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 12-11-21: This is our pretty Dotsie. She is part of a larger case that our rescuers have been involved in for some time now. It’s one of our more heartbreaking stories, and we all hope and pray we will soon see a happy ending for all the pups involved.
It all began with Della, Dotsie’s wonderful mom, who tried desperately to care for all her pups even in her condition. Della had been living in horrid conditions for quite a while. Rescuers had tried relentlessly to save her, but to no avail. Della’s cruel human refused her basic necessities or medical care, leaving her starving, heartworm positive, and with painful skin conditions. They also refused to get her spayed, so while she endured these other atrocities, poor Della had three litters of puppies too!

LIZZIE, MITCHELL, DOTSIE, GRACIE, HUGO, BRAXTON
Della’s first litter was rescued, as Della’s owner really didn’t care too much about what happened to them. Happily, they are all in wonderful homes now. Her second litter “disappeared”. Saddened so greatly by this discovery, our rescue angels took matters into their own hands. Della was finally removed from that house and taken in by a wonderful elderly woman who has painstakingly nursed Della back to health. Della will remain with her, as she was able to gain Della’s trust and is now doing very well, but unfortunately, Della was pregnant when she was seized. Enter Dotsie. A gorgeous girl who is ready to begin her own journey to a loving forever home like her mom.
DOTSIE FIRST TIME ON A LEASH
Dotsie is a beautiful 6 month old Great Pyrenees mix. She is about 50 pounds right now, spayed and can come north after September 25th Or October 2nd, and will be a large girl when she is full grown. Dotsie has gorgeous creamy fur and a sweet face. She looks just like her brother Hugo and sisters Lizzie and Gracie. They have the same soulful eyes. Dotsie is one of the sweetest pups of the litter, she can be a little reserved until she warms up to you but then she is right beside you every step you make. Foster mom says this little girl is very gentle, and enjoys her time with her humans very much. Almost as much as she enjoys going on an adventure with her brothers and sisters! She is very loving and attentive, watching and following foster mom all over! Dotsie has lots of energy, but can quickly settle down and become a very large and loving lap dog!
Dotsie and her sister Gracie are very smart and love to keep an eye on you and watch whatever you are doing. They both enjoy being touched are seemingly content to just be there in your presence. They are described by their foster as very low maintenance girls and would make a wonderful pet for any families that are low key and like to just hang out at home. Dotsie and Gracie have plenty of energy but also know how to settle down and be calm and occupy themselves
When considering an addition to your family it is important to do some research on breeds so that everyone involved, including the new pup, will have an enjoyable transition and a lifetime of happiness. It’s important to choose breeds that blend well with your family and their lifestyle. The Great Pyrenees is a steadfast guardian who usually exhibits a Zen-like calm, but can quickly spring into action and move with grace and speed to meet a threat. This breed is a powerful workhorse, but is just as happy lounging around the house. They are extremely affectionate with all the family members and have an average activity level. That combination makes for a wonderful companion for a family with children (we always stress that no dog or child should be left unsupervised when introducing a new dog to the home) or an active couple who enjoys hiking or going to the beach.
We are looking forward to finding these pups their forever home to honor Della and the loving mother that she is. Soon this chapter will close, and all these sweet pups will have homes. If Dotsie is the girl for you please consider welcoming her into your hearts and home!
