Onyx and Garnet: a bonded pair up for adoption

Onyx and Garnet are two adorable pups up for adoption at the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria.

These two have been through a lot, both arriving separately at the AWLA and very scared. Once the AWLA Behavior Team began working with Garnet she started to improve but Onyx was still very scared, according to AWLA spokesperson Erin Shackelford.

“Our Behavior Team decided to reintroduce them,” said Shackelford. “When Onyx saw Garnet, a switch flipped — he was so excited!”

Though they arrived separately, it was clear they were bonded once reintroduced. These two are clearly better together and ready to find a forever home.
