Caesar Augustus is a handsome, sturdy little fellow with a shiny black coat and tan and white markings.
Boots is a slender boy with long legs and tan boots. He has a smooth, sleek black coat with assorted smudges of tan and white, and adorable flop-over ears.
Devastatingly debonair duo seeks sympathetic singleton (wonderful woman only who is home for a good part of the day, with no other animals) for a lifetime commitment. Father-and-son bachelors are waiting for their special person, upon whom they can shower their devotion and entertain with their antics. These easy-to-care-for fellows adore each other and spend quite a lot of time cuddling and lying side by side. Outdoors, they particularly like to indulge in sports (running, wrestling, chasing balls) in their own fenced-in yard. Then they're ready to come in to spend a loving and companionable time with their person. As they are not good on a leash and they can get plenty of exercise in the yard, Caesar and Boots are perfect for those who don't relish dog walking! They do request a personal space of their own where they can retire to, should their person choose to enjoy the company of guests. Get your application in now to avoid missing this opportunity at a lifetime of double devotion!
This bundle of energy is a terrific companion who manages to be as eager to please as he is strongly opinionated! Caesar Augustus is housetrained and crate trained. He also loves cuddles and playing fetch. Caesar is an excellent and dedicated early alert system to possible intruders (otherwise known as friends at the door).
Although Caesar is cautious of visitors, he is a confident and clever little dog, and will give people a chance if they come bearing small treats.
Boots has so much love to give! Although he is very fearful when meeting new people, once he knows he can trust you, he is ready to shower you with affection. He will run right alongside you and loves to sit next to you, thrilled with hugs and pets. Boots is crate trained and house trained. He will sit patiently while you put on his halter or get ready to feed him.
He is also generally very fearful of unfamiliar dogs. With treats and patience, Boots has come a long way; but he will still need more time to work through this. When outside at his foster home, Boots is friendly with the two resident dogs, who are separated by a fence. They all run back and forth and kiss noses through the barrier.
Both Caesar Augustus and Boots are healthy, up-to-date on vaccinations, microchipped, neutered, and heartworm negative.
Both Caesar Augustus and Boots were surrendered to a local shelter when their family moved.
