Six year old canine best friends, Chicky, a Chow Chow, and Goofy, a terrier, were surrendered to the Carson Animal Care Center in Los Angeles together and by the same owner.
Despite having spent their entire lives together, shelter workers decided to separate the boys into different kennels. Immediately, both dogs began whining and refused to eat. It wasn’t until shelter workers reunited the dogs that they finally began to eat again.
Unfortunately, while Chicky was being treated by a veterinarian for an eye infection, he became aggressive and snapped at the doctor. While Goofy was still available for adoption to the public, Chicky was placed on a “rescue-only” list, meaning that only a rescue organization could pull him from the shelter.
It seemed highly unlikely that Chicky and Goofy would find the forever home, together, that they both longed for.
That was until Katy DePasquale of New York heard the dogs’ story and became determined to adopt the pair. DePasquale contacted Christine Downs, who runs the rescue organization Bark Party, who agreed to help.
Because of their past, both dogs are in need of medical attention before they can go home to their new forever family in New York. But their new human is committed to providing them the very best care.
