Meet Sammie and DD Foster or adopter needed

Bonded pair, must adopt togetherDD (7 y/o, 11 lb Yorkie) and Sammie (4 y/o, 9 lb Shih-Tzu) are a bonded pair of lap queens - they are looking to be adopted together!

DD and Sammie found themselves homeless and were forced to live outside. They're safe now in a foster home and they're ready for a permanent place to live. DD is a 7-yo Yorkie and weighs 11 pounds. Sammie is a 4yo Shih-Tzu and weighs 9 pounds. They are very attached to each other, and we will only place them together. They are absolute cuddle bugs and if you're a couch potato, these could be the dogs for you. They are working on potty training and doing great but they do still have pee accidents in the house if they don't have a chance to go out. They need a very consistent routine where they are taken out every 2 hours as they continue to be potty trained. They will occasionally use a pee pad inside. Continued house training will need to be a priority in their new home. They love toys and DD carries one in her mouth most of the time. They are yappy little dogs. DD loves everyone she meets even if she barks at them at first. Sammie really wants to be a baby and have a mama that will hold her and snuggle all the time. She'll sit on your lap for hours while you work. She seems to bond with the woman in the family that cares for her. In order for a man or another person in the house to bond with her, they will need to put in a lot of work holding her, petting her and being patient. It takes a lot of time for her to be ok with other people that she is not bonded with, and she will bark at anyone she isn't bonded with every time she sees them. This requires patience. DD barks to say hello to everyone and Sammie barks to say stay away. They are good with cats and other dogs. They romp and play with each other and have a blast. A retired person or someone that is home a lot is the perfect fit for them. They are crate trained, spayed, heartworm negative and current on their vaccines. Sammie is afraid of fast movements so a home with children of any age is not ideal for her.

Training: Crate- and potty pad trained; working on potty outside

Vetting: Spayed, up-to-date on vaccines and heartworm negative
