Barely Used Pets (dogs)

Please meet Tico and Tado, a pair of miniature poodle brothers. They are 7 years old and are neutered, up to date on vaccinations, flea treatment and worming. Their momma has dementia and could no longer take care of her beloved boys. The boys are good with other dogs, cats and they like kids. They are house-trained and are a very loving pair. They love to be cuddled. To keep them together, the adoption fee for the pair is $200.
