Dyson and Hoover are a bonded pair of siblings who came to their foster mom unable to walk. We don't know the exact cause, but their symptoms are similar to children with cerebral palsy. Dyson occasionally needs help changing his positions, but Hoover can move around by rolling and flipping. They both do very well in a large padded playpen, and they have a walker with a sling so they can change positions and interact with some of the other foster dogs.

They eat a gruel mixture. Dyson can eat on his own but Hoover needs to be syringe fed. Dyson is also on a muscle relaxant to reduce his spasticity, but none of this affects their sweet disposition. Both boys love meeting people, their little tails wag so fast and they give puppy nuzzles and kisses.

Dyson and Hoover must be adopted together. They will fuss and complain if one pup is picked up and the other one is not. But not to worry, they are so adorable people will be fighting over who gets to hold them! If they are placed on opposite sides in their space, Hoover will complain and roll/flip/move to get close to Dyson. They can get really rowdy and vocal when they play together which is just the cutest thing to see.

Can you open your home and your heart for this special pair of pups?
