Our vet has recommended that all dogs under 6 months not to spay or neuter the pups because they are too young and their bodies are not fully developed.  Adoption donation includes transport and all vaccinations, except for the Lyme—therefore, the dogs will not need to get any vaccinations for the first

ADOPTED ON 06-17-22 There are those rare occasions when we do not have to share upsetting rescue stories with our potential adopters. All too often, our stories are heartbreaking; abandoned puppies, abused dogs, unwanted pups that are callously discarded….the list goes on. This time, however, we are happy to announce that we have four of the most adorable puppies that just arrived at our rescue down south that are looking for loving homes. They are happy, healthy, little bundles of fun, and were spared a traumatic start in life.

Blair loves going on walks, car rides, and just spending her day with you. She is the ultimate little buddy! She has a super soft and luxurious coat, and she loves to be pet and scratched behind her ear. She lays with her legs out and being low to the ground makes it easy for her to flop over for belly rubs. She is a quiet and easygoing girl and she gets along great with other dogs. She makes sure that she shares love with everyone she meets. She is very social and enjoys a good wrestling match, chew toy time, a nice warm snuggle, and a soft bed to lay my head.

Our southern rescue took Blair and her siblings right in, of course and has been entertained by these four little whirlwinds ever since! Blair, Boots, Brie and Bonnie are full of life and caring towards each other, however, they will never miss a chance to cuddle with foster mom’s granddaughters. Blair and her siblings are have an all-around cheerful personality.

When deciding on adding a new member to your family, doing research on different breeds is always helpful to ensure the new pup is a good fit for all the family members, including the pup itself. 

Mix the Corgi with a Beagle and you get quite a pleasing combination! Not only is the Beagle an excellent hunting dog and loyal companion, it is also happy-go-lucky, funny, and thanks to its pleading expression, very cute. They were bred to hunt in packs, so they enjoy company and are generally easygoing. There are two Beagle varieties: those standing under 13 inches at the shoulder, and those between 13 and 15 inches. Both varieties are sturdy, solid, and ‘big for their inches,’ as dog folks say.

The Corgi is among the most agreeable of all small housedogs. It is a strong, athletic, and lively little herder who is affectionate and companionable without being needy. They are one the world’s most popular herding breeds. At 10 to 12 inches at the shoulder and 27 to 30 pounds, the Corgi presents a big dog in a small package. Short but powerful legs, muscular thighs, and a deep chest equip him for a hard day’s work. Built long and low, Corgis are surprisingly quick and agile.

They are a bright, sensitive dog who enjoys playing with his human family and responds well to training. As herders bred to move cattle, they are fearless and independent. They are vigilant watchdogs, with acute senses and a ‘big dog’ bark.

BLAIR & LITTERMATES:
BONNIE, BRIE & BOOTS

The Beagle’s fortune is in his adorable face, with its big brown or hazel eyes set off by long, hound ears set low on a broad head. A breed described as ‘merry’ by its fanciers, Beagles are loving and lovable, happy, and companionable. All qualities that make them excellent family dogs. No wonder that for years the Beagle has been the most popular hound dog among American pet owners. These are curious, clever, and energetic hounds who require plenty of playtime, but are also happy hanging around with their family.

Blair has the combination of the affection of a Corgi and the trait of a Beagle that loves hanging around. She is sure to steal away the hearts of anyone who meets her. She’s a healthy, happy puppy so really all there is to say about her is that she enjoys playing, and being loved. Blair loves going for walks and being out and about, and she will bring so much joy to the lucky family that adopts her.

Blair is ready to begin her journey to find her forever home. Consider opening your heart and home to this little sweetheart. We are thrilled she had a great start in life and hope she will soon find his happy ending!

CHILDREN AND PETS

Twelve Safety Tips for Children Meeting Dogs

  1. Always teach children how to approach and touch dogs
  2. Teach your child never to approach any dog while he’s eating or sleeping
  3. Always teach children how to  touch dogs
  4. Teach your child never to try to take the dog’s food

  1. No child should ever be left unsupervised with a dog.
  2. Always superviseany interactions between dogs and children
  3. Always supervise any interactions between dogs and young children for example; any biting or ear or tail pulling on the part of either party.
  4. Always supervise and make sure that children do not try to take the dog’s food away, no matter how friendly the child or dog is
  5. Supervise children when they pick up a puppy or small dog. Make them sit on the floor with the dog in their lap. Pay attention to the dog’s body language, and put him safely in his crate if he appears to be unhappy or uncomfortable with the child’s attention.
  6. No dog should ever be left unsupervisedwith a child because often-young children don’t understand that a cute little dog, or any dog, might not want “love and kisses.”

  1. Be prepared dogs will protect themselves
  2. Most important, it is your responsibility to make sure that your children and the dog are supervised at all times and safe. You cannot leave it up to the dog, the dog is an animal and will behave like an animal. They rely on us to guide and protect them, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

This Is Your Job, Not The Dog's


ANIMAL BEHAVIOR GUIDELINES

Many children, especially very young ones, do not realize that pets are living animals and not toys. Failing to teach a child how to handle pets properly can result in suffering on the part of the pet and, in some cases, injury to the child. Taking introductions slowly will allow you to introduce family dogs and your children safely

  • Dogs are animal first and when you are not around to tell them what to do, the animal behavior will respond.
  • Children are spontaneous and dogs don’t know how to react to their impulsive behavior – it does not mean they don’t like children.
  • Dogs don’t understand them because they live by rules – don’t get on the bed, go outside to do your business etc.what

  • If someone was running at you, whipping a sword in the air, yelling and wearing a cape – what would your response be?
  • In order to be sure that everyone is safe, you cannot leave an animal to supervise or deal with children under the age of 8. Therefore, if you leave the room, adult supervision of the dog and children, 24 hours day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year must be taken seriously.

  1. Leave another adult in charge—let them know that you are leaving;
  2. Take the dog with you;
  3. Take the child with you;
  4. Put the dog in a crate or room with a closed door.

The above are very easy basic solutions that let a dog know you are in charge and that you will keep everyone safe. If something happens, you can’t undo it.


Puppy Behavior, Growth & Development

Each stage of Puppy Growth and development is fascinating; by the time it reaches its first birthday a puppy is considered a mature, adult dog. Puppy Growth rate is fast compared to humans, just compare a puppy of 8 weeks to a baby of the same age.

One of the most common questions asked about a puppy’s growth and development rate refers to the eventual size of the puppy. How big will the puppy grow? How can you determine the adult size of a puppy? A young puppy is tiny and cute – everyone loves puppies! But will the puppy be suited to your environment? How much exercise will be required for a full grown dog? Will the puppy be a suitable pet for children? The breed of the puppy will determine the answers to these questions. A general response to the size and growth rate of a puppy and the adult size of a puppy is therefore not possible – it needs to be specific to the puppy’s breed.

  • Puppies are now considered to have finished their development and growth rate and are viewed as adult dogs.
