R.O.A.R. Squad: Amanda and her dogs, Moe and Mamie

For some reason this reminds me of the Simpsons. Only way cuter.

How cute is that photo, people? Adorable! A huge welcome to our latest R.O.A.R. Squad member, Amanda from Massachusetts!

Check out how Moe and Mamie got their names after the jump.

Thank you so much for joining the R.O.A.R. Squad!

Rockin’ Rescue Owner: Amanda Hellen

Marvellous Pups: Moe and Mamie (both chihuahua/beagle mixes)

About Amanda: I live outside of Boston and am 26 years old. I had a beautiful long haired chihuahua named Lucy last year, she was my first dog… and she passed sadly during her surgery to be spayed.  It devastated me so I decided to get a new friend and in the process, decided to get 2 new friends.  So I adopted a brother and a sister from Peace and Paws in New Hampshire.

Something Missing: After I lost Lulu and waited a few months to grieve but felt as though something was missing and even though I was afraid, I knew I needed another dog in my life.  So I went on Petfinder because I knew I wanted a rescue and I found Moe… and then I found his sister Mamie and I was in love with both of them.

Do these guys look like trouble, or what?

Eenie, Meanie…: The pups were part of a litter of 4.. Eenie, Meanie, Minie and Moe.  I got Moe and Meanie but didn’t like the name Meanie… so I renamed her Mamie after my grandmother who passed last year.  She’s a special little lady. 

Where: Massachusetts
