Baby Ruth & Heath's Info...

I am purebred, a special needs pet, not good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Baby Ruth & Heath's Story...

Dr Stacie called and her vet confirmed what my vet said and the pups will have to have a leg each amputated. She will be checking on cost for this surgery in her area. They will still be very adoptable. Three legged dogs find good homes and can have long excellent lives. Just sad this has to be done due to ignorance and greed of a breeder. Substantial funds are needed for these little beings surgeries. Please reach into your pockets or purses and send what you can!
From Heath & Ruth's foster: What I can't convey by email is how happy, trusting, smart, and surprisingly well adjusted these babies are. We are down to very few accidents--they howl when they want to go out or need a drink. They get around well ion grass, carpet or rugs. Wood floor and linoleum are more of a challenge on 3 legs. They sleep through the night at minimum 7 hours, and we've made up to 8!

I am 'raising' them the same way we did Sascha last year. Going to work every day, with lots of exposure to new people. And for dog interaction, they have my pack at home. Their kennel is next to the ones where the rest of our pack sleep, and the pups think they are part of the group. They will be well socialized to both people and pups when I'm done with them. And they doze off when we play jazz--Diana Krall and Norah Jones work best. I keep it going in my office during the day, and the iPod runs on repeat all night. I'll probably have to burn CDs to send to their forever homes.
I've learned some tricks and lessons for living with open wounds over the past week. If anyone ever needs them, let me know and I'll pass on the wisdom. Some things I though would work no problem didn't, and we had to get creative.

These little babies are sweet as candy. They are purebred German Shepherd puppies around 6-7 weeks old. They are brand new to our group and just left the animal hospital.

These babies came to our group from Corpus Christi. The breeder who had them decided to remove their dew claws herself at home. Their feet became severely infected and by the time she finally took them to the vet the infection had spread. This breeder took them to the vet not to have their feet treated but to have them killed.

Luckily the vet refused to do this and instead asked her if he could take the puppies. The vet tech contacted our group and we were happy to step in a help. The vet was able to get the infection under control but both puppies have had their toes amputated on one foot. Right now they are healing and building their strength up and their feet will be reevaluated. It is possible each puppy may need part of their leg amputated.

Right now they are in their new foster home for lots of TLC. Despite everything they have been through they are both very sweet puppies and enjoy human interaction.
