What could be more heartbreaking than a series of unfortunate events for two bonded senior dogs who thought they would remain with their families forever? Instead the two terrified and heartbroken dogs were surrendered to Miami-Dade Animal Services by their owner, and to make life even more tragic for the sweet dogs – they have been separated – they and cry and whine to be reunited.

Meet Rex  (11 years old) #A0846554 who is so frightened and depressed he shakes like a leaf and begs for some emotional comfort from kind volunteers and his best friend Jerry, #A0886121.

Video of Rex:



A volunteer offers the following description:

“… This poor baby trembles uncontrollably and cries so softly. To make matters worse, Rex was DUMPED with his BEST FRIEND Jerry #A0886121 and they are separated at the shelter. Please give these two bonded seniors a home where they can live together and enjoy being LOVED by a ‘furever’ family. These poor souls thought they would remain with their family until their last day. Sadly, they were betrayed and they desperately need your help.” Follow the Facebook page here.

As for Jerry, he is a 10-year-old neutered tan and black Rottweiler mix or possibly a Tibetan spaniel. (Weight 55 pounds) He is reported to be partially house trained. Both dogs are very friendly. They have been described as:

“Jerry #A0886121as was surrendered together with Rex, but have remained separated since intake. Rex needs help; he won’t stop shaking, even his head shakes and he whimpers often. Please please; let’s help this bonded seniors reunite and get adopted together. Both are amazing pups so gentle and loving. According to former owners both dogs are great with men, women, children and other animals.” Follow his Facebook page here.

Share Jerry and Rex’s plight with approved rescue organizations, friends, family and social media contacts. Sharing saves lives.

    Why the hell were they separated in the first place they should be together as they are a bonded pair. Now for the owner how could you get rid of these two defenseless Senior dogs. Taking a dog on is for life and not to be dumped into a shelter

  4. Pamela Garlisch says:

    Somebody that lives near this shelter needs to press charges for animal abuse at the shelter. Separating these two dogs is classified as abuse! People make some noise and force the shelter to reunite them!

  5. Tracy Whitcomb says:

    You holler all the time that you don’t have space, if those two are having such a problem being apart and is hard for them to function why don’t you just put them back together??? Sometimes you have to keep them together for their happiness. Think of them!!!! Put them together so they are not so afraid.

  6. Melissa Gurley says:

    I agree with you totally they being not together is causing them stress which is abuse what’s wrong with these people have they have no heart they should not be working there and it should be reported

  7. Helen says:
