ADOPTED! Bella and Coco

Bella and Coco

Shih Tzu

DOB 3/1/2014

Many things in life are great as duos. Like peanut butter and jelly. Milk and cookies. Pancakes and syrup. To kick off 2019, we are thrilled to announce the yummiest duo of all…Precious and Stormy. 

What’s better than an adorable fuzzy face and wagging tail to greet you at the door every day?  How about TWO adorable fuzzy faces?!  We are Bella and Coco, a five-year-old, purebred, brother and sister pair of Shih Tzus.  They say the best things come in small packages, and that means us!  We are little bundles of love and affection, and we’re just about pocket-sized, weighing in at 22-23 lbs.  We couldn’t be more ready to come and live in your home: we’re spayed and neutered, up-to-date on our shots, chipped, and house-trained.  What’s more, we get on well with all and any canine and feline friends.  So if you have some already, that would suit us just fine.  We’re also great with kids, although we prefer ones of eight years or older. 

We’ve spent most of our lives sharing a home with a retiree.  We took long road-trips in the car visiting extended family in Maryland and New Jersey, and we also liked going to the Home Depot.  And we loved our daily trip to the dog-park, where we played with our furry friends and their humans.  Sadly, our own human passed away last summer, and we’ve been living with our human brother (his son) since then.  He would love to keep us (and we can see why!), but it’s a multi-pet household and even though we get on beautifully with all our four-legged siblings, it’s a bit of tight squeeze. 

We have only four requests:

  1. We get to stay together forever and ever!  As well as being siblings, we are best friends and love each other a lot.
  2. We get to eat our favorite dinner (in store food)!
  3. We are never to be crated unless traveling!  We were crate trained when we were puppies, but nowadays we are bed dogs, not crate dogs.
  4. We get bed privileges with our new owner because we love to snuggle.

Our human brother and current owner has given us a glowing report.  He says, “Bella and Coco are extremely relaxed and loving dogs. They will greet you at the door standing and dancing on their back feet followed by an all-night snuggle. They do not make messes in the house and are incredibly well behaved.”  Frankly, we can’t see why anyone wouldn’t want to snap us up.  We think we might just be the new friends and cuddle-buddies you’ve always wanted!
