When we got the call about three puppies abandoned in a cardboard box in Roosevelt Park, we were expecting tiny balls of fur to arrive. After all, they were only two weeks old at the time, eyes just barely open.
What we actually got were nearly 5–pound GIGANTIC balls of fur who barely fit in our hands. The one nursing momma dog we had at the time, a little Puggle, took one look at the size of these pups and said, “Uh, Uh, think again!”
Luckily, this magical group thrived on puppy formula and canned food. Of course, in the beginning, they wore as much food as they ate (typical babies of any species), but they loved to eat.
Since then, they have grown up to be the most amazing puppies. They’ve grown up at the shelter, which means they’ve grown up in the middle of comings and goings day and night, tons of different people petting them, new cats and dogs sniffing them and lots of activity. They’ve loved it! They’re certainly not shy at all, bounding up to new people without blinking an eye.
The pups have been very well socialized. They love other dogs of all shapes and sizes as well as cats, which are just funny-smelling dogs as far as they’re concerned. They also adore kids. Big kids or small kids, they love to play with them.
We believe the pups are Mastiff/Black Lab mixes based on their size, coloring and body structure. At the moment, they are just barely under 30 pounds at 11 weeks old, so we’re expecting them to be at least 100 pounds as adults. In other words, plan on a big, BIG dog in about a year.
The pups are not yet potty trained, but they’re very intelligent, and we’re expecting them to learn the concept quickly. Magic has gone on field trips with one of our foster moms, and she says he does great with pottying outside while he’s with her, so it’s simply a matter of training and consistency. Expect some accidents in the beginning, but with a little time, they’ll get it.
As you’ll see in the video, they’ve just started with leash training, so they’re not particularly coordinated just yet, but they’ve already made great progress.
The puppies have already been neutered, vaccinated, dewormed and flea treated, so they’re ready for their new homes. If you are interested in adopting, you can meet them any time during adoption hours, Thursday through Sunday 5 to 8pm, or call 330–397–8270 to schedule an appt to see them at another time or on another day.
