Update 10/20/18 – a home has been found!
Two senior dogs, nine years of age, are in need of a retirement home together – or they might be put to sleep. Aside from the typical aches and pains that accompany advancing age, these senior Labrador retrievers are in good health.
Why then, are they at risk of being put to sleep? Their owner, who has had them since they were just pups, has been moved to an assisted living facility – sadly, the owner’s family is not in a position to take the two dogs in. An advocate, who is trying to help find these seniors a new home, has informed the Pet Rescue Report that the former owner would rather have the dogs humanely euthanized than separate them at this stage of their life.
These bonded dogs are described as “very sweet,” and both are said to be house-broken. For their entire lives, they were beloved pets – what is happening now is completely out of their control. They need to find a loving new family to take them both in and care for them for the rest of their days.
You can help these seniors find a home together by taking a moment to network this article . The dogs (females named Sony and CoCo) are currently located in Benton, Arkansas.
