Today's Animal in Need

This message was on my FB page today and I wanted to post it here, too.   Their names are Blaze and Chiquita.
I don't like to start my days with posts like this...however, these bonded dogs were dumped at a texas shelter by their family. They are terrified in the shelter--they sit in the corner and shake...they have NO idea wtf is going on... and they need rescue...they need someone to step up for them, and give them what their own family did not--a forever home. THEY ARE IN A SHELTER IN AUSTIN, TEXAS...please share them...please ask your friends to share them out... even if you can't adopt them, you can help save them. thank you..
Austin Texas friends - These bubs need your help! please share!

These two are owner surrenders. They are both so scared that they just sit there and shake. You can see the big guy drooling in the picture. I know they are both marked with "Use Caution" but they are just terrified! I spent some time with them today outside of the kennel and the big guy eventually started whimpering. Is there anyone out there that can help this pair? They need to stay together!  Austin Animal Center 7201 Levander Loop Austin, TX 78702 — at Austin Animal Center.
