On Sunday, a heartbreaking scene played out at the East Valley Animal Shelter as a woman sobbed as she surrendered her two bonded dogs, leaving a seasoned volunteer shaking her head and hoping the two dogs involved will be adopted soon. A young woman entered the shelter with two beautiful dogs – handsome Australian shepherds. Both dogs were from the same litter and had been part of her family for the last six years since they were just weeks old. And on this day the dogs were surrendered:
“The reason she gave was to ‘save her marriage,'” shelter volunteer Sherry Brewer posted on her Facebook page as she advocated for help placing the dogs in a secure and safe home – hopefully together. “I wanted to say to her that she’ll never be able to have the same feelings for her husband again, because she’ll have to live with the guilt of giving her precious dogs up.”
The dogs – CALI (A1679910) and DINGO (A1679911) – are very bonded. Cali is described “as a spayed female brown and brindle Australian shepherd. She is six-years-old and weighs 80 pounds. Her brother, Dingo is a black Australian shepherd and weighs 76 pounds.” Sherry describes both the of the dogs as very unique looking – their adoption listing photos don’t do them any justice. Both dogs have been well cared for, have beautiful coats and the female Cali, has blue eyes.
“I wanted to tell her she would be better off saving her dogs and relinquishing her husband. I just walked away with a heavy heart, hoping they will be adopted together, ” Sherry sadly ended her post.
