found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am up to date with shots.
If not adopted, this pup will be at PetCo West at 6137 MidRiver Mall Drive, St. Charles/ St. Peters this weekend from 12:00 to 4:00. To claim this pup, reserve her or him with an application. http://www.takeafriendhome.org/adopt.html . An application doesn't obligate you to adopt but it is the only way to assure that the pup of your choice will be available. It is an agreement that you will come to meet your "reserved" pup or call us to let us know if there is a change of plans.
Darling pups with semi-short coats – Mom is a beautiful Brittany/ Cocker mix – her only Cocker trait is her gorgeous black coat. She weighs 27 pounds. Dad was a beagle and it shows. The pups are likely to be closer to his size. To be safe, I am guessing these kids will be between 20 – 25 pounds when fully grown. Round and sweet, they are just the right age to go home. If you think one of these babies is the pup for you, send in that application (see above) to reserve him.
Housetrained? These kids are great age and size to master the art of going out. Expecting a 9 week old p to be housetrained is like expecting a 9 month old baby to be pottie trained. Just remember, your “baby” can only be as will be as housetrained as you are. For your dog to be successful: when your pup is the right age and size, use a crate, go out with your dog, praise “right action”, and expect more of yourself than you do of your dog. Housetraining tips are in your adoption packet.
Pups this age and size have not been spay/neutered… too small and too young. We alter all of our pups when they are 12 weeks old and/or over 5 pounds. With our contract, you agree to alter your pup before he or she is 6 months old. We can provide information on low cost spay neuter programs in the St. Louis area. If you decide not to use those options, we will bring your pup back to our vet and have that procedure done for you for $25. Our pups have had all the vaccines possible to date. Puppies need vaccines every two weeks until they are 16 weeks old. At that time, they are old enough for their rabies vaccines.
Adoption Fees and Payment Plans: We take credit cards and checks. Payments can be arranged with a credit card. As with all of our adoptions, we know it is hard to get married on a blind date... even to a wonderful pup. We will take our dog back give a full refund in the first week. After 7 days, we will take your puppy back and you can consider your adoption fee a tax deductible donation to a very appreciative organization. To hold a pup longer that the earliest possible delivery date, we ask for a $50 non-refundable deposit.
