You can always tell when a litter of pups has grown up in one of our amazing foster homes because they are friendly, outgoing and fearless. And that describes this litter perfectly.
Their mother, Coka, became pregnant with her own after going on a jaunt through the neighborhood. Once her family realized that babies were on the way, they sent her to live with a friend to give birth. Just one problem…. the friend lived in an apartment that didn’t allow animals.
It’s hard to sneak one dog into an apartment. Trying to keep a momma dog with NINE puppies a secret is nearly impossible, which they quickly discovered, so a plea for help went out to local rescue groups and found its way to us at New Lease on Life.
At only two weeks old, the pups and mom made their way here and quickly moved into foster care where they’ve been thoroughly spoiled and loved. From Day One, the pups have been around other dogs…. big and small…. cats and kids of all ages. They love to be cuddled and snuggled. As far as they’re concerned, everyone and every animal in the world is a potential friend. They love them all!
Out of curiosity, we did have this litter DNA tested, and the results were shocking. Before the test came back, we were sure they had some American Bulldog in them, but the DNA shows that their three primary breeds are actually Boston Terrier and Miniature Bull Terrier (both of which we can see)…. and most shockingly Shetland Sheepdog, which has everyone baffled.
But no matter what…. they sure are adorable!
Based on the DNA results and the current size/age of the pups, we’re expecting them to be 35 to 45 pounds as adults, so potential adopters should plan on an adult dog on the lower end of medium sized.
The pups have not yet been housebroken, but they’re all extremely smart, so we’re expecting them to pick it up in a lash once they enter their new homes. Consistency is key, and the quickest, easiest way to housebreak is crate training. We’ll be happy to give you tips.
The pups are currently in foster care, but they would love to meet you. Please call 330-397-8270 to schedule an appt to meet them. They are not yet spayed/neutered, but this will happen BEFORE they go home with their new families. In order to reserve a puppy for adoption, you must call to make an appt to meet them. During the appt, you can fill out an adoption application. If approved, you must leave a 50% ($100) deposit. This will reserve your favorite pup for your family. They will then go home with you the day after their spay/neuter at 8 weeks old.
