MOUNT LAUREL, N.J. (WPVI) --When One Love Animal Rescue found brothers Smokey and Bandit, they were in rough shape.
Morgan Barnett adopted Smokey and Bandit in March 2016.
"They were found on the side of the road, and they had demodex. They were really emaciated," said Morgan.
Morgan took the dogs in, and became what is known as a failed foster mom.
"I fell in love with their crazy goofiness. and I ended up adopting them. I was like no, I don't want to be a foster failure, but I did. I failed pretty hard," said Morgan.
The two pups have grown into gentle giants, and they are still growing.
"They're only 9-months-old." said Morgan.
And they are the best of friends.
"They get along great. They don't like to be away from each other. They're always checking on each other," said Morgan.
One Love Animal Rescue is a foster based rescue. Still looking for a home is the Biddenford Family.
Sherri Smith is chairman of One Love Animal Rescue.
She said, "Mrs. Biddenford is the mother, and Martha is the daughter, and Buddy is the son."
Mrs. Biddenford is recovering from a skin condition and is missing an eye, but she doesn't let that slow her down.
Sherri says, "She would be good in almost any home."
Martha is the shy one, Buddy, the social butterfly.
"He just likes to play and snuggle. He's really a great dog," said Sherri.
Winston came to the rescue with bad chemical burns.
"He just loves to snuggle and loves treats. He would be a great family dog," said Sherri.
Petey is 9-months-old and would be perfect in any home.
"He's a very active and playful young kitten," said Sherri.
And finally, there is Abby, seventy-five pounds of pure gentleness. She loves to snuggle and play, and has great house manners.
She would prefer to be the only pet in your house, and get all the love.
