What do you get when you cross a pit bull with an orangutan?

Why buy from a breeder when there are plenty of homeless pups in shelters???

What do you get when you cross a pit bull with an orangutan?

Tater!

Tater and his lady friend Tot were found strays who were turned into BARCS. They are both under a year old, 32 - 35 lb pit bull mixes who are being treated for mange, and are very bonded to each other. They almost look exactly alike, except Tater has medium length... well, scruff.
Image

Both dogs have several bald patches, including the ape-like patches on their rumps that Tot is modeling here:

And both have the adorable habit of letting their tongues hang out, leading one volunteer (and PBF member) to ask me if they were sedated (they weren't).

Tater lets it all hang out.

Unfortunately, right now they're in a room that has been place on two week quarantine because another puppy was sick (which is why for the time being I only have blurry cell photos). Neither of these two seems to be showing any signs of sickness at all, and we're hoping to keep it that way!!! These dogs are so amazingly quiet and sweet and calm - they'd make amazing family members! No resource guarding from each other or humans, no issues with other dogs at all. We'd love for them to stay together!

I'm crazy about them too! If I had room, these two would be coming home with me ASAP, and I don't say that about most dogs. They're both SO sweet, and so special. As soon as they're allowed out of the quarantine room, I'll get some better pictures out in the sunlight with a real camera. They are just unbelievably cute, and except for the longer hair (and boy parts) look exactly alike - quite a little matched pair!

Oh my! How adorable!
I'm not much for PB mixes as a general rule, even though I know a few I LOVE.

These are just adorable, they have the cute little faces with that Chewbacca cuddliness lol

OMG, I love the Ewok. I'd have to take him home if he were in a shelter close to me.

They are super cute and I hope they get homes, I just can't consider another male right now with Jack so young. He's so drivey and determined and only two.

Oh, those two are waay too cute! I really did think they were sedated, lol. Everytime I walked in there they had their tongues sticking out with their heads on the floor! I've never seen a pit bull type dog with long hair before either. He's so goofy looking. roflmao Do you know how much longer they are going to be quarantined? My girl Epcott is back there too. :(

They're off the hook today - all clear, no one else had parvo (RIP Holden) and everyone got walks outside! They were SO happy to get outside!

I'm going to try to take them out for real photos outside tomorrow, if I remember my camera.
