Angel is a 4 year old, 36lb Doodle, and Holly is a 4 year old, 58lb Golden, who came to us from one of our first large groups of Amish puppy mill rescues back in December (Angel is a littermate to Madeline, who came to us pregnant!). They were petrified of all people, but our amazing volunteers have been working hard to make slow and steady progress introducing Angel and Holly to the world.
We are seeking a foster home for Angel and Holly together, to help continue their progress. When they first moved to our GRRAND Central Station kennel, our volunteers would have to carry Angel out to the potty yard, and Holly would follow Angel. Angel is a little more outgoing than Holly at this point, but they now walk out to the yard on slip leads, and they are letting volunteers pet them and give them treats. Holly was even playing with a ball recently! They especially love being with other dogs (check out the recently posted video of them playing!).
We can't wait to see how Angel and Holly's personalities blossom in a foster home! We believe they may need to be separated for adoption in the future, but for right now, we want to continue their stability by transitioning them to a home environment together.
Angel and Holly are looking for a special foster home together with a family experienced in the socialization needs of puppy mill dogs. They will need a secure above-ground fenced-in yard and no children under the age of 16 in the house, as they are still considered flight risks. A stable, confident dog in the home will do wonders for helping their progress! We have no information on this time about cats. Their foster home will need to have the time and patience to continue showing them how amazing a family and a home are, but the reward in the end is so worth the time.
