This puppy is one of a litter of 11 (wow!) who were orphaned at 3 weeks old after their mom was bitten by a snake and did not survive. The owners of the mom dog could not take care of the babies and reached out for assistance. Between our team members and Vet, we all took turns caring for them, bottle feeding and holding them, making sure they had everything they needed. They were also loaded with intestinal parasites, so even though they came into our care under sad circumstances, it was good that they were able to start treatment for parasites early so they didn't cause any further health issues. These babies are curious and playful, and we are working on paper/potty pad training now. They would do well in moderately active families, and with other dogs and/or kids.
Parents- please keep in mind that young puppies like to use their mouths to explore the world around them, and this includes (but is definitely not
limited to) furniture, socks, undergarments, furniture, and hands/fingers. It is very important not to allow puppies to use hands or fingers for teething. Tell the puppy 'no!' and try offering a puppy-safe toy as redirection. IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ADOPTION, PLEASE READ ALL ADOPTION INFORMATION BELOW!
