Animal Control Officers from Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police are looking for homes, hopefully one, for two dogs found last Thursday.
Jonie, a female white lab-pit bull mix, was found tending to Chachi, a male scraggly long hair Chihuahua mix, who was suffering from an eye infection. Veterinary staff at the Metro Animal Shelter were not able to save Chachi's ruptured eye, but they performed surgery to patch him up.
"It's not every day we get to see such devotion between two special dogs like this," said Animal Control Officer Christina Sutherin. "They are both such sweet animals. But the relationship they share just sets them apart. It would be wonderful if we could find a home that could take both of them.
The dogs will be cleared for adoption today. They are up to date on vaccines, are heartworm negative and Chachi has been been neutered.
