Blitzen is a male puppy currently fostered in Tampa, FL (Hillsborough County). He was born December 16, 2016.

Blitzen is playful and affectionate. He may be cautious with new people and unfamiliar environments, but he is a loving, active puppy. He loves his baby pool, likes to chase a tennis ball (although he's still learning to bring it back!), and enjoys playing with his foster mom's other dogs. He is appropriate in his play with other dogs, although as a big, goofy puppy he can be a little too enthusiastic for dogs that do not enjoy the company of big puppies.

His mother is a smooth coat border collie mix and father is unknown, but from the "lab mix" look of the puppies, it looks like he may have been a lab or lab mix. One of Blitzen's littermates received DNA results indicating a mix of border collie, American Staffordshire terrier, Shetland sheepdog (sheltie), chow, and retriever mix. Blitzen will probably be 40 to 50 pounds when full grown. His mom was pregnant when she was pulled from a shelter, and 10 healthy puppies were born in the foster home.

Blitzen should do well with older children (approximately 10 years old and older) and other dogs. He has not been tested with cats or young children. He is friendly but large and enthusiastic.

Blitzen is housebroken, neutered, up-to-date on vaccines and preventives, and microchipped.

About Ewenity Farm Herding Dog Haven

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a small rescue organization located in Southwest Florida. Being small helps us give more one on one attention to individual dogs and their needs. Rescued dogs are kept in our homes and treated as our own. Herding dogs are unique. They are a highly intelligent and require much of the owner’s attention. The dogs are evaluated, when they come into the rescue, for any temperament and health issues. Then they are given basic obedience, socialization and rehabilitation as it is necessary.

It is our sole purpose to find forever homes for these loving, wonderful dogs that have been discarded through no fault of their own. All adopted dogs are spayed/neutered, up to date on shots, heartworm negative, micro-chipped, and on flea and heartworm preventative.

Our Adoption Process...

We require potential adopters to fill out an Adoption Application.When that is approved we can arrange for the prospective adopter to meet the dog they are interested in. We do require an adoption contract to be signed at time of adoption. We conduct home visits. There is an adoption fee that is usually around $250 per dog to cover any expenses we have incurred. We do have dogs located at qualified fosters throughout the state and also out of state.
