Rachel & Monica (BONDED)

Rachel & Monica (BONDED)

Foster insights/story : Came from a home where the Owner died. Very loving and quiet dog. Loves attention but is on the needy side. A little shy when you first meet her but she does warm up quickly. Loves to sit with you in your chair while watching TV and like to sleep in bed with you. She does have a favorite squeaky toy, which she has almost destroyed. Not to squeak, but to chew on. She does like outside, and willingly goes outside in the fenced area.
Both dogs have some separation anxiety and will need time to settle into a new environment.

Foster insights/story : Very loving and quiet dog. Loves attention but is not overly needy. A little shy when you first meet her but she does warm up quickly. Loves to sit with you in your chair while watching TV and likes to sleep in bed with you. She rides in the car well. Just lays down in the seat. Do have a problem with barking at strangers when she meets them for the first time….doesn’t seem to matter male or female. If she or Rachel are frightened by a stranger, there is no stopping the barking except to put them outside.
Monica has difficulty with stairs and may need to be carried.
Both dogs have some separation anxiety and will need time to settle into a new environment.
