Owners walked out of shelter while terrified poodles going through intake procedure

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.
