Sweet Allie and her son, Sloan, were found living underneath a county road bridge and were wet, cold and shivering. They had been abandoned by their owner, according to the county shelter officials. It was a terrifying experience for these two dogs, but even after being retrieved by animal control, their lives were still at risk.
The county animal shelter was, like most such shelters are, too full and this mom and son were facing euthanization. Fortunately, Angels Among Us Pet Rescue heard about their desperate plight and rescued them. They are now safe and in a loving foster home ... but still need to find their forever home.
Allie is a small to medium sized black and brown lab-beagle mix, about 1 year old. Sloan is a border collie/lab/beagle mix and, at 13 pounds, is about three months old. He has beautiful white and black coloring....and a white tipped tail! (He is absolutely adorable!) Allie is short-haired, and Sloan will probably be a medium-haired dog.
Although different in appearance, they are both very sweet and very mellow. They have been through so much together. Poor little Sloan is very scared and sticks to his mom like glue, rarely leaving her side. In turn, Allie is anxious when someone take her little boy away from her, and only relaxes when he is returned.
These behaviors were likely born of the extreme circumstances they found themselves in before they were rescued. The vets believe these behaviors will fade away as they learn to trust in a safe, warm, loving environment. However, Angels Among Us very much wants to keep this little family together.
Both Allie and Sloan have been fully vetted, have been microchipped, and both have or will be spayed/neutered before being adopted into their forever homes. They are a healthy, wonderful, loving, playful pair who long to have a family and children to love and play with – especially little Sloan. Won’t you consider giving this lovely pair the forever home they so much deserve?
