There was an ad on petfinder classifieds for these two. Ad said they must be adopted together, blahblahblah.
I blew it off.
Then GUESS WHO (I won't name names - Susan Friend of SCC!) wrote to me...and said "Ohh look at these poor doxies".
Turns out, Susan KNEW the woman and her labradors are vicious and have mauled the mom dog. So now I'm fostering an UNneutered male doxie of about 7yrs. and the Mom Susie, about 9, who, well God knows if she's spayed. She's fat. I know that. And something BAD has happened to her, too...the boy is Odie. He looks identical to Copper but thinner. Much thinner...
They REEKED when they got her so have been bathed. Odie has a teary eye for some reason. I don't EVEN know if they've had shots lately - owner (who says SHE rescued them, who knows what really happened) had no idea!!!
