NO LONGER ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS!!
This adorable little guy is only 7 weeks and almost completely weaned, but still living as part of his family pack. Mom, Heidi, is always close by keeping a watchful eye on her 2 pups. Silas is the more confident pup, even though he's a little smaller than his sister, Sadie.
We feel fortunate to keep this family together. And important part of a pup's socialization is learning appropriate dog-to-dog interaction, so it's best for the puppies to remain with their mom and siblings until they are at least 8 - 9 weeks old.
If you are looking for a cute little pup, have a flexible schedule, and are ready to go into puppy mode, apply today.

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.
