It’s an unusual friendship between a young Chihuahua dubbed Jerry and his extremely friendly pit bull bonded friend, dubbed Tom. Brought into the Maricopa County Animal Care and Control on November 17, frightened, little Jerry clung to Tom’s back for reassurance and safety. Even when the two fall asleep at night, Jerry is always tucked in between Tom’s paws. That’s what friends are for!
The boys have been attracting a lot of attention on Facebook and were first spotted by advocates as the two cuddled up together. “Tom is a two-year-old neutered male Pittie and Jerry is a two-year-old neutered male Chihuahua mix. Everyone that has met them is amazed by how bonded the pair is with each other. Snuggling close together at all times. Because of that, Tom and Jerry must go to a home together.” Both dogs are being treated for upper respiratory infections, and it is important they find a home away from the shelter environment. The two must be adopted together; who would have the heart to separate them?
It was hoped the boys would have found homes by Thanksgiving, but just a few days have since passed. Please share their photos and story with family, friends and social media contacts. Check out Tom’s short video here. Sharing saves lives, and every life counts. You can visit and adopt Tom and Jerry at the East Valley Animal Care Center located at 2630 W. Rio Salado Pkwy in Mesa, Arizona. (Phone: (602) 506-7387). The adoption fee for both dogs is $100. They are altered, vaccinated for rabies and will go home with their county dog license.
