Description:Other Pictures of Patches (click to see larger version):
Patches and Gabby were rescued by a neighbor after their owner passed away. We don't have a lot of background information, but other than the teeth they were both in good shape, heart worm negative, and friendly. Patches is the more vocal of the two and a little slower to get comfortable with new people. She will do best with an experienced owner who knows how to let her get comfy before expecting cuddles and kisses. Patches will get there and Gabby has a head start in that are, but both will need some time to adapt since it appears they've had the same owner their entire lives and never been away from home. The pair is not cat-friendly, but they seem fine with other dogs and gentle people. They'll probably do best in a home without children, and a secure yard is a must since they are used to being outside but are still trying to figure out how to get back home, so they will almost certainly try to get out until they adjust. While it would be great to keep the pair together we would consider adopting them separately if they go to a home with another doxie they can bond with. Don't let the gray in the fur fool you- these ladies have plenty of energy left and lots of love to share!
