Backstory:
Scallywag and Franklin were signed over to a kill shelter, and they contacted me to pull them to safety. They were terrified, and in rough shape. Scallywag’s hair was so matted that she couldn’t move. Franklin had major ear infections. They were very much biters in the beginning cuz they were terrified!! Clearly they had not been outside in a very long time they acted like they had no clue what the grass was. They’ve made HUGE strides with their foster and are ready for a home of their own. The foster has been working with them for quite some time and has gotten them to a point where they could be adopted together. With this being said Scallywag does dominate Franklin for food, and attention. It would be ideal for them to go to a home with an older retired couple that has a quiet home setting. Once they gain your trust they just want to be held and on your lap.
