4 Years Old
From Fred and George's Foster Parent July 13: Fred and George are twin 4-year-old Spaniel mix brothers picked up from the (San Jose / Stockton?) area the first week of July. They were dropped off by an owner that had too many dogs and they had clearly not spent much time inside a home and had never been on-leash. They are unneutered, but are being scheduled for a vet visit for this. Originally placed in a foster home together, they are now in different houses to help them gain confidence and independence. Their foster folks are currently working on house training and leash walking. Fred is the slightly bigger brother at 15 pounds, and has a docile, timid personality. He has become very attached to his foster dad, is a sweet snuggler and has taken to leash walks well, getting more and more confident on each excursion. He is pretty submissive and plays well with other dogs at the park. Has a little separation anxiety so would benefit from an owner who is home, who wants a constant loyal companion, and who can continue with consistent house training. Both were great with a 10-year-old in the foster home, and will most likely do well with any children and be a great family dog. Have not seen them interact with cats.
