GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Humane Society of West Michigan invites you to meet a very dynamic duo, Angel and Antonio! These adorable purebred Dobermans are brother and sister. The 1-year-old pair were part of a large-scale rescue, and they are busy figuring out the joys of getting to be dogs.

Both of these dogs have gorgeous velvety coats, big brown eyes, and expressive ears! They know how to sit, shake, love treats, love people, and LOVE each other.

Their previous foster parents said Antonio is a great, easy-going dog until he finds a ball--then all bets are off! He's still getting used to walking on a leash, but he will nicely walk by your side.

Angel isn't ALWAYS an angel, (who is?) but she's very sweet and keeps herself busy trying to keep your full attention! She loves toys--and though stuffed animals never last long--Kongs and balls are great. She's also understandably very curious about the world around her and can be a bit of an escape artist trying to experience new things, so it's good to keep a close eye on her.

These precious pups are ready to get out of the shelter and start their new life together--could it be with you? To learn more about both of these big babies, click here.
