Georgia and Sunny are inseparable. In fact, it would be accurate to say that the pair are best friends. They have been together from the beginning, when they were both just little puppies. They lived in the same house for years, with the same family, and had a pretty wonderful life together. That is, until the day that their family was no longer able to care for them properly. So, the two dog sisters were surrendered to the Arizona Humane Society (also known as AHS) in the spring. From the moment the pair arrived at the AHS, it was clear that they had to be together, no matter what. In fact, they actually refused to be separated from one another even for a moment.
The best part of this particular friendship is the fact that Georgia and Sunny are complete opposites of one another. Sunny is a seven year old American Staffordshire terrier. She is excited to meet new people, is incredibly friendly, and is known to be quite adventurous, too. However, eight year old Georgia is another story altogether. She is a Chihuahua, and is much more reserved, shy, and cautious around new people and new dogs. Georgia typically follows her sister Sunny around and lets her take the lead in most new, and potentially scary, situations. While they are so different in so many ways, they are the same where it counts: they love each other very much.
Staff immediately knew the pair needed to stay together, as they were so strongly bonded. They hated to be apart so much in the scary shelter environment that they were kept in the same area at all times. They needed each other for comfort. Their bond is so strong that the shelter is requiring the pair be adopted together, which means it has been difficult to find a home for them. The pair has been at the AHS for 128 days and counting and hopes to find a perfect home soon. For more information on Sunny and Georiga, contact the Arizona Humane Society.
