ADOPTED ON 10-15-17 – 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. 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.
FROM THE FOSTER: Silas is a cuddle bug. He likes to follow you as you walk and he likes to follow his brother. He will melt in your arms. He is a little slower picking up commands and needs more time understanding what is expected of him. He loves being outside just as much as being cuddled inside he loves playing with toys and balls and other dogs. He is incredibly patient with cats and loves chewing on rawhide’s. Silas can always make it out of the crate and outside in time to do his business, so can Rio. They both really enjoy spending their time together. We take them on separate walks and excursions to help lessen the separation and any anxiety that may go along. They both do really well in the crate with the correct guidance.
HISTORY: Silas and his brother were fostered at a farm in LA and have traveled north to live in a home up north. They are both well behaved and learning their manners. They are especially unique and will share toys with each other as if they are saying, “Hey, check this one out”. Their northern foster is introducing some new in home skills and teaching them when to be calm.
ABOUT SILAS: Silas is energetic and very lovable. He enjoys playing with his brother as well as his foster mom, and gets along just fine with the older foster dogs, except that they get a little grumpy with him sometimes with all his shenanigans. Silas eats very well, and prefers to share his brother’s bowl of food with him rather than eat his own. When they finish, they share the other bowl. He loves to be held and enjoys thoroughly the belly scratches he gets from his foster mom.
Silas and his brother were rescued from a city dog pound down south by our rescue partners in Louisiana after having been picked up off the streets, which leads us to believe they were most likely abandoned by careless, irresponsible people that did not want to be bothered with puppies. This disheartening story is unfortunately very common. Imagine dumping these adorable, little “dust balls” on the street to fend for themselves? Luckily there are kind and caring people who will help these pups so that Silas find a loving forever home.
LAST CHAPTER: Silas is waiting for that ideal forever home where he will be cherished as deserving family member. It’s sad these second chances are even necessary for these dogs, but we are committed to them and will devote the time and energy to their rehoming and not just move them to save more dogs. We carefully seek good matches because these animals have already endured more than they should have—through no fault of their own. We owe it to the dogs we rescue and all the wonderful families who might consider welcoming our four legged pups into their hearts and home.
Silas is ready for a new life and would be a great addition to most any family. Our rescue works from our hearts for our dogs; it is the least we can do for them because they deserve nothing less. We are committed to our dogs and want to be sure that the wonderful people who stand to be the last chapter of their rescue and the first chapter of their new forever lives deserve him. Don’t let him slip by—there is a lifetime of wonderful memories waiting for you!
