Miranda & Sandy

Sandy and Miranda are in need of a foster-to-adopt forever home where they can live comfortably for their golden years!

These two girls came to the shelter over a month ago after their owner could no longer care for them. Upon their arrival, it was clear that Miranda (13 y/o Labrador) and Sandy (11 y/o Beagle) needed some extra care. Both of them were severely overweight, making everyday activities difficult and putting undue stress on their aging bodies.

Sandy and Miranda were in such terrible condition that it was difficult for them to even stand up. To make matters worse, their unhealthy lifestyle had resulted in both dogs experiencing major health issues, including the discovery of multiple masses. Unfortunately, the surgeries and biopsies that are required to determine the seriousness of these concerns are impossible to perform until the girls lose more weight.

The good news is that after adjustments to their diets and activity schedule, Sandy and Miranda have made significant progress. It's clear that the girls are feeling better and better as they shed the extra pounds! Though their battle is far from over, Sandy and Miranda are making huge improvements to their health and well-being!

These beauties need a home that's ready to support their journey to better health and smother them with love (not treats!) for the remainder of their days!

Can you give Sandy and Miranda the healthy, happy home they need? Come meet them Cocheco Valley Humane Society at 262 County Farm Road in Dover, NH! For more information on adopting a pet, visit
