Shelter Dogs find Comfort in Each Other

April Livingston | August 31st, 2018

A bully mix named Charity and a miniature pinscher mix named Suzy Q did not have much when they were found wandering the streets of Mississippi. They did have one thing, though: they had each other. So, when they came into the Jackson County Animal Shelter in Gautier, Mississippi they wanted nothing more than to just be together. They had been neglected by their previous owners and were surrendered together at the shelter and they were scared—and in bad shape.

Charity was nearly hairless because she had an extreme case of demodex mange. Suzy Q didn’t have any skin issues, but she wanted to comfort her friend and often spent her time snuggling with Charity or even using her as a bed instead of lying on the floor. Charity and Suzy Q were both treated for a flea infestation and spent all their time together working to gain weight and their strength. They spend every moment together, sleeping, eating, and never leaving one another’s side. Staff at the shelter say they always love to walk by their kennel to see how they are sleeping, as they love to snuggle and be as close as possible to one another.

Once the pair gained their strength, it was time to find them a home. Shelter volunteers knew the pair needed to stay together and go to the same home, which could make it more difficult to find the right placement for them. The pair was posted to Facebook and that’s when Third Coast Animal Rescue stepped in and promised to find them a home—together. The rescue is now working on finding that home for them and they are confident the loving pair of dogs will find just the right place to land so they can live in love rand comfort together.
