AS OF 1/26/15 Hi! My name is Guppy. My siblings and I were born with a rare disease called: Neospora Caninum .This is not contagious. This is caused by a disease that was contracted by my mom while the puppies were in utero. This causes the puppies to be born without joints, including knee caps or ankles. There is no known cure to remove this disease from their bodies. We believe that the only way to prevent it, is not to breed. Dogs with this disease often lead normal lives with great partnership between the adoptive family and their vet. The dogs down the line, may need to have aids to help with walking. Please talk to your vet and do some research to make sure you can make the commitment before wanting to take me home. We may be cute, BUT there is lots you need to know.If you think you would be interested please fill out our application and we can start the process.  Please email us with any questions you have regarding this dog that is not covered in this bio.
Some of our dogs come with papers from the original owners. We cannot guarantee the papers we receive have not been altered in some way. We rely on the HONESTY of the people we rescue our dogs from.

About LUV4K9S

About Our Rescue Group...

Luv4K9s is a group of people who have come together while working in the shelter and rescue areas. We have a combined experience of over 40 years in the animal world.

We started by saving dogs from puppy mills and puppy mill auctions, taking the ones that were unwanted, to give them a chance at a loving home which they never had. We also take in homeless dogs or dogs that are deemed not adoptable by shelters to give them a safe haven where they will receive medical care, nutrition and love until an approved home is found.

They are rescued from situations ranging from the lack of care and supervision to starvation and abuse.

Luv4K9s wants to reduce the number of unwanted pets by altering all dogs in our rehoming program, to educate the public about the importance of altering pets, and explain that owning a pet is a LIFELONG commitment.

Luv4K9s of Dayton, Ohio is run entirely by volunteers. We receive no government support and operate with funds generated by adoption fees, fundraising and generous donations from concerned animal lovers.

We would like to thank all of the families that have adopted our dogs and given them great homes. We would not be able to rescue the dogs if it weren't for people like you that are willing to give these dogs a chance and a home. It may seem like a small step to take but it means the entire world to these abandoned dogs!
