New Year’s Puppies ~ Adopted

Our last transport of the year. We were contacted about a parcel of Border Collies that had been dumped by a breeder at an animal shelter in rural Georgia that euthanizes all of the animals every Wednesday. Yes, you read that right: ALL. Could we take them? We were so full but…..

That last transport included this beautiful litter of puppies. Their poor momma, Charlotte, had just about give her last measure taking care of them. She was emaciated, scared and coughing like crazy. At only 25 pounds, I can’t even imagine how she had continued to nurse 5 puppies ranging from 5 to 8 pounds! Concerned for her, we brought her into our vet and then sent her to fosters Mark and Leslie in Clearwater to be nursed back to health.

Her puppies went home to be fostered by the wonderful Cathy and her family in Oviedo. Cathy has years and years of experience in fostering puppies, and there couldn’t be a better place for this litter to rest. Four of them seemed fine, but little Theo had the same cough as his momma. Our vet told us that a terrible upper respiratory infection is going around this winter and to not take this lightly. Cathy immediately started Theo on some strong medications and separated him from the others for their health. Don’t worry ~ he’s had plenty of people lovin’ during his recovery. He’s perked back up and is anxious to join the fray again. The only tri-colored puppy he has a happy personality and always runs over to be picked up. Adoption Pending.

Marcel is the other boy in the litter. He looks like the Incredible Hulk because he is always hanging out with Brie, who is the smallest of the litter. His cream colored fur is very soft. A quiet boy, he likes to play tag . Adoption Pending


Kennedy has classic black and white Border Collie markings. The largest of the litter, she is very outgoing and friendly. She is going to be a pretty good sized dog since she has really big paws. Adoption Pending.

Freckles is so named because of the cute speckled markings on her nose. She is a tail wagger who loves to play and have fun. She is also has the shortest legs. What a doll! Adoption Pending.

You can see more photos of this litter of puppies on their Facebook photo album.
