Meet Raymond, one of 4 pups! He came into rescue with his litter at 3 weeks. They were born in a shelter on August 30, 2016. Puppies and pounds don't mix well so we offered to foster them with their mother who had to be returned due to extenuating circumstances. When they were weaned Star-Mar decided that we wanted to find those perfect homes so we went from fostering them for the shelter to pulling them into rescue.
Raymond and his brothers and sister have been a delight . They have grown into beautiful pups on a natural raw diet, plenty of exercise and a lot of love and attention.
Raymond will be medium size. He started out as the shy puppy but has turned into the family clown. He is a confident and relaxed puppy who loves everyone he meets. He would be fine as an only puppy or with others. He is very much into people and attention.
These puppies are extremely well mannered and socialized far beyond their age. They have been raised on a farm with horses, cows, sheep, goats, deer, cats and other dogs of all sizes. They have spent these beautiful days outside romping on 15 fenced acres, hanging in the barn and sacked out on dog beds in the house in the evening. Raymond is working on house training. They are extremely well socialized.
Typical puppy, Raymond's needs an active owner/family. An adopter who is home more than an 8 hour work day allows; someone that works very part time ( limited hours a day), works from home or is retired. Puppies are not a candidate for spit shift workers because even if someone is home when the other is gone, much of that time is spent sleeping. Adopters must have a physically fenced yard. We will not adopt without a fence so please respect our requirement. Adopters will need to show proof of appropriate insurance. We would prefer adopters that are experienced with Pitt Bulls but will consider any responsible dog owner. Raymond would be fine with respectful children 12 or older. He would enjoy another dog but would be fine as an only dog with a super committed owner. We are asking that adopters be within an hour drive of Wooster, OH.
These puppies have been raised naturally. We would like to find owners that will continue to feed them a species appropriate no grain raw diet whether that is true raw, frozen prepared raw, freeze dried or dehydrated or at the minimum, a high quality, no grain kibble. We do blood titers instead of randomly vaccinating and use natural flea and heart worm preventatives. We are happy to discuss our natural care program with you.
Raymond and his siblings have had an extraordinary start in life. They have been raised with only positive treatment and loads of exposure to people other animals and different situations to develop them emotionally and with vital nutritional food, fresh air and unlimited exercise to develop them physically. AND they show it in every way.
Puppies are a lot of fun but a LOT of work. Adopters must have the energy, time and inclination to see that their puppy becomes a good canine citizen. Raymond, with his one stunning blue eye, is a funny guy; smart and engaging, that loves attention. He has had that start in life that we wish for all puppies.
If you feel that your lifestyle and environment can meet Raymond''s adoption requirements please contact Martha at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 330-466-3667 or 330-262-0515 for an application or more information. Raymond's adoption will require an approved application and home visit. The adoption must be completed with the adopter coming to the foster home. Adoption fee is $250.
Sorry we couldn't get standing pictures. If they're standing, they're moving.
PLEASE READ; If you are using a commercial, chemical flea preventative like Trifexis, or Frontline, etc., these are dangerous neurotoxins that poison the life force of your dog (his or her blood) in order to kill a flea. There are serious side effects including seizures and even death from the use of this product. It is so toxic that it is under the control of the EPA, deadly to wildlife, a toxic water pollutant, dangerous to children and pregnant women.. With over 40,000 complaints of sickness and death a year reported to the EPA from the use of these chemical flea products, we feel we can no longer put our dogs in homes who use or will continue to use these products for flea prevention. We are happy to talk with you about natural flea preventatives. Please understand that whether you put the flea product on the dog or in the dog the way the dog's blood is poisoned is the same.
