Plenty of Pets

Sheila and Robby are little cuddlers who need a home where they can remain together.

They’re from California and were taken into care when their owner went

They are extremely bonded and will only be adopted together. They’re about eight years old and need a low activity home where they can be close to people and cuddle on laps. They like to sleep together and with people, and get along with cats and well=behaved children.. They are not aggressive around other dogs but Robby is most comfortable when he and Sheila are the only dogs in a home. They both go outside and use peepads.

Sheila and Robby each weigh about 10 lbs. They are vaccinated and spayed/neutered. Their adoption fee is $350 and it goes back to help us save more dogs like Sheila and Robby.
