No reason was given, but when these two dogs were dropped off at the shelter by their owner, they clung to each other out of fear, uncertain of what their future might hold.
Bridget and Louie, as they are now named, were photographed upon their intake at Montgomery County Animal Shelter in Conroe, Texas this past week. Little did they know that just one day later, they would begin their journey to a new life.
Both dogs were suffering from signs of neglect, with mange and matted fur. But they were obviously attached to one another, so the shelter decided to keep them together in their kennel.
Dog fighters are also known to file down a female dog’s teeth to prevent injuries to males during breeding, or if they are to be used as bait animals. It’s heartbreaking, no matter what the cause.
Bridget is now 100% heartworm-free and has gone to Canine Good Citizen training. And Louie has become a “social butterfly”, enjoying his time at doggie day care and making lots of friends!
But the two are still each other’s favorites. They love playing together.
And they love each other’s company.
