Two bonded pit bulls They are clearly needed to be together and that exactly what happened
After their dog of nine years passed away, adopting another dog — let alone two — was the last thing on the Birster family’s mind.
But that quickly changed once they saw a photo of Bonnie and Clyde, two bonded pit bulls being housed at ACCT Philly — and learned that the bonded pair could soon be separated.
Theywere a bonded pair of dogs surrendered by their owner in March 2014. The day after they were surrendered to the shelter, our own dog of nine years passed away.
It was the worst time of my life and my husband and I were destroyed,” Kathryn Birstersaid
“He was not just our dog, he was our child. We were absolutely not looking to adopt again any time soon.”
A week later, Birster saw the photo of Bonnie (mostly white with spots) and Clyde (brown and white) for the first time on Facebook.
The Facebook post noted that the dogs were in paired housing and waiting to be adopted. There was a lot of interest in fostering or adopting Clyde but not a lot of interest in Bonnie.

Bonded pairs are often difficult to adopt out, Most people come into the adoption process planning to adopt one pet.

And spending some time with them.
Birster and her husband knew they couldn’t leave them behind, and completed the adoption process, bringing them home .
