Fall in love with ‘golden oldies’ at shelter after owner met with bad times

It’s Sunday, and honestly there’s no better day than to fall in love with two 12-year-old bonded seniors whose owner became homeless and is facing some really hard times. Of course, Neeno and Bella are lost without their human, and now they are hugging each other at the Maricopa County Animal Care & Control hoping someone will adopt them together, and allow them to share their love with a new family and each other again.

Check out their brief reel here:


This is what we know about the golden oldies thus far. Neeno, the pittie mix knows basic commands and Bella, the Chihuahua does fine with larger dogs. Both have been described by the staff and volunteer at the shelter as friendly and affectionate. In the best day, it is hoped these two sweethearts can find a home together.

we’re hoping they can find a home where they can keep on loving each other for the rest of their lives.
