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

RESCUE STORY: Through no fault of their own dogs, fall into circumstances created by humans. 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 that are looking for loving homes. They are happy, healthy, little bundles of fun, and were spared a traumatic start in life.

Our rescue took Bonnie 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. Bonnie and her siblings are have an all-around cheerful personality.

PERSONALITY:  Bonnie is exceptionally beautiful, she gives all she meets unconditional love, she has a charming personality and a playful demeanor – this girl is the total package!  In addition to trying to make you fall head-over-heels in love with her, another one of Bonnie’s life goals is to dash over and under obstacles while her siblings chase after her. She is the absolute perfect balance of sweet & playful. She loves to play till she drops and then crawl up on your lap to get some special time with her favorite humans.

Bonnie is an absolute cuddle bug. She loves to be with people and other dogs as often as she can. She is an avid chewer and loves having bones, chew toys, and squeaky toys to play with. This curious puppy is constantly in motion, working her nose and ears to observe everything she can about the world. Not only does she work her way around the floor, this silly girl does her best to climb to all heights available.  When Bonnie has finally been worn out for the day she sprawls out on the softest place she can find and falls asleep, her cute little tongue often peeping out as she dreams away the day of play.

Bonnie is an absolute heart-breaker with her stunning good looks and loving, energetic temperament.  However you only have to pick her up and give her some love and she’ll be relaxing in her favorite spot, in your arms. This wonderful girl will be giving you kisses, and falling asleep in your lap in no time. Bonnie communicates her emotions through his ears and eyes. Her ears are perky and tall when she’s happy and playful and moves back or to the side as she expresses other emotions. Her beautiful eyes stare right into your soul and tell you how much she loves you. Bonnie has stolen her foster momma’s heart. Give her a chance and she will steal your heart. I love big people, little people, dogs, and even cats! I am mostly just curious about this great big world.

Due to the nature of rescue work, Bonnie’s true breed can never be 100% known without genetic testing. Bonnie is likely a mix of corgi and a small terrier such as a Jack Russell or rat terrier. Terriers are extremely energetic and enjoy companionship. A terrier-corgi mix becomes close with other family pets. Still, there are times when these dogs become territorial in the presence of other animals they are not familiar with. They are highly vigilant and protective. Being small and having a dwarf-breed doesn’t mean it can’t protect you. This crossbreed dog is known to be loyal and protective of owners and loved ones. They are an excellent family dog. This dog is sweet and loves to cuddle. Most of the time, it likes to sleep on soft materials like pillows and couches. And, sometimes lean its head on you and be close. Adapting to a new home won’t be a problem as they have no issues in familiarizing themselves.

Training is a must for any terrier they love having tasks to achieve. Bonnie is no different as she is determined and attentive. She listens and focuses very closely on her environment and loved ones. With proper training and time spent with this sweetheart, Bonnie will be a wonderful companion who dotes on all she loves with kisses and cuddles.

BONNIE’S NAME:  Dogs named Bonnie tend to be loyal, and loving. This name is also associated with intelligence, friendship, and companionship. Bonnie is a one-syllable dog name, making it short and snappy. The name also ends in a vowel sound, so it’s easy for dogs to recognize.

Bonnie isn’t one of the most common names, so your dog will certainly stand out. If you love the name, you should pick it! Bonnie is not a popular dog name. That’s great if you like to stand out from the crowd!

  • Bonnie ranks #506 with users of   PupNames.com.
  • Bonnie ranks #1,258 in the            New York City Dog Name Database.
  • Bonnie ranks #1,386 in the            Los Angeles Times ‘Top Dogs’.

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.

Do you have room in your heart for a new best friend? Because Bonnie wants nothing more than to share her heart with someone who can appreciate it for what it truly is: Special.

Bonnie’s Mom is a Corgi Mix. Corgi’s are 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.

  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.”

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.
