Welcome our newest wiggle butt, Pebbles, to DDB. This pretty girl has a gorgeous, chocolate brown coat, and hazel eyes that make her stand out. She’s submissive and affectionate with a moderate energy level, and has lived with toddlers, teens, and many other dogs. She’s currently being fostered in a very active home with 4 other dogs, 2 cats, and 2 teen girls who keep everyone on their toes. Pebbles is so happy to be included in all the action and is embracing family life.
Pebbles came from a home that was overwhelmed with too many dogs (10+), and a family who didn’t take great care of them. Our DDB volunteers have worked with this family over the years to help them with food and better accommodation for their dogs, and have tried to encourage spaying and neutering to avoid these dogs being bred and contributing to the rampant overpopulation problem in the south. Pebbles is only about 18 months old and has already had at least one litter of puppies. The family agreed to get to get her spayed and dropped her off at the clinic, but they didn’t come back to pick her up. They agreed to surrender her to DDB, and now this lucky pup is on a way to a much better life.
Pebbles is living it up in her new foster home, and soaking up the love and attention she’s getting. She is a pretty easy pup, already trained to run outside to go potty and come right back in, hoping not to miss a minute of family action. She loves to snuggle and has started sleeping with the girls at night. She’s making friends with her fellow foster pup is but is most interested in people.

You can also help save dogs like this one by becoming a foster, providing a rescue dog with a temporary home and giving them the love and care they need until they are permanently adopted. Every person who fosters is directly responsible for saving the life of a dog, because we can only save as many dogs as we have foster families available to welcome them into their homes. If you think you might be interested in becoming a foster and want to learn more, please go to http://foster.ddbnova.org and fill out an application.
