'Bonded' besties hope to be adopted together at County shelter

Posted August 4

— Even man's best friend needs his own best four-legged buddy sometimes.

Meet Bonnie and Clyde, a "bonded" pair of besties up for adoption at the Maricopa County Animal Care and Control (MCACC) shelter.

The two pups were brought in by a stranger who found them together and we realized they are "close."

They were kept together in a kennel, and it wasn't long before everyone could tell they are inseparable.

Staffers tell us they are ALWAYS together, even when sleeping.

Clyde (the smaller one) will sit on Bonnie's back when they are sitting still. He will also ride on her back when they walk around.

The shelter really wants them to find a home together because they are truly bonded to one another.

Clyde doesn't even like to see her Bonnie ahead of him when out on a leash!

You can see more of their story on the shelter's Facebook page.

Their combined adoption fee is $150.

The shelter is located at:

2500 S. 27th Avenue

(27th Avenue, South of Durango)

Phoenix, AZ 85009

People can come in weekdays 11 6 p.m. and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekends to adopt them or find other adoptable pets.
