Polly & Patches found themselves abandoned at a shelter where many dogs don't make it out alive. We believe they are mother/daughter. We also think that Patches is about 9 years old and that Polly is about 6-7. They have been together for years and anyone who has a mother/daughter bond knows how meaningful and important it is, which is why they are a bonded pair and have to be adopted together. They are easy to take care of and worth every minute of their time.
"I work at 11th Hour and brought the girls home for a week to see how they would be in the home environment... They are beautiful girls and I was happy every minute of the day I was with them. They made me feel very loved and were great girls to have....here is what I know about these girls" Laura
Patches (momma bear) is beautiful, loving and caring, like every great mother is. She loves walking around the backyard, smelling any scent she can find. She does move a little slow, but does have random bursts where she will "run" (It is the cutest waddle ever!) She also, while sniffing, continuously looks around to make sure she sees where Polly is and that she is safe and not causing trouble haha. Every time I walked outside her tail would wag quickly and she would walk right over to me. If ever you can't see her, just track the snorting and you will find her : ) She is capable to doing stairs as well but at her own pace. Its an adorable site to see.
Polly is the playful girl (patches baby girl). She loves to run in the backyard. If she is not running around or rolling in the grass, she is tracking a scent. When she gets near a stronger smell, the beagle in her comes out and she begins to howl (its adorable). She will also follow Patches around, especially when its time to come inside, she waits for Patches to go in first and than comes behind. She loves going for walks and plays well with other dogs.
Both these girls are precious and the shelter favorites. They do not deserve to live out their lives (especially patches) in a shelter/cage. They absolutely LOVE BEING OUTSIDE. There were a couple of days where they were literally outside in the yard for 10 hours! I brought them in to give them a break and they went right back to the door to go out. They could possibly even just live outside in a dog house (unless its a storm). They are typical beagle/hound mixes and love tracking a scent. When they do, they will smell it the entire time. This being said, when doing so, they will howl like a hound because they are onto something. So they would do best with people that have a little more distance between their neighbors. They eat together and sleep together. They also could care less about my cats!
