Meet Jocelyn of the "Beach Baby Pups!" The "Beach Baby Pups" are 13 week old Border Collie/Terrier mixes (best guess), who traveled all the way from Puerto Rico to find their forever homes. The pups were abandoned on a local dog beach in Puerto Rico, hence their name. Foster Update for Jocelyn: " Jocelyn is just a sweet as her brother. Probably the smallest of the litter. She is a super quick learner and will do almost anything for a Cheerio. Super playful with the siblings and loves to be held providing you with lots of wet puppy kisses." Because these puppies are babies, they will need an adopter who is home a good part of the day to continue their training - no exceptions! These babies have so much love to give...they just need a little time to learn how wonderful life can be. The pups are up-to-date on age appropriate vaccines and preventatives and will need to be spayed/neutered at the age of 6 months.
Please note, this pup's immune system will not be fully functioning until about 16 weeks of age and therefore, s/he is not suited for Apartment/Condo living or Town-homes without a private fenced yard and will not be able to go to public places where s/he could possibly be exposed to the germs of unvaccinated dogs, such as PetSmart/PetCo and dog parks until s/he is 16 weeks old.
The adoption fee for this dog is $350, which helps with the cost of routine vet care. This fee DOES NOT INCLUDE spay/neuter if the pup is not already spayed/neutered. If the animal you are adopting is not already spayed/neutered, you will be required to sign a contract legally obligating you to have the animal altered. ***Note that puppy adoption fees most often help generate revenue that goes towards older, special needs animals that need our help. Surgeries, heartworm treatment, boarding costs....all things that often result in adoptable dogs and cats being left behind to be euthanized. So adopting a puppy saves not just one life, but many!
***Please note that our first step in approving adoption applicants is to complete a vet check. Vetting of current and past pets is very important to us, thus we will be speaking withâ the vet(s) listed on your application to ensureâ that your âcurrent and previous âpet(s) are kept up to date on vaccinesâ (includingâ rabiesâ)â, spayed or neutered, âmaintained on appropriate monthly preventatives and âexamined annually by your vet.***
