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.
Betsy an 8-9 week old German Shepherd Catahoula x or possibly a Dutch Shepherd X who we expect will weigh about 45-55# when she is full grown. Since we estimate her adult weight based on her DOB and we are not positive about that, her adopter should be prepared to love her if she is larger or smaller than anticipated. Betsy and her two sisters, Betsy and Betsy, were surrendered to the Standing Rock Indian Reservation animal control because the family was not able to keep the entire letter. Animal control turned them over to PUP to find permanent, loving homes for them. They arrived clean, well fed, and in good condition. Their coats are soft and healthy. They are learning to walk on a leash and are just beginning to learn about house breaking. They are getting lots of socializing with children and adults in their foster home.
The first 4 months are when puppy learns the social skills needed to be a skilled dog in dealing with other dogs and a good citizen in the human world. Her adopter should be committed to getting puppy into lots of new and different human social situations, hearing vacuums, trucks, and rattling garbage cans, meeting people who are clapping, laughing, with hats, tools, bikes and skate boards. AND puppy needs many opportunities to meet and greet dogs of all shapes, sizes and dispositions. Just sharing a home with another dog is not as much doggie socializing as puppy needs. If good canine social skills are not learned and maintained during these early months, it will be very difficult to ever master them. Puppy play dates, trips to the pet store, puppy socialization classes and later, obedience classes and trips to the off leash park are ideal learning opportunities. If all this doggie time and involvement seems like a good idea, you are up for a puppy! As always, a tired dog is a good dog.
Betsy can go to her permanent home after her vet check on July 12. She has been wormed and had her first vaccinations. She will need two more routine vaccinations and rabies at the owner’s expense. Her adoption fee of $300 includes the cost of her spay if it is done by the PUP vet. PUP does place dogs outside the metro area but a firm plan must be in place for her spay. We do not ship.
