"What did the cricket say to the squirrel??"
How would we know?? Cricket's don't TALK!!
Ok, now that we have broken the ice, let us tell you all about us 😊
We are strong, survivors. We came from the most DISMAL situation you can imagine.... born to an unwanted mother, sickly and sad we were dumped with her as well as one of our sisters dead bodies, like we had no meaning in this world...
BUT, LOVE WON OUT!!! We were seen by a kind woman who reached out to another kind woman who reached out to a rescuer in San Antonio- 5 hours away!!! AND we were SAVED!
So how is that for a rags to riches story?? It is OUR story.
We are happy girls now, we have come SO FAR from the scared, skinny, starving, mangy pups we were, but we haven't reached the finish line YET!!
That's where you come in... we are ready for our forever families. We are going to be a little picky, if you don't mind.
We prefer a home, with heat and ac, with food and with LOVE. Older kids would be great, we can still be a little nervous with new people (who can blame us?) and we would love another calm, confident dog to help us with their energy.
So, if that sounds like your home, APPLY TO ADOPT ONE OF US!!! Or BOTH!
Either way you will not only finish our story with a huge happy ending chapter, you will be encouraging all of the kind women who took the time and energy and love that was needed to get us safe and to wonderful families!!!
ADOPT.... DON'T SHOP!!! OUR LIVES DEPEND ON IT!!!

Something to Consider:

  • Puppies don't train themselves

    If you aren’t willing to train a puppy every single day, don’t get a puppy! It isn’t a one-shot deal. You have to be dedicated. And if you aren’t making progress – find someone who can help. Enroll in a puppy training class or hire a trainer. Most cities across the nation have some sort of availability for this kind of help and at different cost levels that would fit your budget.

     

    Puppies are going to poop a lot and pee even more; chew on everything; bite everyone; scratch people and furniture; steal things; destroy something at some point; pull on the leash; not move at all on the leash; bark; cry; beg for attention; and the list goes on. You’re going to have to walk them, bathe them, pick up everything below waist height, buy new shoes, and most importantly: TRAIN THE PUPPY NOT TO DO THESE THINGS! Ultimately, it is your responsibility to teach your puppy that this behavior is unacceptable.

  • Puppies turn into dogs...
