Coco and Fern came to us after their mom, a disable Navy Veteran, ran into tough times due to the Covid pandemic. She was figuring things out for herself and her daughter and felt it was in the best interest of these two bonded girls to find a new forever home. They were well-cared for and loved and we are happy to have them with us.
Coco is low energy, super cuddly and 22 lbs and Fern is medium energy and 12 lbs. Together, they are a great balance! They are UTD on vaccinations, microchipped, spayed and generally healthy.
Coco is blind and Fern is her little seeing eye dog. Fern really seems to feel like she needs to take care of Coco and gets upset when they are separated. They often lay together, but Fern will get up on the couch whereas Coco stays safely on the floor. They're both smart, Coco is already mapping out their foster home and they are both starting to understand the doggy door. While they came to us as house trained, they will need just a little time to adjust to a new routine and new set-up. They both love to go on walk and are crate trained. And they are both good with other dogs, cats and children! Pretty perfect dogs!
These two really are the sweetest pair of buddies – they are a bonded pair and need to stay together. They are brand new to us and we will update bio and photos soon!

APPLY TO ADOPT
Interested in adopting one of our senior dogs?
It's easy! First, make note of the dog's name and then move on to the online adoption application.
After your application is approved, we will coordinate a time for a meet and greet with you and the senior dog you are applying to adopt.
If you (and your family) and the dog are a good match for each other, a home visit is then scheduled and completed.
After a home visit is complete, the adoption can be finalized and a new happy tail can be told!
