Ellie & Sparrow in West Linn, OR

Just Adopted!

Here's a picture of Ellie and Sparrow with their new family...

Ellie and Sparrow are the very best of girlfriends. These 7-year-old girls are not from the same parents but have grown up together as sisters since they were puppies and are a bonded pair. They’ll surely melt your heart with their big brown eyes. 

As most girlfriends do, they love sunbathing together on the patio, riding in the car, playing fetch, playing in the yard, hanging out wherever you are, and they absolutely love going on walks. The dogs are great companions with one another. Where one goes, the other surely follows.

Sparrow is confident, loving and affectionate. She steps right up when meeting new people by introducing herself first and asking for the first chin rub and pat on the head. She loves to give kisses. She injured her right knee in the past, but it is not problematic for her. Sparrow has a couple of pounds to lose so she needs a family that will be dedicated to taking them on walks and monitoring their food.

Even though Ellie can be a little bit shyer, she loves to follow her foster mom around the house and wags her tail 99% of the time just to display her general happiness. Her tail goes into high gear when you talk to her and tell her how beautiful she is. She is a total love and even has a heart shape Blenheim marking on her side. She has a grade 2 heart murmur, and she is in good health overall. 

Both girls have been perfect angels when getting baths. They have not been acclimated to a crate while in foster care. They have done well sectioned to a space in the house with a baby gate when left alone and while sleeping at night, although their preference would be to sleep in their owner’s bedroom, one on the bed and the other on the bathroom floor where it’s cooler. A securely fenced in yard is important for Sparrow and Ellie because they have been known to dig in an effort to meet neighbor dogs.

Before coming into rescue, Ellie and Sparrow were well cared for by their loving Mom. Her housing situation changed and she was not able to secure housing that would allow her dogs. They have come with medical and dental care history records. Both have been micro chipped. 

Ellie and Sparrow have been a pleasure to have in their foster home and will be a wonderful addition to a family ready for some sweet Cavalier love and kisses!
