WINCHESTER – Sam and Harmony, a bonded pair of long-haired dachshunds, are waiting for the right family at the Frederick County Esther Boyd Animal Shelter.

Judy Meyers, animal caretaker at the shelter, said Sam is a black and red 4-year-old male and Harmony is a red 9-year-old female. They were surrendered to the shelter together on May 20.

Meyers added that she would like to keep the two together, since they grew up together and have become very close.

“They are so soft,” she said. “They are cute little doggies.”

Both dogs are very friendly and do not shy away from tummy rubs and jumping onto someone nearby for some affection.

Kisses should be expected from these two bubbly dogs. Even though they are adult dogs, they love to play and are very active.

Sam and Harmony are great with other dogs, cats and children so they would make a great addition to any family, Meyers said.

Harmony can only eat wet food as she has lost some of her teeth.

Harmony is spayed, but Sam has not been neutered.

The adoption fee for Harmony is $30. Sam’s adoption fee of $100 includes a neutering deposit.
