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 06-10-22 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.
First, meet Boots. Boots is a Corgi/Beagle mix with the most adorable white “boots” on his feet. He and his three sisters were turned in to the rescue by a woman whose family members were having serious health issues and were unable to care for their pregnant dog. This wonderful woman was kind enough to take in the mama dog and compassionate enough to get the puppies to a safe place, giving these sweet pups a chance to find their own forever homes.
Our southern rescue took them right in, of course, and has been entertained by these four little whirlwinds ever since! Boots is full of life, loyal and self-confident, and caring towards his siblings, but will never miss a chance to cuddle with foster mom’s granddaughters. He is fine with other dogs, always friendly, and just has 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.
BOOTS & LITTERMATES:
BLAIR, BONNIE & BRIE
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.
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 Beagle’s fortune is in his adorable face, with its big brown or hazel eyes set off by long, houndy 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.
Boots is such a delight, and is ready to begin his journey to find his forever home. Consider opening your heart and home to this little sweetheart. We are thrilled he had a great start in life and hope he will soon find his happy ending!
