BAILEY the Rottweiler and Charlie the beagle are two best friends who can't stand to be apart.

The two pups have spent the last four years together but face an uncertain future, now their owners have to move home.

South Burnett's Silver Lining Pet Rescue co-manager Denise Bettany said the two dogs were inseparable and were looking for someone to adopt the pair together.

"Bailey the Rottweiler is an anxious girl and doesn't cope with Charlie and Charlie has never known a life without Bailey," Mrs Bettany said. "We are desperately trying to keep them together because they love each other and want to be together."

Bailey suffered from anxiety as a young puppy and became seriously distressed when left alone, leading to her owners to purchase Charlie to calm her down.

Due to moving house, Bailey and Charlie can no longer live with their original owners and the shelter is hoping someone will foster or adopt the dogs.

"They've never been separated - they go to doggie daycare together, they clean each other and they do everything together," Mrs Bettany said.

"They're dog and people friendly and they're quite social little things."

The dogs would suit an active family who don't mind having pets indoors.

"They will be fine as long as somebody is walking them, they are in a secured fence and they can be part of a family who is going to offer them that love and security for the rest of their days," Mrs Bettany said.

"These two are special, they need to stay together - they have the bond and that love that needs to keep them together."
