LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

After five loving years with their best friend, Gus and Girdy are hoping their second stay at the Kurth Memorial Animal Shelter is their last.

Gus, a 7 year-old hound mix, and Girdy, a 7 year-old Dachsund mix, have been "brother" and "sister" for the last five years. They are now looking for a new place to call home.

"They have a really interesting story," Kurth Shelter Director Aaron Ramsey said. "They were adopted from the shelter five years ago, both at the shelter at the same time. Unfortunately due to some unfortunate circumstances, the adopter had to release the animals back to us."

Now back where their adventure together started, the pair is looking for a home where they can bring joy to their second forever family.

"They're mature dogs," Ramsey said. "They are past that puppy stage. They're in the prime of their life here. They have a lot of good years left."

With a special bond, the shelter is asking for the two to go home together, and that family will only have to pay for the price of one.

"Dogs, just like people, bond and these two have basically known each other their whole life," Ramsey said. "We just want to send them off together."

The price for both of the dogs is $60. The price for two is normally $120. The shelter is located on Hill Street in Lufkin and is opened Monday through Saturday.
