CHULA VISTA, Calif. (KGTV) -- Mike and Molly make an odd couple...and a tough adoption scenarios at the Chula Vista Animal Care Facility

You see, Mike is a 100-pound Akita and Molly is a 7-pound Chihuahua/ Pug mix - and they're are inseparable. 

Caretakers at the facility tell 10News that the odd couple is a bonded pair.

Mike gets depressed and anxious without Molly, so the shelter is working to find a home that will take them both in. Unfortunately, their sizes are making it difficult. 

The pair was found wandering the streets in National City by a police officer nearly three months ago.

"We need to find the right family that's willing to take on a big dog and a little dog, make them part of the family," said Linda Septon with the animal care facility. 

The pair's adoption fee of $25 each includes them being spayed and neutered, vaccinations and microchipping. If you are interested in adding this couple to your family contact the Chula Vista Animal Care Facility at 619-691-5174 or their adoption counselor at

Another interesting aspect of the story is that this isn't the first bonded pair that's come through the doors of the Chula Vista Animal Care Facility!

In October they had a bonded cat dog pair who they named Romeo and Juliet. Fortunately, their version of the story had a happy ending.
