Prior to December 2013, Parker and Momo knew the streets of Riverside, Calif., as their only "home." The bonded pair walked the streets by the side of their homeless owner, but when the weather became too severe, and their homeless guardian was unable to properly care for them, a plea for help was made.
Lori Rich, of Taking it to the Streets with Lori and Shira, eventually found a family who offered to take the dogs in for a few nights - the family's own dog had cancer and anything longer than a few days was not advised by their veterinarian.
It did not take much time for the family to fall in love with the pair and the thought of turning them back to the streets, where their meals, safety and comfort were not guaranteed, was too much to bear. The request for another foster family remained, and the family generously offered to keep the dogs until one could be found...but six months have now passed and nobody has been decided to adopt the pair.
The rescue agency, Kisses and Paws, is hoping to help Momo and Parker find their way to a new home; the dogs are bonded and must be kept together.
A bit of information about these cuties who are currently located in Corona, California:
We are around three and a half years old. We are spayed/neutered, microchipped, and current on our shots. We are good with other dogs, and we don't have any food aggression - although Momo can be a bit possessive of her treats! We haven't been tested around cats. We don't have anything against children per se, but we would really like to be the "only children" so that we get all of the attention. We would love a home where someone is home most of the time, since that's what we've been used to our entire lives - even with our foster family.
