Meet Sol and Lunar – a pair of loved-up pooches who won't be separated.
While most of the 28 pooches in care at Leicester Animal Rescue, near Billesdon, have a cage to themselves, these two cannot bear to be apart.
They are among four pairs of dogs at the centre who need to be rehomed together.
Sol and Lunar, both staffie cross dogs, have been at the centre for nearly a year, waiting for a home they can go to together.
Centre manager Fiona Price said: "They love being out together and they play together so well. They also sleep together in the same bed.
"Sol wears the trousers in the relationship but Lunar is faster and she always beats Sol to the tennis ball when they're playing together.
"They do seem to love each other."
Centre assistant Jade Walker said: "They would hate to be separated. They're so lovely together.
"I think Sol loves Lunar more than the other way round and he would be gutted if they were split up."
Sol and Lunar arrived after their owner moved into a house with cats and decided to give them up.
Other pairs at the centre include abandoned Jack, a seven-month-old shih tzu puppy, and his close friend Sheba, a female staffie cross twice his age.
Fiona said: "They're an odd couple but they're very attached. I think Jack thinks Sheba is his mum.
"They both lived together but one day their owner left them at a friend's house and never went back for them.
"I'm not sure they love each other, but Jack loves jumping on Sheba and she seems to tolerate it!
"It would be nice if we could rehome them together."
The other couples are collie crosses Joe and Tia, a male and female pair aged about five, who arrived at the rescue centre earlier this month, and brothers Stripe and Patch, a pair of terriers who arrived from a rescue centre in Wales.
Fiona said: "They're brothers so they've always been together and we want them to stay that way. They're fantastic together."
