In the Spring we like to foster kittens. The local shelter I like to work with often needs help as kittens explode across the region. But recently I got an email about a puppy mill seizure in Alabama. Some folks from our local shelter went down to help, and brought back some of the dogs. I saw pictures of the conditions. They looked DREADFUL. We decided we could help. So we are fostering a mother Pomeranian dog and her four 3 week old puppies. Here is Cort with the mother, Ramona. We've found her to be very sweet. The boys call her the "licker" dog.
Here is Reid with one of the puppies, Rusty. This is Reid's favorite puppy out of the litter.
There is also Riley. He has unusual markings - they called him a merle male.
And then there are Reba and River, the two tan puppies. Can you stand the cuteness?
I am pretty sure there will be more puppy pictures in a future blog post. We will take care of them for a month or so, until they are ready for adoption. Luckily, I am not a 'small' dog person (except for my weakness for pugs and Welsh Corgis), so there won't be any temptation to keep them. We will, however, enjoy them during the time they stay with us. If you are local and interested in adopting one of the puppies (or the mom) seen here, please email me and I can help you get in touch with the shelter.
Readers, do you have any rescued animals at your house?
