Dogs Comfort Each Other At Shelter

April Livingston | August 9th, 2019

Dogs who find themselves bonded to one another meet in a variety of ways, but their bond is always unbreakable. That is what happened for two dogs names Jukebox and Agatha who both live at the Pima Animal Care Center in Tucson, Arizona. They did not enter the shelter together, but they are together now. Agatha entered because she was an owner surrender to the shelter and Jukebox was a stray. But once they met their incredible bond was instant. The staff at the shelter say typically bonded dogs have spent their lives together, but these two really didn’t know each other before they met. They first met in a playgroup and they have been together ever since.

When they arrived, both dogs were struggling with being in the shelter which is often a stressful place. They were able to find love and comfort in one another. They are so bonded that the staff allowed them to share a kennel so they can spend all their time together. They love to snuggle and play together and don’t seem to mind that they just have one small bed. The staff shared a photo of the two dogs snuggling on Facebook and they are getting lots of attention on social media. The staff typically won’t stipulate that two dogs must be adopted together, because that means it takes much longer for them to find a home. But with Jukebox and Agatha, they are just meant to be in a home together.

The staff says they are still trying to find the perfect adoptive family who is willing to adopt both dogs together. They also say that it is a miracle that the pair found one another in the crowded shelter. The Pima Animal Care Center takes in approximately 17,000 animals per year and currently has just over 400 dogs. But they are together now and all that’s missing is a home!
