I am already spayed, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.
Carley is an 8 week old white lab and golden retriever mix. Her father was a pure bred white lab. She is the smallest of the litter, the tiniest one but she is tough and plays with her larger brothers and sisters as though she were a big dog!
I was at the Greenville, SC shelter picking up some cockers 2 days ago and as we were leaving I noticed a guy standing next to his truck in the parking lot. I stopped and asked him what was in the back of his truck. He had 7 puppies all huddled together. I talked to him for a while and he showed me a photo of his pure bred white lab who is the father of some of the puppies. He also said that a shorter black dog had been hanging around as well as a dog that looked like a husky. The mother dog belongs to his mom and is a short, smaller golden retriever. The short black dog was most likely a border collie as the two black puppies have BC markings. The guy wanted to keep one of the black puppies to give to his brother.
He told me that the momma had had the puppies underneath his moms house but when it started freezing she moved them to their barn. He said he had a fit catching the puppies that morning as they were almost feral. He was probably the first human to touch them.
Even though that shelter is a good one, comparatively speaking, for SC these babies would have caught something there and most likely gotten sick and died. They were pretty pitiful in the back of that truck in an open wire crate freezing and shivering. They were dirty and loaded with roundworms. I got my vet on the phone and got the approval to take them so we headed straight there. Ran a parvo test on them and that was negative so scheduled them to be altered on Monday. This means they are available for our trip to NJ on the 23rd. Currently they are being fostered by me in SC. I am working on socializing them and handling them. They are coming around FAST, last night they were playing with their toys and wrestling. Trying to attack my socks and untying my shoes!
I am deworming them now and they have had their first shots. They will need second and third shots in their new homes as well as to have their sutures (from their alters on Monday) removed. At four months they will need a rabies.
The best thing for these babies will be to get into new homes as soon as possible. They are sweet babies and have just not had the best beginning. I issue huge cudos to their momma dog for even keeping them alive in these freezing temperatures. They are very lucky little dogs.
