The St. Louis Senior Dog Project is a not-for-profit dog rescue organization specializing in older dogs but taking in and finding homes for dogs of all ages...even puppies. Meet and adopt your new best friend 11 to 3 Saturday/Sunday, June 2 and 3 in the Kirkwood Petco near I-44 and Lindbergh or 11 to 3 Saturday, June 2, in the St. Louis-Mackenzie Petco at 7279 Watson Rd. To see which dogs will be there as well as other adoptable dogs, go Here. We still have some money in This Dixie Fund to cover all but $50 of the fee for Red Ribbon dogs, generally those that are 8 years and older or have special needs that make them hard to place.
They may look alike. They may both be chihuahuas. But their backgrounds couldn't be more different.
Taco Pete spent his first nine years in a commercial breeding facility. He came to us from an auction. He was cute and sweet but a little shy.
Primrose came to us as a 6 or 7 year old stray who had been someone's pet. She'd spent a couple months in a shelter waiting for someone to adopt her. When no one did, she was at risk for euthanasia. We took her in and found she was housebroken, loving and full of kisses. She knew no strangers.
To Taco Pete, everyone was a stranger.
But then Taco Pete met Primrose, and everything changed. They became best pals and in the process Primrose taught Taco Pete how to be a pet. Now they are together all the time.
So we just can't see breaking them up and sending them to separate homes -- at least not without trying to find them a home together. We'd like that so much that we're offering a special adoption fee of $100 for the pair. They will both be at the St. Louis-Mackenzie Petco 11 to 3 Saturday, June 2, waiting for that special person or family to take them both.
Besides, they're so cute together. This is Taco Pete telling us how much he needs his best girl.
Come on people. Two cuties are twice the fun.
