We were originally owned by a hoarder in a southern state. Icky, yuck, not a good situation! But luckily they lost their home so all of us dogs and cats were surrendered to the local shelter, which was the start of a much better life! We are awesome girls! We are so happy in our fabulous foster home and so excited to find our own forever home soon!


We are adorable!! And are very bonded with each other. We groom each other, lick each other, snuggle next to each other and take care of each other!

This is Adele speaking now…let me tell you about myself! I am the super outgoing one of the two of us, just wildly (and hilariously) friendly and playful and jolly and silly and very, very affectionate with anyone and everyone! You are a human? I want to be your best friend!! Immediately! Want to pet me? Play with me? Snuggle with me? Yes!!!! Nothing makes me happier than interacting with humans (though I love interacting with dogs and cats too)!!

Taylor Swift here…my sister cracks me up. She’s super fun and sweet, and so am I, but in a much calmer, quieter way. I can be a little bit shy with people whom I don’t know, so while Adele will rush in and make friends right away, I will hang back and observe things a bit more, and then once I get to know you a bit, then my extremely sweet friendly, affectionate, loving side comes out. Just in a gentler, sweeter way. I’m not climbing all over you with my whole body wagging like crazy like Adele!

Adele and I also have a very “big sister/little sister” kind of dynamic, in the best way. I look out for her, keep an eye on her, make sure she is ok, and find her very amusing. I groom her often and we tend to snuggle up together quite a lot, though we also snuggle up with the other dogs in the foster home (or the cats)!

Our foster mom says that we are both smart and loyal. She says that Adele bonded with her in the first few minutes of arrival, while I took a few days to get comfortable and attach, but that both of our bonds are strong and beautiful and sweet and loving.

We both love to be scratched and scratched and petted and massaged! We love to snuggle up on the couch next to you while you read a book or watch tv! We love to hang outside in the fenced yard and keep you company while you do some gardening! We both love to go for walks, or to trot around in our fenced yard, but neither of us needs any super intense exercise. We were both pretty overweight when we arrived (Adele moreso than me, if that’s ok to say), so our daily walks are both super fun and interesting, as well as are helping us to slim down a little bit!


  • We are awesome with people! Sweet and friendly and loving!
  • We are awesome with all other dogs! Lovely and respectful and kind.
  • We are terrific with cats! Respectful and sweet!

Favorite Activities

  • We love hanging out with you!
  • Being petted! Being talked to! Being snuggled!
  • Going for walks around the block!
  • Hanging out with other dogs and cats!
  • Anything involving food!


We both have those “cocker spaniel ears” which means they need to be cleaned and taken care of regularly. Adele came with her ears in bad shape from previous neglect, so she has been getting daily ear cleanings and ear medications, and is going to go to the vet for a “deep cleaning under anesthesia” to really try to get everything all happy and healthy. My ear issues have been much milder, but both of us will need to have our ears taken care of probably for the rest of our lives, like most cocker spaniels do!

Otherwise, we are in terrific health, says our local awesome vet!


We are a super loving, super sweet, very easygoing and fun-loving pair of girls! We will make you laugh so much! If you are looking for fun, sweet, and very lovely dogs, we are the pair for you!
