FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – Two dogs, designed for friendship, now have a forever home. After being brought to Fort Wayne Animal Care and Control, Hercules and Muellas have been adopted by a family from Antwerp, Ohio.
The pair were dropped off at the shelter on Feb. 27, 2015 because the owner couldn’t afford to care for them. Animal Care and Control officials said they tried to split up Herclues, a Pit-Bull-Lab mix, and Muellas, a Rat-Terrier mix. They found that the eight-year-old dogs were better together.
A donor paid for the adoption fee of the two animals, which is about $25 per animal. A shelter veterinarian said Muellas’ blindness is something that he can live with for the rest of his life.
