You may have seen this pair yesterday on video, they are bonded brother and sister, Rocky and Ruby. I edited the video today after taking some pictures of them and added pics to it. You can view all their pics on a roll via our YouTube link..

But I'll post some pictures here now.. Approximately 4 years old and Rocky is the largest of the 2.
Staff has gotten to know them better over there 4 days stay and I was out in the yard with them again today and they started playing with each other. I noticed their play gets ruff, almost looks like they're fighting, but it's all good innocent fun. They're not trying to hurt each other.. They're very food motivated and work well for treats.. Seem to know all your basic commands. They love their kennel and do not seem stressed at all in it.. They gleefully run back to it after being out in the yard because they know they're getting a treat or their meal. They don't seem bothered by other dogs.. they are more into each other and humans.. We suspect they would be fine with other dogs , but we'll keep monitoring their progress.. Part of their story has something to do with chasing chickens on a farm. Also possibly used as hunting dogs and maybe outside all the time.. kenneled up? They keep their kennel clean at the shelter overnight and during the day which is always a big plus.. more will be revealed as they say.. We have a good feeling somebody's gonna quickly fall in love with them and they're gonna go out the door quick..
It brings to mind how some dogs end up staying here longer than most , usually because of their behavior and the like.. Generally if they're a bonded pair they end up staying for a longer period of time... Because most people are looking to adopt just one dog.. Same can be said about the Kitty Cats.. The funny part of it is for those of us caring for the animals on the dog side, we tend to talk a lot about animals that are kind of stuck and the more you wonder about when they're gonna go home and you're sharing it with other staff and volunteers, just keep mentioning it .. I bring it up a lot Purposely...Next thing you know they're out the door. Sometimes it happens quick.. I find it almost mystical, like somebody up there's watching over all the animals and listening to us.. It happens a lot..True Story 😉

*No cats, chickens, or small critters
