Description:

***PLEASE NOTE WE WILL ONLY BE CONSIDERING APPLICATIONS FOR ADOPTING THE BOYS TOGETHER.*** ***Please note the boys have grown since this last photoshoot*** The adoption fee for the boys is $400 total for both. Meet Gary and Milton! These boys have quite a story in their young little lives. STH rescued a female min pin/chi mix from the shelter who was having severe seizures. We quickly rushed her to emergency care. With her initial exam, we found out she was pregnant. Only 48 hours into her emergency care, she gave birth. Gary was born on October 8th and little Milton was born the next day on the 9th. Sadly, mom was physically unable to care for them and they were moved to a foster home when they were just 24 and 12 hours old. We lost mom a week later and vowed to take care of her boys the best we could in her memory. 'The boys,' as their foster mom likes to call them, were challenging. They needed around-the-clock care. They lived in an incubator initially. We suspect that they were premies. Both needed to be tube-fed until they were stronger and could begin to suckle the bottle. Little Milty was tube-fed longer as he would aspirate the formula through a bottle. In time they began to gain weight and grow. Gary grew more and quickly became the bigger, older brother to little Milton. Milty the Mouse seemed like he would be runt forever... but eventually he grew. Still he remains tiny! Then in late January, mighty Milton took a jump and landed wrong, breaking his front right leg. Within days, he underwent surgery to have a plate and six screws put in. Milty did well during his recovery, but it ws decided that after his leg mostly healed, it would be best to take the hardware out. Milty underwent surgery again. Fast-forward to today... he has recovered and his leg is healed. He was such a trooper through it all. But because he is Milty and does nothing 'normal'... It was also discovered that he has luxating patellas in both knees! This boy! Common in toy breeds, here is some more info: “A luxating patella, in which a kneecap moves out of its normal position, is a very common occurrence in dogs. While small or toy breeds, such as Chihuahuas, Yorkshire terriers, and Pomeranians, are the most prone to a luxated patella, this orthopedic condition can affect all breeds of dogs. Sometimes a luxating patella can be treated with physical therapy and medication. However, surgery may be necessary if your dog's condition is severe and causes them significant pain. Luckily, many dogs with this disease don't even need surgery to resume their normal active life. Sometimes all it takes is a little rest, relaxation, or physical therapy. But even if your dog does need to go through surgery to restore their range of motion, they probably won't be down and out for too long. As soon as a few months after their procedure, they're likely to be back to their same playful selves.” It's hard to predict how things will go, but what we do know is the boys' potential home MUST financially be stable enough to be able to care for both of them and potentially any required surgeries to keep them healthy and pain-free. Now... more about them. Both are very affectionate. Gary is more cautious to new situations with people and places and can get scared. He's a soft soul. Loves to give kisses. Milton seems to go with the flow a little better. A true happy boy and a wiggle butt. They are not yet completely potty-trained. They use pee pad-trained since they were born in the dead of winter and simply too little to brave the cold. Their new home will need to be dedicated to training them outside. They will need a very secure yard with no small openings to get out. They spend time together wrestling, playing with toys, and even getting on each other's nerves. True brothers. They love to sleep in hidey beds, under the covers, and be on your lap. They are good around other dogs and do very well with cats. Cats have been some of their best playmates growing up.
