“Inseparable” rescue dogs looking for a forever home together
Two rescue dogs who have been described as “inseparable” now seek their forever home together.
TJ and Coral were brought separately to Old Windsor in Battersea Dogs and Cats Home earlier this year, and have since developed a strong bond that the animal welfare charity does not want to sever.
Greyhound Coral, seven, and Saluki TJ, nine, share the love of laps in the refuge’s garden and long afternoon naps together.

They spent 144 and 104 days in the shelter respectively and will remain in his care until they find the right home together, Team Dogs reports.
Center manager Kaye Mughal, who cheered on the couple, said: “In Battersea we see a lot of dogs in our care befriending each other on play dates, but rarely, if ever, have we seen such a strong bond develop between two of our residents.
“It has been so special to watch the two dogs gain confidence in their company, especially TJ who has really come out of his shell since Coral came into his life.
“They are an incredibly sweet couple and deserve to live happily ever after, together, in a loving home.
“Their different characters complement each other perfectly and we have no doubts that both will make fantastic additions to the right house.”
Coral arrived at the shelter when her elderly owner could no longer care for her, while TJ was turned over to the association following a change in her family’s circumstances.
As a very nervous dog, TJ was sent to live in Coral’s foster home so that she could act as her emotional support dog.
The couple are ideally looking for a potential owner who has taken care of a nervous dog before and who will appreciate TJ’s sensitive side, but also know what to expect from owning dogs on sight.
Mrs Mughal said: “Accepting a new pet is a big responsibility, so adding two to your family at the same time is a huge commitment and naturally not for everyone, but we are convinced that good new owners are over there.
“Until then, I’m more than happy that the lovebirds continue to stay with me – seeing their love blossom has been a truly wonderful thing to see. “
