Also hoping for the best and that you can adopt them.

Our animal control is horrible, they claim to keep dogs for 10 days, but they are usually PTS after three days, sometimes even less.

I'm so excited!!!

Got a call this afternoon from the pet agency taking care of these two gorgious dogs and we had a very nice and long talk about the dogs, their current health conditions, temperament, and many other things and also reviewed my adoption application information. They had really liked the fact that we had adopted our Rhett at age 7 and gave him all the love and care that he needed until his recent passing this summer at age 14.

In short, we are planning to make a trip to Evansville sometime this next upcoming week before New Years and get a chance to meet the dogs. I told them if we were acceptable to them as the new prospective owners, I would like to move forward in the adoption process and I believe they were happy to hear that.

Keeping my hopes up!

I am so excited for you too and can't wait to hear the outcome. These dogs would be very lucky to have you for parents!! How old are they and what are their names?

No names as of yet...the male (darker dog) is thought to be about 7 or 8 and the female (lighter dog) a little younger at maybe 6. The female was microchipped but apparently the actual owner registration was never sent in.

Here's the pics of the two:

I'm so excited for you as well!

What I do not understand is how someone isn't looking for their two dogs - and with one being micro-chipped even.

Clearly, you'll give them a better home than they had before.

Yes, I couldn't understand why someone hadn't been looking for them or why they haven't already been claimed by this time.

The agency also thought that it's possible that they weren't very well taken care of by the previous owners. The male was covered in ticks and had to be shaved and is now being tested for lyme disease by the vet. I really get the indication that they were dumped off somewhere. So sad and it breaks my heart to think of that scenario. I would be more than happy to take them in.
