Boris & Natasha
Positives: Boris is a LOVER. He gets jealous when you pet any other dog and must have all of your love and attention. When he cuddles, the closer to your face and heart the better. He can be a bit rambunctious but for the most part he has grown out of the crazy pug energy. When giving kisses he seems to focus on your lips and face which is ill advised because he’s still dealing with coprophagia. He is at a very healthy weight, can keep up on long walks for the most part and he loves his fruits and veggies. He will try just about anything once.
Quirks: Boris is a marker; we keep a belly band on him overnight and when he’s left unattended roaming around the house. We haven’t been able to break him of that habit. He also eats his and his sisters’ poop. We’ve tried just about everything to get him to stop aside from a coprophagia mask or “bee mask” but nothing has stopped him.
Medical: Boris has had 2 idiopathic seizures. Both times he was seen by a neurologist and they determined he had no underlying medical conditions.
Positives: Natasha is good cuddle buddy when she wants to be. She loves attention but isn’t as needy as Boris. She is definitely the more rambunctious of the two and can be bit of a bully towards Boris. Natasha is also a water baby! If you’re running a bath or taking a shower, don’t be surprised if she joins you. She’s a bit of a picky eater and will go on food strikes occasionally but will eat when she’s hungry. Natasha is also at a healthy weight and for the most part can keep up on a good walk. Also, don’t be surprised if you call her name and can’t find her; she loves to sleep in closets and small spaces so check there before you being to worry.
Quirks: Natasha is a nibbler when she gets excited. She likes to bite your hand to say hello but she’s gentle about it. She also has an affinity for toes and feet, she’ll lick you clean if you give
Medical: Natasha is a special case. She was born with bilateral hip luxation - has neither hip socket- so essentially her femurs are ‘free floating’. Her legs do tend to give out, she can’t stand up on her hind legs like most dogs can, and she struggles to jump up sometimes. However, she surprisingly gets around really well; she hops around like a bunny rabbit and it’s really cute. Eventually she will require a wheelchair but I don’t see that stopping her one bit.
