Meet Siana (above) and Louie (below with Sarah)! Siana and Louie are two of the Tallahassee Big Dog Rescue flood dogs that came to Tallahassee from Louisiana on August 20th after a 24-hour road trip. They were found stranded on a porch of a vacant and flooded home. When they were rescued, the porch was about to be underwater as well. Despite posted notices and return trips to the home, no owner could be found, so they became part of the refugee/rescue dogs that came to Tallahassee where foster homes awaited them. Siana is a female terrier mix, about one year old and 15 pounds; Louie is a male dachshund mix, about 18 months old and 12 pounds.
In the picture above, it's like Siana is saying, "I just washed my hair, and I can't do a thing with it!" Both Siana and Louie have settled down nicely and act as if they were once beloved pets with loving owners. They both have pretty good house manners and are trying hard to learn even more. They have learned their new names, how to sit for treats, which they both take very gently, and come when called; we think they are smart little cookies! They both play well with other dogs, are fine with cats and like to cuddle. They walk well on a leash and don’t mind being in a crate for short periods of time. Still, we want them to have a fenced yard of their own. Having a doggy playmate would be great, too (maybe even adopted as a pair!). Siana's wirey coat is the low-maintenance, non-shedding type that makes her easy to bathe and brush; Louie is a snap to bathe, and his short reddish/gold coat just gleams!
Both Siana and Louie are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, micro-chipped, heart worm negative, and waiting for their new forever homes. Might it be yours? Visit Tallahassee Big Dog Rescue here for more information on adoption. Both Siana and Louie are listed under "small dogs." In all, TBDR rescued 18 dogs and six cats from the Louisiana flooding. *Note .... my daughter Sarah is not available for adoption, no matter how adorable she and Louie look together! :-)
