Simon & Garfunkel's Happily Ever After!

We received a call from a Good Samaritan that these brothers were hanging outside at a friends farm 24/7 and needed homes. Concerned about the dogs being neglected and in summer heat, Paws of L.A. Rescue came to sweep these boys off their paws! ⁣

It was quite the challenge and their story prior to our care is clouded. We know they were at the animal shelter in Riverside prior to their location of pick up/surrender and that they were puppies. Neither dog was very welcoming to humans, as we believe they didn’t have much human interaction previous to being in our care. We tirelessly tried to get them out from under the van - they were skittish and just wanted to be together. This dynamic duo was quite the pair!

Weary to separate these brothers, it was recommended by Sylvia (@dogupinthisbitch), our Lead Behaviorist that they foster in separate homes. This was the best thing we could have done for these brothers, because they both shined into their own characters.⁣

Simon’s separation anxiety with humans grew as he was supposed to be decompressing boarding. We knew his next home would need to have the experience to take on separation anxiety and the training commitment. There isn’t an easy overnight solution.

After reviewing MANY applications for this guy, we found Charlie and Erika’s application. Charlie had experience with separation anxiety in previous rescue dogs he fostered, so this gave us the confidence to move forward as a Foster to Adopt situation first.
