Meet Elvis and Costello! We pulled these boys from the #ACC with the help of @susiesseniordogs and found a wonderful #foster home with the help of @fosterdogsnyc (🙌🏼❤️) They are 6 & 8 lbs, respectively, and just the cutest brothers in town. These guessed-to-be 12 year old boys were found in someone's yard (or so the story goes) and brought to the public shelter. They were matted and covered in feces. Little Elvis even had feces on his face. And they smelled as if they'd been fending for themselves for quite some time.
But after a visit to the groomer for spa day...what a makeover! They are cute senior puppies underneath that mess. It appears Elvis & Costello have been cared for at some point in their life, they are so so sweet and comfortable with domestic life. But in recent months have been neglected. We have witnessed A+ temperaments from both boys and they have shown no handling issues. Both boys had terrible teeth and received neuters and dentals @purepawsvet (Elvis had 5 teeth removed and Costello had 14)! It would be great if these boys could find an adopter together, however, they aren't outright needy for each other or overly bonded. When reunited after a little time apart (if one goes on a walk and the other stays home, or while at the groomer, for example), they always adorably greet each other with sniffs and little licks to the face. They are a sweet pair!
These #boys are simply charming and are patiently waiting for their forever home. We guarantee you'll be smitten faster than you can say "Elvis Costello!" :) #shelterchic #adoptdontshop #seniordogs #yorkie #rescuepup #reacuedog #rescueyorkie #senioryorkie #wednesday #humpday #fosteringsaveslives #elviscostello #elvis #nyc #becausesavinglivesisalwaysinstyle
