Have you heard about the new lovebugs coming to join our rescue this weekend?
Sweet Mardi Gras has been in rescue for several weeks, but is finally journeying to Richmond for foster care!
Seriously, how could anyone not fall in love with a sweet face like this?
Mardi is less than a year old and is most likely an Australian Shepherd/Labrador Retriever mix. He’s up to date on vaccines, neutered, crate trained & 90% housebroken. My mom has been fostering him for the past week and says he is just a real delight. He gets along brilliantly with all of her dogs (all 6 of them), has no food/toy aggression issues, is interested in the cats but only as friends, and would do very well in a family.
Our other new additions include this tiny little litter of what appear to be Catahoula Puppies … we’ll see once they get here! Their names are Comet (m), Cupid (m), Donner (m) & Blitzen (f). They are approximately 5 weeks old so we are going to work very hard to keep these little darlings healthy and happy & with full bellies on their transport so that we can spoil them senseless once they arrived in Virginia!
And last, but certainly not least, we have Mr. Vixen. A hilarious name for a cute and quirky little dude. Vixen looks to be a ‘houla mix and the shelter has him listed at 10-12 weeks. I’d wager that Santa’s little elf is probably a little closer to 6-7. Either that or he’s a chihuahua mix – regardless, we’ll take him! ;)
Foster Homes Needed - We are currently at our foster-pup maximum and will not be able to take any more dogs into rescue until the pups we currently have are adopter OR until we have more foster homes. That being said, if you’ve ever considered fostering …. now’s the time! Even if you can only foster a dog or puppy temporarily through the holidays, until Christmas, or until the kids go back to school – that’s okay – we still need you! Fostering is a great way to “get a puppy fix”, find out if a dog is right for you, or see how your other pets react to having a new dog in the home. It’s also a great way to give back – and to allow us to save even more precious lives. You can email us anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on fostering!
