During February, everyone’s thoughts turn to love and these two dogs, Hercules and Vesty, can teach us a lesson or two. These five-year-old “brothers” are bonded as much as any real siblings could be. They rely on each other to be happy and they do everything together. Including being sweet and loving favorites of our staff and volunteers.
If they can’t be walked at the same time, one will wait patiently at the door for the other to return. Brother Vesty tends to get a bit anxious when brother Hercules isn’t there. Although when they are together, Vesty is not above stealing the limelight and all the attention from Hercules (doesn’t this sound like “sibling rivalry”). He especially likes to roll over on his back in the middle of a room of people! When he does this, no one can resist giving him a good belly rub.
A friend is what the heart needs all the time.

Even though they each have their own bed, they cuddle up together in one bed all the time—day or night. Sometimes, it’s a tight fit! There are some days, though, when one will try to steal the other’s bed and a playful tug-of-war begins. Both love to play with toys but, given the chance, Hercules will take them and hoard them all.
This Valentine’s Day, Hercules and Vesty are seeking a loving family with a large, fenced-in yard and older children to play with. They’re not asking for much—mostly they just want to be together!
