obviously not crate trained


obviously not housebroken


Introducing Jane!  Jane is one of eight puppies born to ACR on 1/28/18.  She is the best kisser of the litter hands down!  She will shower you with love anytime she is picked up. Jane loves to chase around her siblings and is quite the instigator, often zipping around and joining the fun. She is the first puppy to realize if she jumps on the dog bed and does the cutest little wiggle ever she can climb up onto the couch and nap next to foster mom. She currently weighs about 11.2 lbs and is among the smallest puppies in the litter.

The puppies Mama is Athena, a German Shepherd/ Coonhound mix.  We’re not sure who Daddy was but by the looks of this litter of 8, Dad might have had some lab or maybe a bit of husky in him.  The pups have the most adorable tail curl that they definitely didn’t get from their Mama.  In any case, Athena is a large dog and these pups won’t be any different. We’re guessing they’ll probably weigh 60-80lbs but it is difficult to tell since we know nothing about Dad and Mama appears to be a very young gal herself that may still be growing.

Everyone is working hard on being well adjusted pups!  They have meet a lot of friendly strangers in their home including men, women, and children.  They have even met a few friendly and vaccinated adult dogs. They have grown up with three adult dogs in the house beside Mama to teach them that not everyone likes puppies and their shenanigans, so the pups should be respectful other animals space.  House training is of course a work in progress, but they are doing AWESOME.  There is only one foster mom and 8 puppies but they are surprisingly tidy!  If she is on top of her game only a few accidents are happening a day.  When mom is sleeping or at work accidents are happening, but those don’t count!  The pups are trying their hardest to hold their potty overall.  Their bladders are just so tiny still and they can only be expected to hold it a few hours at a time.

The puppies currently have access to two rooms at the moment.  There is a play pen set up in the kitchen they are spending a lot of time in and where they are fed, and there is a few dog beds and a kennel set up in the living room where the puppies play.  During the day foster mom lets the puppies roam both rooms freely.  When they are tired the puppies will split up and a few will curl up in the kennel, a few more share the doggy bed, and the rest end up in the puppy play pen.  So far *knocks on wood* the puppies have never peed on their dog bed or in the kennel.  All three of their favorite hangouts though are just littered in their favorite toys.  These pups LOVE to play!  Ropes, stuffed toys, chew toys, plastic bottles, …foster moms flip flops… you name it and these puppies think it’s a toy.  If it is on the floor, its fair game.

Puppies are cute and cuddly, but they’re also a lot of work. They need consistency to learn housebreaking, crate training, and basic manners.  Foster mom is doing her best to give them a good foundation but there is so much more training yet to go.  The last thing we want is for them to get adopted and returned later on down the road because they’re no longer tiny and squishy and have had no training whatsoever. If you’re committed and ready to take on a little one, fill out our adoption application and let the games begin, and may the odds ever be in your favor!!
