Sunny & Cher touched the hearts of San Diegans, now they’re looking for a good home

Now safe, 'Sunny and Cher' doggies are popular after getting ears cut off

Sunny and Cher have been reunited and are currently living together at the home of a foster caretaker. Applications continue to pour in from dog lovers hoping to adopt the puppies that were found separately with their ears sliced off.

More than 100 people have offered to take in the black Labradors, which San Diego County Department of Animal Services staff believe are from the same litter. Animal Services Lt. Dan DeSousa said one recent application came from a school teacher who had all of her students sign the form.

The puppies were reunited Tuesday at the county Animal Shelter on Gaines Street.

Sunny was found on November 19th in a trash bin in Mission Valley, while the female pup was picked up by a veterinary assistant in Tijuana earlier this month, they're estimated to be about 2-months old. County animal officials think someone in Mexico sliced off their ears either to prepare them for dog fighting or to make their appearance more like that of a pit bull. The wounds are healed, and the puppies appear healthy and playful.

Applications for adoption are being accepted through Saturday, December 18th. The applications are available online at or may be picked up at any one of county's three shelters.
