Ruff and Ready are an adorable pair of pups who can be adopted either together or separately. Both are described as extremely sweet but perhaps a little shy until they get to you.

The folks at HOPE Safehouse are guessing they’re shepherd mixes – possibly and Australian shepherd mix – and say the pups are about 7 months old and weigh in around 40 pounds.

Ruff and Ready are available for adoption through HOPE Safehouse. If you think your family could be the furever one for either dog or even both, call HOPE Safehouse at (262) 634-4571, email them at or visit
