These six spunky girls are nicknamed the Lucky Times Six litter because when they first arrived in rescue, the thing they needed most was a dose of luck, so we made sure they got it with the names of good luck charms from around the world.
It was only a few days before Christmas when these girls lost the only home they had ever known and found themselves abandoned at the Carroll County Dog Pound. At first, it looked like luck wasn’t with them that day. The pound was just about to close for a long weekend, and that meant all of the kennels had to be cleared. They were scheduled to be euthanized almost as soon as they came through the door.
Luckily, one of the pound volunteers made a last minute call to New Lease on Life for help. We immediately agreed to take the entire litter of six in and find them good homes.
But luck and fate weren’t done with them yet.
As soon as they arrived, we noticed something was wrong. The puppies were happy and enthusiastic about greeting us, but each one had little patches of fur missing all over their heads. A quick trip to the vet confirmed our suspicions. They were positive for mange.
Then luck stepped in again. They only had demodectic mange, which is one of the easiest types to get rid of, and best of all, not contagious! So off they went to foster care with a bag of medications and vitamins to get them off to a good start.
Skip forward a month, and they’re completely cleared of the mange. They have had two negative skin scrapings and are officially cleared for adoption!
Although the girls are still reluctant members of the Hair Club for Dogs, their fur is slowly but surely filling back in. Give them a few more months, and no one will ever be the wiser.
Besides, who can resist these cuties.. fur or no fur? All of them ADORE people, dogs, cats and kids. The more the better! They’ve been raised in foster care with a lot of activity around them, so whatever happens, they’re up for it. Especially if it includes a lot of cuddling. They are constantly at your feet, eager to play, and if you let them sleep in bed with you, they’ll love you forever.
The puppies are currently paper trained, but these are smart girls, so we’re expecting them to take to housetraining very well. Just expect accidents in the beginning as they get the hang of it. No one is perfect on the first try.
Acorn is expected to be 20 – 30 pounds an adult.
The puppies are not yet spayed, but they will be fixed BEFORE going home with their new families. The first step in adopting is to meet the puppy you’re interested in at the shelter and fill out an adoption application. From there, if approved, you will leave a 50% deposit ($100) to reserve your puppy. These puppies are old enough to be spayed right away, so we can usually have your puppy spayed and ready to go home with you in just a few days. They are able to go home the day after surgery.
Due to the size of this litter, three of the puppies are at the shelter and three are in foster care. Who’s where?
* Clover – Shelter
