2 Dogs Need A Home - The casita I rented came with 2 dogs. The first day they were a little skittish but over the past few days have adjusted well. They greet me when I come back from town and they bark if someone approaches the casita. The male looks like a Sheppard cross and I think still growing. He had a collar on which I had to cut off since it was too tight. The female is a very sweet dog and still young. It would be best if someone could take both since they are such good buddies. The reality is I cannot take them with me otherwise I would. They are both fantastic dogs and deserve a home. Please email me if you would like to see some photos of these adorable dogs. - Gus, gus_dej [- at -] hotmail.com, 556084-3442
