Pets Of The Week: Bonded Pair Of English Bulldogs & Little Tabby Penelope
Today's adoptable pets are from Ace of Hearts, an organization that rescues from the city's shelters. Ace of Hearts rescues ALL breeds and doesn't discriminate. Hurray!
Meet Bulldog babes, Caroline and Marley. These gorgeous gals are 2 year old bonded English Bulldogs who were dumped at a shelter, possibly by a breeder. Caroline and Marley are sweethearts who have two times the love to give to a special someone or family. This duo is very affectionate, eager to please, and will shower you with big bulldog kisses. They're very smart, know basic commands like sit and stay, and walk well on leash. As mentioned, this pair is bonded and love each other to pieces and are simply not themselves when they're apart. Caroline and Marley are looking for the perfect forever home where they can continue to share their lives together.
Penelope is a nice little Tabby who is a bit on the shy side. She would love to be your one and only (no other felines in the household, please) and also to live in a relaxed home. Penelope tends to hide at first, but eventually she'll come out of her hidey hole, when she feels secure. Give her lots of love, TLC, her favorite dry cat kibble and a nice cardboard scratcher and Penelope will settle in nicely. Ace of Hearts' mobile adoption event is today, Saturday July 16th from 1pm-4pm at the Ptco in West Hollywood. Visit the Ace of Hearts website for more information on adopting or to find other pets looking for love.
