Puppies, we’ve got puppies, we’ve got lots and lots of puppies. The mama, a Shepherd mix (our best guess), gave birth to NINE puppies—6 girls and three boys—in mid-November. All are doing beautifully and will be ready for their forever homes on or after 1/15.
So, what are they like? Well, they’re puppies. They’re playful, calm, lively, sleepy, quiet, loud, cuddly, and all things puppy. Individual personalities are starting to emerge, so every day is an adventure. Mama is about 45 pounds, good with other dogs (unless they try to mess with her pups), and a really lovely dog. As for the dads−yes, most likely multiple dads−we have no idea. So, the same goes for the litter. We’re pretty sure they’ll be medium-to-large adult dogs. All will have their first shots before adoption.
If you’re interested in adopting, you can meet the pups in Landsdowne, PA., by appointment. And, even if you think you’ve got your heart set on a particular pup by looking at the photos, one of the others may just steal your heart when you meet.
We want our pups to find their forever families, so a few things to consider:
*Spaying/neutering will be required when your puppy is six months old and we will follow up with each adopter.
*Please have a solid training plan for your new family member (not to mention teaching your existing family −human and non-human alike−about living with a puppy).
*We do not adopt puppies out as surprise holiday gifts. Everyone in your pack should be on board.
*Prepare for anything. As we said, these adorable pups’ breeds are anyone’s guess and their personalities are just starting to emerge. You and your puppy will be learning about each other as you go.
*Please be patient with the process; we want you and your new puppy to be a fantastic fit!
