From what we have observed with these dogs at the shelter, they do not seem to cope when left on their own. These dogs have shown signs of having separation anxiety & become distressed when left alone. We recommend that these dogs go to homes where they have constant company from humans or other dog pals. And a home where the people understand the dogs needs & are willing to work with training them how to cope & learn independence if they do want to leave the dog alone down the line.


The age of the dogs has been estimated by veterinarians based on their general health and particularly from their teeth status. It is an informed estimate made by veterinarians and should be used only as a guide.
