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 year.
ADOPTED ON 03-17-18 – Frosty is such a cuddle bug and a sweetheart. He is a social boy and enjoys the company of other dogs. He is submissive with his littermates and will play with anyone large or small, he just wants to be their friend! He enjoys running with his foster Mom’s other dogs in the fenced in yard, but he also likes lounging when he needs a break. His leash skills still need a bit of perfecting, as he is a young dog, but with a little bit of patience, positive encouragement, and consistency, we are confident he will be able to conquer this. His foster mom says that although he still needs a little help with these skills, she is still able to walk him. Frosty is very friendly with people but behavior with cats is unknown at this point in time. Being a typical puppy he does like to investigate new things, and will teeth on blankets and other items if no one is supervising him.
Frosty is a handsome sweet boy, but when someone new approached he is eager to be with humans. He greets every moment and every new situation with enthusiasm; it’s exciting to be around him! This lil’ canine can make anyone smile in a nanosecond, and he does — all the time! He’s just that awesome and fun-loving: everything a well-balanced, happy, socialized and eager puppy should be. Frosty encounters life with such a sense of delight and curious endeavor that it would befit all of us to pay attention to the wonder of the world in the way this dog does so naturally. Watch the videos and you can see him following and watching the foster taking the video. Much like his Lab personality, he is social, trustworthy, welcoming, and bright; however, he still has a lot of puppy in him though nothing out of the ordinary. Anyone who has ever raised a puppy will tell you that the last thing you want in your house is a highly motivated but bored pup, they will entertain themselves at your expense.
The story of his beginnings for him and his siblings is one that happens so often in rescue but can a rescue dog’s story be much like our lives? December 24th was a cold winter night, a pregnant Mama dog searched for a warm safe place to deliver her babies. Hope knew that the pups were coming very soon and she needed to be sure that she finds a secure shelter for her pups that would kept them warm and out of harm’s way.
Hope’s rescue story is not as famous as the one most people know, however it is a truly warm whole-hearted story that leaves all who tell it with a touch of wonder and awe and the sensation of maybe a miracle. Her story is unusually unique and all who know her will live on through her babies and the amazing families that open their hearts and homes to them. The families don’t know yet that they are chosen but we know that they are picked carefully and will take excellent care of Hope’s pups. Hope suffered so much, we can’t even imagine how she struggled, she was alone, hungry and cold but kept searching to find the right place for her babies.
Hope did not give up and her gift to the six families that offer their homes to her precious babies will have many nights full of life with tales of laughter and love to tell everyone they know of a good momma dog named Hope that was guided to a barn on a cold December night—yes, she found shelter in a barn. The happy times of playing ball, belly rubs, swimming, walks, cuddling and companionship will fill their lives. These families and children will pass Hope’s story on to their grandchildren about the dog they rescued because a mama dog named Hope searched for a warm safe place to have her pups, on Christmas Eve—and she was guided to a barn.
If you are looking to make a difference this year to a deserving dog in need, then don’t wait, Frosty is ready, able and willing to steal your heart and rock your world. He’ll certainly take your happiness level up a few notches, and provide hours of laughter with his snatch and run games of—chase me. An ideal home for him would be one where there was another dog to play and romp with and share his days, though it’s not mandatory if it is an active family or someone who runs. He adores humans and returns his appreciation with unconditional devotion. This attentive and smart little fellow is just looking for love and a home. He has proven himself to be utterly deserving of the best and we are committed to see that he gets that.
What was Hopes ending? Well, that is the best part of the story and a dog’s rescue story does parallel a human life, not in the story, but in the warmth and heart that guide dogs as well as humans.
The Answer To The Question about Hope, I gave you a hint in the bio when I said that “Hope did not give up and her gift to the six families that offer their homes to her precious pups….” Hope had six puppies and the wonderful family that owned the barn she had her babies in, adopter one of her pups. To add to this happy ending for Hope, they also kept her and she will live out her life with one of her babies and a wonderful family that fell in love with her. Just can’t get better than that, it should be a movie.
