Watch 12 News Arizona tonight for a feature on our big reunion!
Last fall, Achilles (12) and Seth (14) were surrendered to the Arizona Humane Society when their owner relocated and left them behind. This incredibly bonded pair had spent a lifetime together; eating, playing, and curling up together to sleep. Dedicated to keeping them together, AHS spent months promoting them, and their story was featured on the news. With no traction, DHDR began to try and find a foster home to take them both. After hundreds of shares and a lot of buzz on Facebook, there was still no foster or adopter. They began to deteriorate in the shelter environment - months there had just been too long. Another rescue was willing to take Seth. We couldn't stall any longer and together made the decision to separate them. Achilles came to DHDR, and Seth to Arizona Beagle Rescue.
Achilles, well past the average life expectancy for a Doberman, lived the good life in his foster home. He got to be silly with his foster sister. He was deeply loved. A professional evaluator noted that Achilles was possibly having trouble adjusting to life without his brother. Whenever his foster family spoke of this, they spelled out S-E-T-H, so that they would not confuse him.
In March, DHDR was over the moon when an incredible family adopted Achilles. He stood proud for his adoption photo, and easily relaxed in his new home.
We could have never imagined the email we got a week later: Achilles' adopter had read through his records, and had just applied to adopt S-E-T-H. At 14, he had not yet found his forever home and was still at the rescue. After the tears of joy cleared, DHDR and Arizona beagle Rescue worked together to expedite the process and bring the bonded pair back together.
Seth took the road trip North, with an ice cream stop along the way.
Nearly three months after they were separated on Christmas, Achilles and Seth were reunited in their forever home today, St. Patrick's Day. We are so grateful for the angels on earth that adopt seniors. This story fills our hearts with goodness, and we hope it does for you as well.
