Hi! We are Buck and Ike, the doubly sweet duo! We were rescued from a backyard where our owners had us chained up, and we are loving our new lives with MLRR now. We're about 4 years old and incredibly handsome, as you can see! We're still a bit shy and can be timid about meeting new people and loud noises but are getting more and more brave and comfortable in our foster home every day! Once we learn to trust you, we really open up and our tails never stop wagging, and we give all the kisses!
Our foster mom says, “Buck looks to his big brother Ike to lead the way as he's more outgoing.” We walk great on leash when we're feeling safe and confident, and ride quietly in the car once we understand it is a safe place. We don't get on furniture and are not destructive but do need to learn commands and how to play with toys. We respond well to positive reinforcement and are quick to learn.
So … who is ready to open their hearts to two loving brothers?
Buck and Ike are a bonded pair; they have been through so much and find comfort and confidence in one another, so they will be adopted out together. Also, they are Heartworm positive (don’t worry – it’s not contagious!) and will begin treatment in August. MLRR will continue to pay for their HW treatment after adoption, but they will need to maintain a low activity lifestyle during treatment.
