Hello our names are Goose and Juju and we want snuggles!
***Juju and Goose are not a CDR dog and have not been evaluated by CDR.

Please contact by above phone or email to apply to adopt them.***
Rainbow of Hope originally took us in about 7 years ago when our mom died and there was nowhere for us to go. We were then adopted by our current mom and dad about 6 years ago, but there has been a lot of change there with the addition of a baby and another one on the way, so we are looking for a new home maybe without the energy of small children or too much chaos!
We are both very sweet and just want a lap to sit on and someone to love on us. We are very low key and not very high energy. I (Goose) am more playful than my sister Juju. I love to play fetch, squeaky toys are my favorite and I’ll even tug-o-war with you! I’m not a huge fan of balls, squeakies and plush toys are the ones I love the most. I have been my mom’s little shadow. I follow her everywhere, even to the bathroom! I like to be right there and don’t want to miss anything! My sister Juju is a love muffin. She loves sitting on your lap and all the belly rubs she can get. She likes to play fetch too but mainly because she just is trying to prevent me from getting the toy! Juju is most happy up on a pillow or blanket on the couch where she can be the queen of the castle!
Although we haven’t had any formal obedience training, we do not pull on our leashes when we walk. We also don’t generally chase people, bikes, cars or other animals when we walk. Also, we will come when you call us and we are crate trained. We love our crate and should be kept in them when you are not at home, since we get a little anxious by ourselves and will have accidents in the house if left alone. Sometimes we need to be crated to prevent accidents when our new human sister is home because she makes us nervous, and then we sometimes have accidents. If you say “go to bed,” we will head right to our crates!
We also get a little nervous in the car, but we settle down after a bit and we don’t get car sick or anything. We are good at the vet and at the groomers.
We like all people. We are very friendly even when we meet new people or children, although with small children we will bark a little and be a bit guarded. It’s not that we want to bite anybody—Certainly not! But since our new human baby sister was born, we are a bit nervous about the noise and unpredictable quick movements of very small children. In general if we get nervous around children, we will just try to remove ourselves from the situation. Another reason to have our crates nearby and open. For this reason we probably shouldn’t live with small children or stay overnight much with them. We have also lived with all kinds of other animals including cats, horses and even donkeys!
- Cuddles & Snuggles are number 1! We want to be the center of attention, please!
- Following mom EVERYWHERE!
- Hanging on the couch, on a pillow or blanket, as queen of the mountain!
- Squeaky and plush toys, but this falls way down on the list compared to cuddling and snuggling with our humans!
Why I am looking for a new home
Ever since we moved and a new human baby was added to our family we have become increasingly anxious and started having accidents in the house. Our human mom and dad have to be away from home more due to work and other obligations. Our mom and dad discussed the issue with our vet and she believes that the messing in the house is due to separation anxiety and anxiety due to our age and changing lifestyles. We have started on some medicine which has seemed to help some however we heard there is another baby on the way and we will be moving again. Because of these reasons and the stress it causes me and Juju, we are hoping to find a home where we will not have to spend long periods of time alone and perhaps with a couple or family with older children that will be able to give us the time and attention our current mom and dad want for us, but are unable to give us themselves.
Juju and I have been kept current with our veterinary care. We will need ongoing care to assess the need for ongoing medication and/or behavior modification to help with our anxiety if it continues in our new home.
These sweet little girls deserve more than their current mom and dad can give them. They feel that the girls deserve a quiet home and a family that has time to give them all the attention that they need. They are an elderly pair that just want to live out the rest of their lives snuggled up to someone that loves them.
