MEET MOKI AND LOKI….and while we didn’t name them, they are hilarious and the names seem to suit them!  We’re not sure if this duo are brothers, but they are definitely a bonded pair.  Loki is a little smaller, at 8 lbs, white/tan, 4 yrs old and Maltese Shih Tzu (the underbite is a dead giveaway and they have the same eyes); Moki is 10 lbs, tri colored, 4 yr old Shih Tzu.  When they were brought to the shelter, they were a mess and the shelter shaved them (See below).


Almost as soon as they arrived, they bonded to the foster.  They were giving us love and kisses and rolling all over us like they had been our dogs for years!  Obviously, from the way they looked at the shelter, these two characters did not had a wonderful life.  Moki was so matted he was unrecognizable; Loki looks pretty good in this picture, but looks are deceiving.  He was a matted, smelly mess! 

Moki is the more outgoing/dominant of the two.  He loves toys, great on walks and does his business outside (but no promises he won’t mark to remind you he has arrived!).  Definitely not shy!  The shelter told us they had kennel cough (they don’t) so they didn’t neuter them and he likes to show other dogs who the boss is!  They will be neutered before adopted.   Loki isn’t much of a trickster, he follows Moki’s lead and has come around quickly.  He likes to chase after toys, but Moki gets there first and Loki is okay with that!  Neither of them like to be ignored and they will let you know by barking for your attention, so they need a home where people will be around for them.  Kids would be great, as they don’t have a mean bone in their skinny little bodies!  They are great eaters and we are trying to fatten them up a bit!

They just arrived and we are still learning more about them.  They are a bonded pair and they will not be split up.
