Thank You Leaton Family for Saving Us.

This transport is to honor my husband, Gary Leaton. He loved old westerns, detective shows and Buddy Rich. He started playing drums when he was 5 years old and he practiced almost every day of his life. He named one of his dogs Drummer and he thought of himself as” Drummer”. So -----the DRUMMER transport.

Gary loved animals and donated to numerous animal rights organizations. He always felt he should be doing more to help abused or abandoned animals. He was very hard on himself because he couldn't save them all. He rescued the dog we had together when we got married, Master, from Lollipop Farm. When we lost Master to cancer, we got Logan from Joyful Rescues. Then 6 months later we added Haley to our family. They both enriched and added so much love and joy to our lives. We didn't know that Gary would have so little time with them. Just over a year with Logan and less with Haley. The only thing he wanted to do when he was in the hospital was come home to his “children” but it wasn't to be.

Gary would be so proud to know that lives were being saved because of him." ~Laura Leaton

This puppy was born about September 24, 2016 and may end up weighing in the 25 lb. range give or half again or half as much.  We are REALLY guessing here.  Mom is our Rebecca and she's definite Cocker mix and weighs about 20 lbs.  We have no clue what Dad was but some look definite Doxie.  They are all well adjusted, very friendly, busy, happy, adorable little things that will turn out to be a surprise package!   Whenever we have pups that "may" turn out to be smaller breed dogs we like to warn that they can have a need for a potty floor pads handy throughout their lives for those just in case moments. This pup does have a bit of demodex mange going on and his coat has been on the thin side with some loss on his ears.  We are treating with Revolution and it's improving every day, but he should be kept on Revolution as a flea and heartworm preventative through his first year of life.  Please google demodex as there is not enough room to write it all here.  However, it is not contagious and most dogs carry this mite naturally but when young and stressed by ending up at a high kill pound it is
