Refined to the Rescue: Camillo and Camilla need a new home

**UPDATE! Since posting the original story, Camillo and Camilla went on a trial adoption but the prospective parents decided that two kiddos was too much! Crossing our fingers for better luck moving forward for these two cuties.

Refined to the Rescue is back and with two sibling pups who are looking for a loving home to adopt the delightful duo!

Camillo and Camilla are year-and-a-half old Chihuahua mixes who have a special bond, and are hilarious together. The dogs were found nearly dead and full of mange in the depths of Costa Rica, and were rescued by Saving Great Animals. They're now up here living in Washington, but need to find their forever homes.

BUT make sure you are ready to take on both pups. They're siblings, and a package deal. As we learned from "Lil & Stitch"...

Damn straight. And no-one is leaving Camilla OR Camillo behind.

The pups are good with dogs, cats, kids and adults. They require a yard and are leash-trained. They like to be in your lap and are playful, obedient, affectionate, eager to please, intelligent and goofy!

They are now updated on all shots, spayed and neutered and chipped.

If you or anyone you know is interested in adopting these two balls of fun, email Perrin Kaplan at!

The Bark Benefit is going to be Saturday, June 9th at the Meydenbauer Center in Bellevue, WA.
