found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already spayed, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.
Although we make the best guess on the breed and size of our dogs, because they come from shelters or are strays, we can never be completely certain of the genetic makeup of the dog. Breed and weight at maturity are only guesses. All we can tell you for sure is that they are 100% RESCUED! If an animal is still posted for adoption, he/she is still available. If you see this this post, this puppy is available for adoption so there is no need to email asking about availability.
Meet Cinnamon she was born on 6-3-2016, and will be 8 weeks on Friday the 29th. Cinnamon weighed 5.74 pounds on July 27th. Cinnamon like her siblings is super sweet, very friendly, great with other dogs, and the older children in the home. She loves playing and snuggling. We don't know about kitties as the foster doesn't have any, but given the age, we feel she would be fine with proper intros and a dog friendly cat.
Cinnamon is being fostered with her siblings Rosie, Mace, Nutmeg and Poly. We have mom and she is in the same home with the puppies. Mom is super sweet and friendly, and really a mutt. If we must name a breed, possible Terrier/sheltie mix, but that's just a guess. Dad we don't know who he was, but are guessing he had some lab since the puppies look like they have lab in them. Given the pups current weights we feel they will be medium size dogs as adults between 25-35 pounds. We we are guessing the breed as Lab/Terrier mixes. Mom is 20-25 pounds.
The pups have had a difficult start. Mom arrived with kennel cough, and when the babies were born she passed it on them, which quickly turned into pneumonia when they were tiny. They've had xrays and were treated with meds several times. They are all better now, and are chubby, friendly, happy little puppies thanks to the loving care of their foster mom and our wonderful vets.
They had their vet check on the July, 27th, with their puppy vaccination. They've already had several rounds of deworming. Were given Bravecto yesterday for the prevention of external parasites. Mace, Nutmeg, Cinnamon, and Rosie all have very low grade 1 heart murmurs. It's very low and the vet feels they will grow out of it as they get older, but we can't make any guarantees. For more information about heart murmurs, we recommend you contact your vet. Cinnamon, like her sister Rosie, has a very short stub tail. We feel they would be best with children 5 and over.
Puppies need a family who have time to continue with house training and socialization. If you work, you must have other arrangements for someone to care for your puppy while your away. it's not fair to keep a young puppy in a crate all night then all day again while your working.
At night when dogs sleep, their body systems and elimination slow down. This is why they can go all night without eliminating once they’re old enough to have sufficient bladder and bowel control. But during the day, neither puppies nor adult dogs should be crated for more than four or five hours at a time. When crating a puppy for more than two hours, it’s best to provide water by attaching a water bottle dispenser to the crate. (Using a bowl can create a mess.) Follow these daytime duration guidelines to avoid compromising your dog’s well-being or causing behavior problems:
Age Maximum time in crate
8-10 weeks 1-2 hours
11-14 weeks 1-3 hours
15-16 weeks 3-4 hours
17+ weeks 4-5 hours
Rosie is being fostered in a Plainfield, IL home, where is where you and your family would go to meet her. All family members, including 4-legged, must be present at the meet and greet to adopt. In order to schedule a meet and greet, first a submitted and approved adoption application must be submitted. The adoption application is on-line and can be found at http://angelsonwheels.org/canine-adoption-application/
Submitting an application does not commit you to any animal, but is required prior to making arrangements for a meet and greet as all of our animals are cared for in homes. We can't schedule meet and greets until the application is submitted and approved. We don't have a building so there are no viewing hours. All of our animals are cared for in foster homes by wonderful families who volunteer their time to save these precious souls. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
The adoption fee of $350.00 includes:
Spaying/Neutering when old enough which is 5-6 months, you will receive a coupon with our vets
Up-to-date on routine vaccination for distemper-adenovirus-parainfluenze-parvo, Dewormed with panacur,
Treated with Bravacto for the prevention of fleas.
Monthly Heartworm Preventative While in our care
Treatment of the pneumonia and xrays
Free vet exam with one of our participating vets
The pups are too young to be fixed, so you will receive a spay/neuter coupon to one of our participating vets to have that procedure done when they are old enough. The rescue pays for the spay/neuter. There is fully refundable $100.00 spay/neuter deposit. We hold the check, and do not cash it. Once the pup is fixed, you email us and we will void your check. The foster will explain that in more detail at the meet and greet. Because the pups are not fixed, you must live within an hour of one of our vets listed below.
You will also receive a free health exam visit to either Crest Hill Cat and Dog Clinic, Yorkville Animal Hospital, Midwest Animal Hospital in Orland Park, Woodridge Animal Hospital, Oswego Animal Hospital, Springbrook Animal Hospital, or Naperville Animal Hospital.
Thank you for looking at our rescued animals!
