Parish Pups (3 males) (LA)'s Info...
Rescue Group: PAWS NEW ENGLAND
|Breed:||German Shepherd Dog/Labrador Retriever Mix||Color:||Tricolor (Tan/Brown & Black & White)||Age:||Puppy|
|Size:||Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)||Sex:||Male|
These three adorable males were found in Louisiana in a drainaqe ditch and caught by one of our friends in that area; there are 3 males and 1 female (who at the time of this posting is still on the loose but not for long!).
Mom is a yellow labrador retriever mix (we have photos) and dad is a pure bred German Shepard (black) - known to person who found the puppies. Owner refuses to neuter him so PAWS NE is taking the stray mom too so he can't produce any more puppies - she will be spayed and we'll find her a great home too!
More photos coming shortly - we are naming them after some Louisiana Parishaes - the fawn one is Caddo and the two black/tan males will be Franklin and Caddo.
Approx. 4 months of age but we will confirm ASAP w/ vet visit - they will be neutered, brought up to date for vaccinations and dewormed - hopefully arriving into New England mid -February at the latest.
Adoption Donation: $475 (transport from LA is 185.00 per dog, thus our slightly increased donation request.
If you have any questions please email this dog's adoption coordinator: firstname.lastname@example.org

Paws NE abides by the quarantine regulations in RI, MA and NH - CT does not require quarantine for adopted dogs. NH quarantine is $75.00 per dog and $40.00 of that fee is passed along to the adopters; PAWS NE will cover $35.00. RI quarantine is no charge. Dogs quarantine in RI and NH are adoptable to Massachusetts.
We are often asked, ""Why would you charge ""so much"" for a rescue pet? Why not just place it in a good home?"" The answer is because we need adopters who are willing to support all rescue pets, not just the dog they adopt. A young, healthy dog might cost us $150-400 in (discounted%29 vet care, and many people will want to adopt it. An older one with health issues can easily cost $500-1500 in veterinary expenses, and it may require months of foster care for rehabilitation%3B yet we can only ask a minimal adoption fee, and it may be a long time until anyone comes forward to adopt it. Fees from the younger, more adoptable dogs help offset the cost of caring for the others. Most of our dogs have a sad story to tell, and some have suffered through years of neglect or abuse. We hope that you too are willing to give an opportunity for a better life to ALL of our dogs by supporting them through adoption fees. Without these funds, our rescue efforts would not be possible.
