Bernadette & Shelby

These sisters are estimated to be born some time in March of 2022. Despite their young lives, they've had a bit of a rough start.

Their original owner got bitten several times and despite her best efforts to socialize them, they continued to fear her and avoid her at all costs. Denise especially was so fearful she would let out a blood-curdl...
