Pittie Best Friends Had To Be Adopted Together | The Dodo Adoption Day
February 29, 2020
They adore each other. Agatha and Jukebox
probably found each other on the streets. They were brought into
our shelter together. There’s space, but
they wanted to share one little bed.
When we separated them, they’d look for each other
like they were lost. Oh my gosh, where is the other one?
I need her. But it is so difficult to
adopt two dogs together. They had been here at Pima Animal Care
Center a long time. And it just didn’t happen, and it didn’t happen,
and it didn’t happen. We’re going to look at two dogs
that we saw on the internet. – I work for the
state of Arizona. – And I am twice retired.
A military career. – The house was too quiet
since our dog passed. – We hope that they’ll
make us whole again. – A very sweet dog. – It’s pretty neat
to me that they just fell in love with each other. – She’s so gentle.
– Yeah. – And seeing how
close they were, there was just no way we
could break that bond. – We had a little discussion. I think it’s important
to adopt them together. We said, “Let’s
take them home.” – I think it just kind of spread
all across the shelter. “Oh, they found a
home together.” “Oh my gosh. Really?” – “Yeah.”
We were so excited. That perfect family is
out there somewhere for these pets. And luckily, in their
case they showed up. – It’s a very strong
bond these two have. – Keeping them
together, I think, was the right thing to do. – Are you guys ready? – Okay. Let’s roll. – When we see a pair get
to spend the rest of their lives together like these two,
it is everything. It’s everything that we’ve
been working towards. It means that hard work
to keep them together really did pay off. – They just know that
they’re buddies. It’s very — I don’t
know how to explain it. It’s just an incredible bond. – Jukebox, he’s a little shy. They seem to keep
each other calm. – You like that out there, huh? – I want them to love
us the way we know we can love them. – Thank you for the kisses. – Would be good for both of us. – He’s ready. Oh, Okay. – Let’s go see your house! – Come in! Welcome home. Welcome to your new home. Where are we?
– There you go. There you go. – Once we came here
and opened the door and let them in the house,
they were just like, “Oh my gosh. We have a home.” I think he likes it, huh? – This place has got
all the treats in it. You can go see your back yard. – This is all yours. They have found
their forever home. They got very comfortable
pretty quick. – Oh. Oh, he’s peeing. He’s
peeing all over my feets! He peed. He peed. – Oh my God. – So, we’re trying to introduce
them to peanut butter, and he just peed
all over my feet. – Oh, it’s drool. Just
so everybody knows, it’s not pee. It’s a ton of drool on the floor.
Look at. – Yes, it is. – It was nice to be able
to put the beds back out, and to have that
wholeness again. That’s when I knew that
we did the right thing. – Oh! What did you
already tear off? – In the last week, I believe
that both of them know that this is it, and they’re not
going back to that shelter. And they have made
themselves very comfortable. – Better put yours on.
Come here, bud. Oh. – They share a
very special bond. – They certainly
compliment each other. – Jukebox still has
the puppy in him. He keeps us on our toes. – She’s all the way up.
There she goes. Miss Agatha, she’s
just kisses and love. – And the way she shares
her love and affection just pulls at my heart.
And here she is. [laughing] Don’t know what
they’ve been through, but we’re gonna make
the rest of their time like this.
– I mean, look at this. – I think people can
really learn a lot about unconditional love
from these two dogs. – Say goodnight, everyone.
