EUGENE, Ore. – Duck and Goose are female Chihuahuas who would like to stay together when they go to their new home.
The two little dogs were recently rescued from a hoarding situation, where they lived with more than 90 other dogs.
Since then they have received medical care and attention at Greenhill Humane Society, and they are now ready to leave the shelter and become part of a family.
The dogs are quiet and reserved and are looking for a calm and patient family that will understand their unique background.
Shelter staff members explain that bringing under-socialized dogs into a home can be both rewarding and challenging. It may take time for the dogs to adjust to a new environment, and they may be frightened by everyday experiences and noises.
Shelter staff members say Duck and Goose are closely bonded and it would be nice to keep them together. They are 10 years old, and their adoption fee is $120 for the two of them to go to the same home. The fee includes the cost of vaccinations, microchip identification, spaying or neutering, a certificate for a free veterinary exam and more.
Every Tuesday, Greenhill Humane Society showcases homeless pets on KEZI 9 News Midday at 11 a.m.
