Bruno & Bailey, a pair, fostered in Chicago suburb

Spread the word about this lovable Doxie:

We determined Bruno and Bailey are boys that need to stay together.  They came in from a shelter after their owner passed away.  Bruno is a very shy dapple boy and seems to need Bailey close by. 

Bruno loves to chase butterflies and is a true doxie tht loves to track and hunt all the creatures in the yard.  Bailey is a happy boy that loves being outside and likes to talk to neighbors but is quiet inside. Bailey is a fluffy easy going pup with lots of love to give.  The boys are markers and foster mom uses belly bands and the situation is improving.

Both dogs are food motivated, enjoy stuffed Kongs, and like cheese and chicken for treats.  This pair would do best with fenced yard, a quiet home environment, and owners with patience and love who will let them blossom.  Because Bruno had a previous back issue, the boys will need a home with few stair and easy access to the outside or be carried.

Medical Information:

Bruno, the 7 year old is up to date on his vaccines, and is parasite and heart worm free.  He just had a dental. Bailey is 3 years old and is up to date on vaccines and is also parasite and heart worm free.  He recently had a brief back issue but was treated with steroids, pai killers, and crate rest and is now doing well.
