Pair-Fection! Meet Mocha and Lola!

What's better than one dog? Two dogs! We currently have four bonded pairs up for adoption. Meet one of our awesome twosomes.
Mother/daughter act Mocha and Lola came to us when their family could no longer care for them. If you're walking through adoptions in the morning, it's common to miss them entirely. The two of them like to spread their blankets out all over their room, roll up in them and burrow. They're so adept at this that spotting them can be a 'Where's Waldo' experience.

What surprises most people is not their disappearing act, but who's who in this little family. Tiny Lola is actually big Mocha's mom. Mocha tends to be more outgoing and energetic and Lola is a more reserved but loves her lap time. She's also a Mom of the Year candidate - when her burly daughter feels like roughhousing Lola never loses her patience.

These two love walks, attention and each other. While Lola occasionally appreciates some one-on-one with time with people she's always happy to return to Mocha. And Mocha is happiest when her mom is around.

There are many advantages to adopting a twosome. They can be more content being left alone on long days. If you love dogs and want more than one, bringing home a bonded pair takes the stress out of introducing unfamiliar dogs. Even if you (or someone you know) is only looking for a singleton, try spending some time with our pairs and ask a counselor about adoption scholarships and companion pricing.
