Some things are just better together, like peanut butter and jelly, and Macho and Chacho.
The bonded 12-year-old Chihuahuas have been patiently waiting at an animal shelter in Los Angeles for a loving home for over 400 days. The senior pups seek a lap or two to rest on and a home to enjoy their golden years.
TikToker @ericaroslyn who works at Wags & Walks rescue posted a video showing the sweet boys watching from their kennel as the younger dogs get adopted.
In the heartbreaking clip, the dogs wag their tails with excitement as people approach but then watch as they pass by.
They are small in size, weighing just 10 pounds each, but have larger-than-life personalities. Macho and Chacho promise to love and entertain you daily.The rescue shared the brothers are “silly” but still enjoy naps. They are healthy, neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and ready to find their people.Senior dogs are the best and teach us to slow down and enjoy the little things in life. They are often overlooked for puppies and younger dogs, but people are missing out on amazing companions that are lower energy, house-trained, and full of love.
Viewers took to the comments to encourage people to adopt these boys and give senior dogs a chance. One person wrote, “They are so adorable! Not sure how these perfect pups don’t have their fur-ever home yet. Senior pups are the best!”
Another added, “I adopted 2 senior bonded doggies. ???? Best decision ever. Would totally do it again!”

Animal shelters are overcapacity and desperately searching for fosters and adopters. Consider opening your heart and home to a homeless dog or cat.

I am broadly interested in how human activities influence the ability of wildlife to persist in the modified environments that we create.
Specifically, my research investigates how the configuration and composition of landscapes influence the movement and population dynamics of forest birds. Both natural and human-derived fragmenting of habitat can influence where birds settle, how they access the resources they need to survive and reproduce, and these factors in turn affect population demographics. Most recently, I have been studying the ability of individuals to move through and utilize forested areas which have been modified through timber harvest as they seek out resources for the breeding and postfledging phases. As well I am working in collaboration with Parks Canada scientists to examine in the influence of high density moose populations on forest bird communities in Gros Morne National Park. Many of my projects are conducted in collaboration or consultation with representatives of industry and government agencies, seeking to improve the management and sustainability of natural resource extraction.
