====================================================
2 Friendly Lansdowne dogs in need of home
====================================================

Mitzy and Bitzy currently reside by themselves in a back yard...One of their owners passed away and the other moved to an out of state assisted living facility.  Surrounding neighbors are taking turns feeding them.  Mitzy and Bitzy are in good health and have no problems.  They are just older and most rescues and the Humane Society do not want older dogs and/or do not have room right now. We are not calling Animal Control because they are good dogs and we'd rather see if they can get a home before they get put down.

They are listed on a couple of sites but it is getting cold outside and they are not the first in line for adoptions like the younger dogs.  They are sweet and love people, tennis balls, walks and a yard for playing. 
Do you know of someone who can give them home?

·        Continuous care history at SouthPark Animal Hospital (704-523-3457, 5208 Park Road) – healthy with zero problems for entire lives.
·        Both love to chase tennis balls and squirrels.
·        Follow verbal commands well.
·        They have been a tandem for 7 years.
·        Firecrackers/thunder make Mitzy a little nervous, but no aggressive behavior.
·        Both dogs were "mascots" to 5+ club soccer teams/ do well with 18+ hyper athletes - all ages.
·        Originally adopted from close relatives that had them as puppies in Georgia.

Mitzy: German Shepherd - full blooded, 10.5 years old (medium-sized female)

Bitzy: Jack Russell - full blooded, 9.5 years old (short hair female)

** Call Patrick and he'll set up a time for you to come in and visit them.  They need a bath, but they clean up well!
