Once she had recovered, she was placed in a foster home, but not the same one as her friend Bart. Babs suddenly became nervous and reserved, and at first, no one could figure out why. The rescue had no idea at that point just how bonded the pair was — until Babs decided to let them know.
“When we first rescued them they went into separate foster homes and Babs totally shut down,” Laura Cherry, the pair’s foster mom, told The Dodo. “We decided to bring Bart over to see how she would react, and when he came, she was a totally different dog. It was obvious at that point they are a bonded pair and we have kept them together ever since.”
