My story:

Bunny and Cottontail originally were brought to ARC in 2012, with their brother, Thumper.  Thumper was adopted by himself, and the two girls were adopted together.   Bunny and Cottontail made their way with their adopter to South Carolina, but in 2018, they were surrendered to a shelter there.  Fortunately, since their microchip still listed ARC in its history, the South Carolina shelter contacted us to let us know what happened.  In quite typical fashion, we decided to go get these hounds and give them a second chance at a forever home.  

 Bunny is a sweet and beautiful girl.  She is smart, and is a little less demanding for attention compared to Cottontail.  Cottontail is quite the character.  She is a total love bug and really wants all the attention for herself. These two do get along very well, however, in the shelter they will occasionally get overly worked up by other dogs, and sometimes will “redirect” and get too rough with each other.  This is unlikely to be a problem in a home environment.  As wonderful of an environment as we try to create at ARC, it can get loud, and other barking dogs walking past a lodge can be stressful for certain individuals. 

Bunny and Cottontail are currently lodged separately, but do enjoy walks and playtime together.  As such, we are not requiring them to be adopted together at this time.  We feel that if each of them could find a wonderful home, they will thrive.  But, if one family wanted to offer the two of them a home together, we believe that could make a very happy end to this story.   

My ideal home:

We'd love a playful and affectionate home together, if possible!
