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 11-22-19: Four beautiful puppies dumped on a back road by careless humans. Just another sad story heard all too often. Luckily, the ending is often happy; a big-hearted person drives by, sees the box of puppies, and brings them to a shelter, where they can wait for their forever homes to adopt them.
This is the case for Penny and her three siblings. Just born in July, someone thought it was a good idea to drop them off on a back road to fend for themselves. Too often, these people think this is the “best thing”, that someone will pick them up or they will survive on their own. This is just not the case. They are exposed to the weather, wild animals, and they just do not know how to take care of themselves. Penny and her siblings are Basset Hound mixes, but one thing is for sure: the level of cuteness is unbelievable!
This sweet girl is only 10 pounds so far, but she is a bundle of fun. With her gorgeous coloring and puppy dog eyes, 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 Penny is that she enjoys playing, playing, and more playing. She loves tumbling around with her brothers and playing with her toys. All that is missing is a family to call her own. Take a look at Penny, and consider welcoming her into your home, and giving her the warm, loving home she deserves.
Penny is a little reluctant at first when she gets out of the kennel, like her brother, Leonard. Once out she follows you around, she is very affectionate, laid back and wants to be held, cuddled and carried like baby. She is a bit shy at first, no wonder, after being deserted, but warms up quickly when given loving attention. Understandably, she is cautious to play, but her sweet gentle and people-pleasing personality pushes that aside and the puppy, overflowing with happiness and energy emerges. She greats everyone as if they were her best friend. After a day of playing, she turns into a lapdog – don’t be surprised if you find her sleeping in a bed under the covers.
