Chihuahua and pit bull dream team still looking for their forever home! »
We wrote about these guys last year and looks like they still have not found their true home. I know it’s hard to think about taking in two dogs but I hear it’s actually often easier to have two dogs because they entertain each other. But here’s their story, it’s too sweet:
Nina and Dutch, otherwise known as “The Odd Couple” are a bonded pair that must be adopted together. Both are five years old, crate-trained, friendly, great with cats and dogs. They are being fostered in Pittsburgh, PA but they will go to wherever their perfect home is. Both are vegan dogs, Natural Balance.
Originally, Nina came from a horrific abuse situation in MS, and Dutch was a neglect case from GA. They met in foster care 4 years ago and it was love, love, love. Here’s the dynamic between this seemingly unlikely duo…Nina is a pitbull and is quite meek and shy. She can be found cuddling on the couch and being mushy with those that she knows best. Dutch is a chihuahua who makes sure that no one messes with her best friend! She is Nina’s right hand bodyguard, and her fierce protector. We don’t mean this to say she attacks when someone pets Nina! However, Dutch is protective of Nina with other dogs, though in a sort of Ren and Stimpy kind of way! It’s nothing that a few small corrections doesn’t stop.
They are accustomed to living with cats and are currently in a foster home with three other dogs. Both are very dog friendly. Nina needs a little help being assertive, as she can be a bit of a doormat to other dogs. Dutch, on the other hand, is very assertive and usually picks up where Nina leaves off! Both LOVE to go for walks and cuddle. Nina takes some time and patience to warm up, and is fearful of small children. Her foster family has a 5 yo child that she is warming up to nicely, but Nina naturally gets scared of the unfamiliar. These girls are not difficult, but because of their unique combination of traits, we want them to be in a house that is pretty dog savvy. They were given up after three years due to circumstances of their owner; it was not a reason that related to the dogs. These girls are TRULY a one in a million pair, and thus, we are looking for the special home.
Please feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org you would like to talk more with their foster mom. Nina is just about the beautiful girl you have EVER seen and we get compliments wherever we go on how gorgeous and sweet she is. Dutch is a little prancing spitfire, a true diva, but not a whiny one! Thanks for looking!
And just look at these goofballs!:
So if you or anyone you know would at all consider taking in this pair, please contact the foster!
