Crixus and Ashur have not had the best of luck; both are available for adoption, and in the perfect world the two dogs could stay together, but Border Buddies Rescue just want the dogs safe, happy and loved – even if it means they will be separated.
The story of these two dogs began when they were kept locked up in a kennel in Long Beach, California. They were never exercised, never allowed to play or even had a soft bed to sleep on. Had it not been for animal advocate and volunteer, Heidi van der Hoek, the dogs likely would have continued to be locked up in the kennel or eventually sent to an overcrowded shelter. Everyday Heidi checked on the dogs to make sure they had food, water and their kennels were cleaned.
“They have been with me since March after they were abandoned by their owner. They were left in kennels under a tarp and the neighbors fed them until a rescue was found. Anyhow, they are in search of a forever home, together or separate,” their foster mom posted on the dog’s Facebook page.

“Crixus (red) is 1.5-2 y.o. UTD on shots and neutered. He prefers female and neutered dogs and does great with cats other than the occasional chase. He does well on leash and with recall and knows basic commands. He will also kennel but prefers the sofa or to snuggle in bed at night. He has a great personality, full of spunk! He loves having a playmate, very independent but likes some cuddle time each day.
Ashur (blue) is 1 – 1.5 y.o. UTD on shots and neutered. He does great with all dogs and cats. He does well on leash and with recall and knows basic commands. He dislikes the kennel but prefers the dog bed next to your bed or to snuggle in your bed at night. He is an old soul, he is well behaved and prefers human company over that of the other pets. He loves to lay next to you on the couch and is a shadow.”
Share their stories with friends, family and social media contacts. Sharing saves lives. Help Crixus and Ashur make their own memories – separately or together; as long as they are safe and happy.
