Two Dallas strays have been winning the hearts of many on social media with their obvious loyalty and affection for each other via their recent photo. The two dogs are seen comforting each other in their kennel, an environment that can be unknown, depressing and scary to most animals.
Both dogs were picked up on July 10, 2021 and taken to Dallas Animal Services and Adoption Center. Their names are Bacon and Waffles, and when they were found they had a very itchy skin condition. Happily, the shelter reported they are doing much better now and need a loving adopter to take them both, if possible.
“My name is WAFFLES. I am a neutered male, black Labrador Retriever mix. The shelter staff thinks I am about 3 years old. I have been at the shelter since July 10, 2021. I am currently in a foster home, but I’m still available for adoption! To find out more about me or connect with my foster family, email: [email protected] | If I may be your missing pet, please contact Dallas Animal Services direct by calling the number 1-(214)-670-6800 or by emailing [email protected] as soon as possible.”
Shelter staff made the following comments about Waffles:
“Ok, really Waffles?! With that smooshy, squishy face?? This sweet baby boy will have a MAJOR transformation once he gets into a loving home with good food, good rest, & some love. He is only 3 years old, so he has plenty of time to become the dog he was intended to become. If you want to be a part of Waffles journey to become who he was meant to be, you might want to come meet this squishy fella! He’s ready to grow into a beautiful dog & soul mate to the right owner.“
My name is BACON. I am a neutered male, white & black Pit Bull Terrier. The shelter staff think I am about 3 years old. I have been at the shelter since Jul 10, 2021. I am currently in a foster home, but I’m still available for adoption! To find out more about me or connect with my foster family, email [email protected] If I may be your missing pet, please contact Dallas Animal Services and Adoption Center direct by calling the number 1-(214)-670-6800 or by emailing [email protected] as soon as possible.”
Shelter staff made the following comments about Bacon:
“Little Bacon needs some love! This pup is headed for a major glow-up with the right owner. Bacon will be a slow-paced intro into someone’s home because he will need to undergo heartworm treatment. No worries! Dallas Animal Services and Adoption Center pays for the treatment and you just get to see the transformation in all its glory. Bacon will be chilling on a blanket, being your best pal until he’s cleared & you two can hit the trails or throw a frisbee. At 56 pounds, Bacon can handle an active lifestyle & he’s still so young! Come meet this sweet face today!“
While it’s not mandatory that Bacon and Waffles go to the same home together, it would be such a shame to separate this pair. They have provided companionship and comfort to each other as seen in their photo.
Sadly, Dallas Animal Services must double up dogs in many of their kennels due to the high influx of animals coming into the shelter. They desperately need good and reputable fosters and adopters to step up.

We can learn a lot from Bacon and Waffles about loyalty, friendship, compassion and sticking together during this time of crisis and division in our nation.
Please give this pair a chance at a loving, forever home.
