Manta has been in a foster home for a while while she recovered from the birth of her babies. Manta was very ill with mastitis & other health issues so she had to go away from her tiny babies. She was getting sicker from the stress of not being able to care for them so it was best to leave the puppies to their Foster Mom. Manta has come a very long way and now she is a very healthy, happy girl. She gets along very well with her four foster dog friends. She's completely house trained and never touches a thing that isn't hers. Manta had a very hard life and now she knows that she is secure and loved. Manta is ready for a home of her own (without kitties) so if Manta touches your heart, please apply for her!
** PLEASE NOTE **
You must live within 250 miles of Lake Placid, NY 12946 and travel to us to meet your new dog or puppy; we do not adopt outside of the 250 mile radius. You must be at least 23 years old to adopt. You have to fill out an adoption application before we can discuss any of our dogs or puppies with you so we know as much about you as possible. Almost all of our dogs and puppies have pre-approved adopters when they arrive so apply as soon as possible. The application is at http://www.joshuafundrescue.org/adoptionapplication
Since we are a Rescue located many states away from where the dog originates, we know nothing more about the dog than is stated in the above description. We arrange to have every dog vaccinated, spayed/neutered, treated for any condition they may have and IF they have heart worm, it is treated at the Vet near the shelter of origin. Our dogs and puppies are either in foster care or at a boarding boarding facility for their mandatory 21 day quarantine period; longer if they are receiving heart worm treatment. The dogs are professionally transported to Lake Placid, NY
