Baxter, the son, is incredibly protective of his mama. He can’t stand to be without her, and therefore they have to be adopted together, no matter what.
“Baxter is lost without her so we keep them in the same kennel even though technically we're not supposed to,” Joan said.
When they’re not curled up together in their kennel, Baxter and Kaiah love to roam around together outside. They’re addicted to the freedom of being able to run and play unrestricted, and neither of them are super great at walking on a leash, so the shelter is insisting that whomever adopts them must have a fenced in yard, so that both dogs will always be able to experience that joy.
