Take a look at these two fabulous Doberkids. They are brother and sister, and they are perfectly formed and very compact in size. The two of them together would just equal my big handsome boy.
They came to us as the result of a divorce when the one keeping them could no longer afford the costs associated with caring for two dogs. So often the children are the ones who suffer through no fault of their own.
We've had a good many pairs that have come to us over the years, but these two are perhaps more attached to one another than any we've seen. While they're both happy-go-lucky, well-adjusted, and engaged and engaging kids, they are totally bonded to one another to the point that Mama Carol says they will “scream and howl if separated.”
In fact, if we put Houston out first, he will climb over the gate trying to get back to where she is. So we put her out first (he hasn’t figured out how to open his kennel run gate!), and then bring him out to her. It’s a joy to see their devotion to one another, and obviously they'll be placed as a pair.
For his part, Houston likes to sleep in bed with his humans (if allowed), loves to cuddle, and loves all toys that squeak and make noise. As is often the case, he's a bit tentative around new folks when meeting, but, again as usual, he warms up quickly.
Falcon seems to favor women and children while being a little tentative around men, initially. She's very loving and gives little kisses.
Both know to sit, get down, out, stay, and come on command. Both also have their own sweaters. They were so thin when they came in that they were shivering when let outside, so we dress them in sweaters when they go out and they love them!
Here are a couple of early comments from our volunteers:
"These two sweet babies are just as cute as they are sweet! Although small in size, they have big personalities! They crave human attention and affection and enjoy human interaction once they quickly warm up to you”
“I haven't met him yet, but she sure is a dainty little darling and seems sweet and sociable.”
Between this brief description and their pictures, I think you can see what a lovely pair they are, so if two for the size of one appeals to you, make an appointment to meet them once your application is approved and come see for yourself what a dynamic duo they are.
