Shelter Puts Out Plea To Find The Perfect Forever Home For Two Bonded German Shepherds

The Island Safe Harbor Animal Sanctuary in Port Clinton, Ohio has put out a plea to find the perfect forever home for two bonded German Shepherd brothers.

The 5-year-old dogs were sadly left without a home when their owner passed away, and now there’s a mission to find them a great replacement home. The only catch? The two dogs have to go to the same home.

Speaking with WTOL, local radio host and shelter friend Keith Hodkinson said: “It’s just important that we find the right person for these two dogs.”

Hodkinson received a call from the shelter for help transporting and caring for the two German Shepherds when their 90-year-old owner, Mr. Webb, sadly passed away.

He took to Facebook to share about the dogs, dubbed Blackie and Brownie, saying that none of Mr. Webb’s relatives wanted to take the dogs in after his passing. He added, “These poor babies lost their dad and they seemed so confused. They are about 140 pounds each but they are the most loving dogs.”

ISHAS followed-up on the dogs with a post of their own saying, “Their world has been turned up side down. They are still nervous and looking for their daddy (who has passed.)” They added that the two pups need a “job” to really thrive.

Before their owner passed away, Blackie and Brownie spent their days greeting customers at their owner’s shop, in addition to patrolling the two acres of the fenced-in yard they had access to. They could run and play, and spend time both together and apart.

The shelter wrote in their post that their biggest hope is to find the perfect home for Blackie and Brownie where they can live out their life as their late owner would’ve wanted. They wrote, “ALL ISHAS wants is the perfect home for them. I promised the owner in my prayers and dreams that we will do what we can to get them that HOME – that YARD and A JOB.
CAN ANYONE HELP US FULFILL OUR PROMISE TO THEIR DADDY. ??? Please consider these two handsome boys to be a member of your family.”

While placing two large, high-needs dogs into one family can be challenging, Keith Hodkinson was happy to report that ISHAS received “so many applications” for Blackie and Brownie that they actually stopped accepting new ones while they sorted through the pile they had!

Hopefully Blackie and Brownie find the perfect forever home where they can have all of their needs met and more.
