Sassy and Lizzie

Sassy and Lizzie will be at the adoption event.  They work a kissing booth and give sweet kisses for a donation to ARNO.

Sassy was found on the street.  She was very sad and would not eat.  ARNO found the owner, but due to the owner's own medical issues, she made the difficult choice to ask ARNO to find a great home for her and her sister Lizzie!  They were reunited and the volunteers at ARNO realized why Sassy was so sad.  Sassy and Lizzie are a bonded pair from the same litter.  They are 11 and a half years old, but Sassy loves to play fetch.  She adores her ball and will play with it all day long.  They are loving towards each other and their humans.  They play with each and sleep together.  They are very sweet and easy going.  They are both puppy pad trained.  Since they are seniors, ARNO offers hospice care which means that you cover regular vet care and ARNO covers all extraordinary care for life.

The adoption fee is $300 for the pair, and includes spay, up to date on shots, and a chip.  These dogs are in a foster home.
