Ok. Here we are. This is Pixie and Poppy, and they are the last adoptable dogs this month. Don’t worry! I have way more photos of rescue dogs coming to fill out the week, but all those dogs got adopted within days of their new photos being taken, so they never ran as adoptable. But of course I still want you to see their sweet faces!
But back to these two. They are kinda like the Golden Girls. They are around 11 years old and they are bonded, which means they need to go to a new home together. They are almost blind and deaf. The have trouble with their back legs, so walking is tough and they kinda stumble around. All of that said, their foster mom says they are both wildly affectionate.
These ladies need to land where someone works from home (or is retired and home a lot). They need a calm and quiet place with no small kids and no big dogs. If you think you might be the perfect fit for these ladies, you can reach out to Pet Haven rescue. They don’t have an official adoption page just yet, but feel free to email the organization if you are interested.
About this project
For the next month, I’ll feature photos on my blog, my instagram and my facebook feeds that focus on dogs who need homes. These are dogs currently in foster homes, waiting for their forever family. They are amazing pups who will melt your hearts — some are hard to adopt because they are pit bull mixes (the sweetest dogs ever who cannot help their strength) or they have lived on the streets for a long time and are covered in scars or they might be blind or deaf (or both). Some are simply hard to get adopted because they are black, which is the dumbest reason ever. But each dog that has come into my studio in the last few weeks for photos has had a warm heart and wanted nothing more than love. Wouldn’t it be great if one of you could provide that? I hope so. To see all the dogs featured so far, look here.
