Jennifer is a distemper survivor and has been making a remarkable recovery. It really is a miracle that she is alive at all. That horrible distemper virus has left her with some minor coordination issues related to neurological impairment. It is hard to know how much it will continue to improve. She and her siblings have been under constant vet monitoring since they were sick and will continue to be checked regularly. We would like to find a neurologist to do any further testing as well. Jennifer is such a little fighter and what a sweet sweet little face she has. At this point, we truly don't know what his future has in store. Five of her siblings did not survive this illness so she has proven himself to be a fighter.
Smaller than her brothers, but in no way meeker! Jennifer is spunky and talkative with a cuddly side that loves being held while she falls asleep. Her coat is a silky copper color, almost solid from head to toe and she has a lovely little look on her face. She likes to play with her soccer ball and her brother Bowie, but Luther and JJ get plenty of wrestling time, too. She keeps up in the food arena, too, making sure she gets her share to feed healthy growth and energy.
More info and pics of Jennifer coming soon!

The adoption fee for puppies is $175. They are dewormed, up to date on vaccinations and will come with a spay/neuter voucher as well as a microchip voucher. Adopters will need to ensure the second and third booster shots are done when needed (usually 11-12 weeks and again at 15-16 weeks) as well as rabies which can be done between 16-20 weeks. Our rescue stays in touch with adopters to help with any training support as well as to ensure that all vetting is completed for puppies.
Please note: ALL puppies need regular one on one attention from the family. They need to be socialized, potty trained, played with and learn the structure and rules of the home. They cannot be left more than a few hours at a time. If your work keeps your away from the house for more than 4 hours of the day, a puppy is not the best pet option for you or your family. Older dogs can stay alone for a longer period of time, especially if they have another pet to keep them company. Dogs left alone for too long quickly become stressed, depressed and anxious which leads to destructive and inappropriate behaviors. This is not a happy combination for anyone. We adopt out our rescue dog to be long term members of your family so we have to take all these factors into consideration when reviewing applications.
