According to The Dodo, dogs Adonis and Apollo were both dumped off at a high-kill shelter in Texas by their owner earlier this month.
Cindy Droogmans, the founder of the A-Team Elite Rescue Dogs, a group that saves needy dogs from overcrowded shelters, rescued the bonded and scared pups and brought them to her veterinarian in Huntington, New York. Droogmans told The Dodo that the dogs were probably dumped "because they are heartworm positive, like most dogs in Texas," but luckily she said "they are in full treatment now."
"A bonded pair is always difficult to place, but look at them," Droogmans said. "How can they ever be split up?" Though it may be harder to find a home for two dogs, Droogmans is doggone determined to find a forever family for the pair.
