We don’t have a home, but we have love to share!
Clyde and I (Chloe) have been married for five years, and the difficult economic times have hit us hard. After successfully raising 3 litters of puppies and sustaining a loving relationship with each other, we lost our home. Our family was absolutely devastated. They brought us to the Animal Rescue League of Boston, and were assured that we would be well taken care of. And we have been … our lives are pretty good. Our kennel is fairly small, and could use a decorator’s touch, but we go on walks three times per day, go to doggie social hour once daily, and occasionally get to spend time in a lovely office upstairs with wonderful people and a couch that we just adore! Every so often we humor the silly humans and do things that they ask, like ‘sit’… this makes them really happy and they give us lots of treats! Last night we had a bath… necessary I suppose, but NOT my favorite part of being here.
Despite being homeless and our temporary living quarters, Clyde and I are still mad about each other. We sleep entwined and on top of each other, and we love to play together. We know each other so well, we even finish each other’s sentences (you might not understand what we are saying, but its true!) We like it here, but we miss having a human family … we would like to find a person or family who can envision not one but two adorable Rat Terriers. I know that adopting two dogs at once is a lot to ask, but we are such an amazing pair… please come by the Animal Rescue League to visit us. Please don’t be turned off if we bark a bit …we can be defensive of our home turf, and don’t immediately trust strangers. If you give us a chance (do YOU hug every stranger you meet?), we warm up to people quickly!
