PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -

They're an unlikely pair, but they're bonded besties, and they're looking for a new home, together.

Meet "Lenny and Squiggy."

The big guy and the little guy came into Maricopa County Animal Care and Control as strays on August 31 and have been inseparable ever since.  They hang out together in the kennel, play together and don't like to be apart.

Lenny is the German Shepherd and is believed to be about 8 years old.

Squiggy is the tiny Cairn Terrier and is thought to be about two years old.

The shelter hopes they can be adopted together, but a lot of people are having trouble with the size difference.

If you have room in your heart and home for this doggie duo, they are at the West shelter location and are FREE to a good home.
