Alexandria, VA

Nine-year-old Chaquira and her eight-year-old daughter Princesa are inseparable, and the pair are looking for a new home via the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria.

AWLA took in Chaquira and Princesa with 12 other dogs from the Florida-based True and Faithful Pet Rescue Mission.

“Senior dogs like Princesa and Chaquira have spent their whole lives giving love to others,” said AWLA Executive Director Stella Hanly. “They deserve just as much love in their older years.”

Princesa is reportedly the more outgoing of the two dogs, although treats and ear scratches have proven to quickly bring Chaquira around.

“They are sweet, curious girls who have taken in stride the many changes they’ve experienced over the last month,” AWLA spokesperson Gina Hardter said. “We know that the person or people lucky enough to adopt them will receive double the love and gratitude from their new canine family members.”

Incidentally, their adoption fees have been pre-paid this month by Priority Automotive as part of the Home for the Pawlidays event, where adoption fees are waived for pets older than six months.
