CRUSA has two 2-1/2-year-old-Cairns, brothers who have lived together their whole lives. They are owner surrenders from a very nice man in Michigan.
Due to a family situation and given his work schedule, he needed to find a new home for these guys. He surrendered Munchkin & Hyde to CRUSA, but was fostering them for us when his work schedule changed. He no longer will be able to be their foster. They are located in Northville, Michigan, in the Detroit west metro area.
We are trying to find a foster home who would be able to take both dogs so we can keep them together. If you know of anyone who could potentially be a foster home for Munchkin & Hyde, or have any thoughts or suggestions, please email Alex Ledbetter HERE or Toni Bonney HERE. We will likely need to move these two in the next week or so.

Munchkin & Hyde's surrendering owner has continued to foster them, along with considerable help from his neighbor who rescues black labs. M.'s job as a truck driver has in recent weeks made it very difficult for him to provide these boys with the attention that he believes they deserve (which is what prompted him to seek help from CRUSA in the first place).
Most recently, the company with which he is employed has informed him that he may need to be relocated in as little as a week or two, so work has continued to present challenges in terms of M.'s providing care & attention to the boys, even with his neighbor's help. He called me the day before yesterday to let me know that he really needs help to get them moved along to a more appropriate placement sooner rather than later.
While CRUSA Midwest's Intakes, Foster, and Placement team has been working to find a foster situation well-suited to these young male litter mates, it has proved challenging because these boys ideally need to go to a home with NO other dogs, if at all possible, and with NO cats. Separating them is not presently being considered as a viable option based on the surrendering owner's concerns about Hyde's ability to handle a potential separation from his brother.

They are nice healthy dogs
and someone who has some time
to spend with them will be
getting some cool dogs.
