Avalon and Matteo are a bonded pair of friends, rescued from the streets of Memphis as strays. A good Samaritan started feeding them, and then they were taken in, vetted, spayed and neutered, but have been languishing in boarding for far too long. It is their time to shine and find a loving home, fostered/adopted together, and get on with their happily ever after!

Both are great dogs, each with their own personality. They would make fine companions for an adopter with a larger yard for them to play in and/or who are able to take them on walks and adventures to satisfy their exercise requirements.

Avalon is the female, very people friendly, and loves Matteo, but can be dog selective especially with other lady dogs or dogs larger than her. She prefers to be The Queen Bee! And even though she loves Matteo, this girl loves her food and is not willing to share it with him or any other doggies, so she is fed separately without issue. She has not shown food aggressive with humans, but caution will need to be exercised even with older children and adults when food is involved. Avalon so enjoys human companionship of all ages. LOVES EVERYONE! She warms right up! She is crate trained and walks well on a leash and loves belly rubs (who doesn’t). She is eagerly awaiting her forever home.

Matteo is the male and is a little more shy than Avalon. He is a bit reluctant to interact or take treats at first, but after a few days, he feels comfortable. He now accepts whatever is offered without hesitation. He is fine around older kids, 13 and older, and enjoys being their friend. He is not food aggressive. He walks well on a leash and so enjoys taking for walks with Avalon. He is crate trained and once he warms up, he is an amazingly sweet dog that loves love!
He and Avalon get along great and love to play and roughhouse with each other. Matteo is looking for his forever home with his BFF, Avalon.

Perhaps you can offer this sweet couple a safe home where they can continue to learn what it means to be beloved family members.
