Fort Mill, SC -- Baxter and Trevor -- Two Little Old Men Who Need Our Help! Baxter is a little brown Corgi mix and Trevor is a little black Pug mix. They have lived together all their lives. And now in their golden years their owner no longer wants them. They are healthy and alert and affectionate. They will make wonderful companions for a senior person who needs a couple of good friends. They are very gentle and sweet natured and need a home together where they can love and be loved again. Contact ghp0828@gmail.com for more info. Addt'l info: These two old doggies were surrendered by a woman because she didn't want them any longer. In the last few years they were living outdoors in a pen with no heat, no shelter from the sun, and mold in their food bowls. They were never allowed inside the house. Animal Adoption League took them in and their foster mom has nursed them back to health and socialized them. They do well with children and dogs. Pug mix Trevor is fine with cats. Baxter is very curious about them and will follow them but does no harm. Both are now potty trained. They walk on a leash, ride in the car and are very active and alert. They are both neutered and up to date on their vaccinations. They will make great companions for a senior single or couple. Baxter is about 11 and Trevor is about 12. They weigh less than 20 lbs. so they are very manageable. They are healthy and have many good years of life ahead. Sweet, sweet dogs with lots of personality!
