While some of a litter of puppies residing at the have already been spoken for, two of the irresistible little cuties, along with their wonderfully attentive mom, are still available for potential adoption.
Going into the shelter today was an extra special treat for me. I was able to visit with beautiful Amstaff/Lab mix Maggie and her young puppies that were recently pulled from a home that was overrun with so many neglected animals that the owners were evicted.
There's no doubt — the first thing I noticed when I walked in was that these adorable little roly-polys were being fed extremely well by their mom.
While a few of the puppies are already spoken for, two tan baby girls in the video, Easter and Willow, are still available. Since they are only about four weeks old, they can be placed on hold to be taken home only when the shelter deems them fit to leave.
While getting puppies adopted never seems to be a difficult task, it's often a different story for the mother dogs who remain behind.
As soon as I knelt down to say "hi" to Maggie and offer her a snack for her hard work, her super-sweet disposition came shining through immediately. And she couldn't have taken the treats more gently from my hand.
But it was when I looked into this girl's eyes, I was hit by the fact that she'd been through way too much for her young age of only 2 years and that after she's done taking care of her pups, she'll have more than earned the right to a beautiful home where she can rest, play, be pampered like a princess and be part of a family.
She's not completely at ease right now with people around due to her natural protectiveness over her pups. But she should be able to relax much more after her babies go to their new homes.
If you are interested in being considered to become a proud new parent of any of these precious pooches, please contact the shelter at 765-1811 and find out more information.
Please note: Maggie and all the puppies will spayed or neutered before going to their forever homes.
