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 10 lbs, white/tan, 4 yrs old and Maltese Shih Tzu (the underbite is a dead giveaway and they have the same eyes); Moki is 11 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).


This pair was placed in a home and returned after two weeks.  Unfortunately, it was not the right fit.  Like siblings, they occasionally get on each other’s nerves and Moki can get over stimulated, and they fight.  They can also get overstimulated on walks when they see other dogs/people, so this needs to be handled.  They are better with very calm environments, people and activity.  We decided there were more pros than cons and have chosen not to split them up.  They need a home that can manage them, as we have, without issue.  They will definitely need training…actually, the family will need it also!

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!  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 mostly okay with that (except when he isn’t)!  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.  

Are you up for the challenge of two mini mighty pups who want to be your forever kids?  

Hooray! This dog has been adopted!
