Friday was the worst day in the lives of Osito and Pebbles. Who knew where the bonded poodles were going when invited to go for a car ride? Who knew, as their trusted mom and dad carried them into the shelter and told the staff they had decided to surrender the dogs, because they were having “personal problems”?  And then who knew, it would soon be the most heart wrenching moments for Osito and Pebbles as they were going through the stressful intake process and without a kiss, without a hug and without a word, the only family they ever knew walked out of the room and disappeared.

The very bonded senior dad and daughter need help, and it would be perfect if they could find a home to be together.

You can visit me at my temporary home at C407. “Follow Osito’s Facebook page here. Osito has been reported to have a serious heart murmur. The two dogs remain in the medical ward where they can rest and be together.

    OMG how can people be so cruel watching both videos has made me cry.
    As these 2 are so adorable
    The owners who did this ought to be ashamed of themselves when you take on a dog its for life and not be discarded into a shelter.
    When will people learn.
    I hope and pray that somebody can adopt these adorable dogs and not have to be separated as that would be so cruel and unkind.
    If i was living closer i would adopt these 2 cuties straight but living in Perth Western Australia i can’t
    You are both in my thoughts and prayers OSITO and PEBBLES

    I can’t believe people can take their dogs to a shelter and just drop them off without a better reason than “personal problems.” Seriously? How sad!! They’ve had them for a long time and probably the only family the dogs have ever known. Now they’ve been betrayed and abandoned by the same people that they’ve shown unconditional love to their entire life. I feel so bad for these two sweethearts. Please share these sweet babies and hope they can get a new home where they can live together and be loved for the rest of their lives.

    ????????☹️???????????????????????????????? HEARTBREAKING! Their owners are heartless and soulless scumbags! How could they be so insensitive and unfeeling not even to say good bye to these precious pups! Those evil monsters must have hearts made of stone to abandon these pups in their golden years when they should feel loved, at peace, secure, safe, and relaxing in the home they’ve known all their lives. How could someone be so cruel to discard their pet with no regard for the welfare of a pet who has feelings and emotions! Shame on those disgusting cruel creeps! ????????????????????????????????☹️????????

    Precious Pups, I’m praying that both of you will be adopted together, hopefully before the holidays. God bless both of you, sweet pups. ♥️????????????????????????♥️

    ???? SHARED ???? I’m praying for you, precious pups. May both of you be blessed with a loving forever home very soon. ????????????????

    Personal problems? We ALL have personal problems and we don’t abandon our pets when the going gets tough. Hoping these precious pups find a loving home with people who won’t let their “personal” problems dictate the fate of their pets.

  6. Star Shelley says:

    They are so cute! Poor babies, how can any body just surrender them to a kill shelter, why could thee people find a home for them if they did not want them anymore. Sharing with love and prayers for their life and freedom asking our dear lord for a miracle.

    These two darling little dogs are not puppies and therefore have a minimal chance of being adopted – yet these inconsiderate selfish owners dumped them due to ‘personal problems’ and walked away like they were two broken toys. Osito and Peebles do not deserve this – I hope these lousy owners get the same consideration they gave their two senior dogs – NONE!
