UPDATE – Adopted 12/18 — HELPER, DEAR and MAMA MERCY Adopted 12/18/2021
UPDATE – Adopted 12/10 LIKER
UPDATED Adopted 12/5 CAREE and DEVO ADOPTED
Mama Mercy’s 7 pups are a few days past 8-weeks-old (born around 10/1/21), & they are excited about finding their forever homes. Their average weight is 7 pounds, so we predict that they will be medium-sized dogs as adults. Mama weighs about 36 pounds. We don’t know who the dad or dads are, so we are offering an educated guess on the pups’ adult sizes. Mama Mercy (Photo 5) will be available for Adoption after her spay. We are not taking applications for her at this time.
These pups have two speeds: crazy-playing (tugging, chewing, tossing, wrestling, running, etc.) or sleeping. Their new families will have lots of laughs watching their antics. They love people, dogs, & cats that will play with them. They love all toys, especially tug toys & boxes they can play on & in. When they finally tire of playing, they can be snuggly & affectionate, but their go-to preference is to play, & they like people best who will play with them.
These puppies are ruff-&-tumble, playing hard. So, they will thrive best in homes that are ready for fun & adventure & who know how to direct the puppies in appropriate play, homes who are ready to train & manage the puppies’ environment. The pups might also do well in a home with an adult dog that is even-tempered & will help to show a new puppy in the family the ropes. They know how to go in-&-out of a doggy door, but they don’t yet know the purpose of a doggy door. They eat their meals each in their own crate, but they are all sleeping together in a puppy pen.
