Dogs Found in Store Bathroom

Kevin Williams | March 22nd, 2019

The manager of a Petco store in Allen Park, Michigan had an odd feeling about a couple who was wandering around the store one Saturday night. They had two large dogs with them, neither of which was wearing a collar. In fact, the pair of dogs were just tethered together by a leash tied in a slipknot. That was a big red flag for the manager, who approached the couple about the dogs not having collars. The couple claimed they forgot the collars at home, and were just stopping in the store to get dog food. That was the last they saw of the couple and not long after, the staff began to hear cries coming from the bathroom. They walked back and saw the two older dogs locked in bathroom stall together. The store manager called a local rescue group, but they didn’t have any room for the dogs.

The manager posted about the dogs on Facebook, and a woman named Carol Lair from POET Animal Rescue stepped in to help. Carol made the trip to Petco to get the dogs and they were terrified when she met them. They were obviously confused and traumatized by all they had been through—and more than anything they just wanted to be together. They loved being in the car and have names now: Marigold and Daffodil. They are in a foster home now, and though they are well-fed dogs, they seem to have had a tough life. Both dogs appear to have been bred many times in their life. Though they have had a rough start to their lives and they are older, they still have a lot of love to give.

It has been hard to find them a home because they must stay together, they are older dogs, and they are very frightened around new people. Meeting a new person makes them both very scared and nervous, which can scare off many potential adopters. They will be spayed soon and will be up for adoption after they recover!
