroken and do not chew things. Their human died several years ago, leaving six dogs and a cat. Over the years, 3 of the dogs were rescued, 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. When we heard about these animals living pretty much on their own, we took all of them. Choc and Quigley are perfect examples of the indomitable spirit of dogs! No matter how awful their past, they don't dwell there-they just want to be loved and give love.
