|Jake & Elwood|
Here is their story from the Buddy Dog website:
"Say hello to Jake and Elwood! These 1-year-old male Chihuahua mixes are brothers, and because they are so bonded, they are looking for a home together. Can you believe someone rescued these cuties from the side of the road? Both were in rough shape when they made it to Buddy Dog, but with a little TLC they are now doing so much better! Jake (on the left) was found with an injured front leg, which had to be amputated. But not to worry, he gets along fine on three legs! Jake and Elwood are super friendly, and they love to play and cuddle. They get along with cats and other dogs, but their playmates should be gentle! They are semi-housebroken and they use puppy-pads here. Jake and Elwood are two very special little guys! Please call or visit the shelter for more information about them!"
These guys are the definition of cool. They've been through a lot and are happy, fun dogs who get along with everyone. Talk about rock stars!
