Macon & Nika
Macon and Nika are an 11-year old bonded pair from Alabama. Macon is a red, brindle, frosty faced, smooth coat gentleman and Nika is a longhaired, petite, English Cream little lady. Both have received full dental work and have clean bills of health. Both had several teeth removed and require their hard kibble to be soaked in water until soft or have canned food, which they both really like!
Despite their senior status, these two don’t let their age get in the way. They are equally outgoing and love to run around with their foster friends, and would be open to living in a home with other dogs. The pair is as snuggly as they are energetic though! Nika and Macon would love to curl up in your lap or burrow alongside you in bed, but are also happy to snuggle up in some blankets together. Macon loves to have his ears scratched and Nika is quick to roll over for some belly rubs.
