Holly Gilliam-Luechauer of De Soto said her Yorkshire terriers, Bentley and Caroline, aren’t too happy when someone they don’t know comes to their home.
“They are very protective of their space,” she said. “If anyone comes into our house, they bark.”
The dogs are not related. Bentley, 9, is tan colored, and Caroline, 5, has black in her coat, Gilliam-Luechauer said.
The dogs have different personalities, too, she said.
“Caroline is definitely a tomboy. She won’t let you dress her up. Bentley will. He’s a momma’s dog, for sure. Caroline, basically, favors my husband.”
They also have their own interests, Gilliam-Luechauer said.
“Bentley loves squeak toys,” she said. “Caroline is the ball chaser.”
Both dogs agree when it’s time for a treat, however.
“At 9 o’clock on the dot, they’re in your face wanting their treat before they go to bed,” Gilliam-Luechauer said.
She said her dogs are fond of one another.
“They pick and fight like a true brother and sister, but they love each other.”
