Backstory: their dad fell very sick with cancer. He reached out to a rehoming site and there were no bites. I (Danielle) offered to take these boys, he agreed. The night they were picked up the owner TJ passed away. These boys are seniors and have grown up together, they are brothers. They don’t like cats but are ok with other dogs.

Foster comments: Leviathan likes to tear toys and remove the squeakers. Behemoth is very food motivated, so training is going well. Behemoth is a cuddle monster. Leviathan always likes to know where you are, so he will follow you everywhere. Both dogs are a huge fan of playing fetch. You just need to pay attention to make sure things do not get too heated. If they get into a scuffle with each other, they go hard, like brothers do.
Even though these dogs are bonded, they do occasionally play rough or get into a fight so the potential adopter should be a strong dog handler.
