Deep Dish and Jambalaya are a pair of senior dogs in San Francisco that are looking for a new forever home.
The two came to Muttville Senior Dog Rescue, located in San Francisco, from Sonoma County Animal Services after their original guardian became ill and could no longer take care of them.
“Together, they are so friendly and loving. They get along great with other dogs and kids,” Muttville told Fox News Digital.

The pups are “strongly bonded,” and the shelter does not want to separate them.
Deep Dish, 9, a male Chihuahua mix, is “a very good boy who does well with other dogs.”
Jambalaya, 10, is a female Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen. Although visually impaired, she “loves when you are near her,” Muttville says.
Both dogs, however, are on weight-loss journeys, according to the shelter.
Deep Dish is 32 pounds, while Jambalaya tips the scales at 37 pounds.
“Deep Dish is a Chihuahua potato extraordinaire,” Muttville said. “He’s a happy little guy who wags his tail a lot and is easy to handle — but is not so easy to pick up.”

Deep Dish helps guide his sister around.
Jambalaya, meanwhile, is “a total sweetheart,” her foster mother told the shelter.
She “came to us looking pretty scrappy and scruffy, but she cleaned up real nice!”
