Dallas and Austin are brothers who were surrendered by an owner whose dog had puppies and  needed help finding  homes for them.  Lucky for Dallas and Austin, they ended up with LDCRF and are ready for a permanent loving home.   These little guys were born on Easter Sunday, 2011.  They instinctively know to use the bathroom outside and are well on their way to being housebroken and crate trained.  Naturally, they enjoy each other’s company and would be happiest with a canine companion of similar size, and activity level, and temperament.  They need a human companion who has plenty of time and desire to devote to the needs of a growing pup!
