Dogs recently lost owner, originally adopted by ARL in 2018
Franklin, a 9-year-old Shar Pei, and Frieda, a 6-year-old Shar Pei, are no strangers to the Animal Rescue League of Boston (ARL).
The pair came to ARL initially in late 2018 as part of a transport of dogs from North Carolina, this, after sadly losing their owner.
The dogs won over everyone with their sweet demeanor and were able to find a new home quickly.
Sadly, their owner recently passed away, and the pair came back to ARL’s Dedham Animal Care and Adoption Center to find a new home together to spend their retirement years.
Franklin and Freida had been together for their whole lives, and lean on each other, so it was important for them to find a new home together.
Senior animals, like Franklin and Frieda, make wonderful pets, and typically do not require the attention, training and patience that comes with their younger counterparts.
However, they are sometimes overlooked by potential adopters in search of puppies, kittens, or young adult animals.
While Franklin and Freida are fun-loving and extremely friendly, ARL was well aware that it would take a special home to take in not just one, but two senior dogs. While healthy overall, the pair do have medical needs that need attention from time to time — Franklin is prone to ear infections, while Frieda’s allergies can cause dry skin and/or ear infections.
ARL knows there is a perfect match for every animal, sometimes it just takes a little longer to find the perfect situation.
Thanks to some local news coverage, Franklin and Frieda were introduced to the masses, and shortly after, they found their new home, and are now settling in with their new family!
