Bear and her pups

Post by gbste on Wed Sep 04, 2013 8:01 pm

A little over a week ago, I got a message from a Facebook friend.  She said she had seen a very thin mama dog with a bunch of puppies, and thought that SCARF should rescue them.  I asked her for an address, but she never could get that to me.  (People here are weird about addresses.  They describe where a house is in great detail, but they never know the street or number for some reason.)  On Labor Day, she finally was able to tell me exactly where the trailer house is, so I went on over there, and asked if they had some puppies that needed homes.  They showed me the pups, which are in good condition, and the mama dog, Bear, who is in terrible condition.  Long story short, I was able to get them to surrender mama and pups, find them a foster home, and get them picked up and safely delivered to the foster home yesterday.  They kept a puppy Crying or Very sad , but I will check in with them and vaccinate the pup for them, at least.  Here's a picture of Bear at her foster home.  The puppies are loaded onto Petfinder, and should show up on our public page(www.secondchance-arf.petfinder.com) soon.  The pups are named after the characters on The Big Bang Theory.

Awww... I hope the pup who stayed behind has a better fate. Maybe with fewer animals, this one will fare better.

I know what you mean about addresses. People here are kind of the same way. And, we got E911 addresses about 6 years ago. Some people still refer to addresses with the old rural route numbers. Confusing!

When I picked up the mama and pups, the people said that one of the puppies had been stolen. Yesterday I got some information to post a puppy that one of our foster families had just gotten. I would be very surprised if this pup, Tippy, is not the missing puppy. She was found at a little grocery store blocks away from the others, but if she was taken, she easily could have escaped. At the foster home of the other pups, one escaped from its pen, got into the pen where the family's German shepherds are kept, and was discovered being carried around by the big shepherd. They're little pups and are difficult to keep fenced.

Mischief from the get go. Smile I'm glad the pup found a safe haven eventually. I'm also glad the shepherd was nice to the little one.

Penny and Howie were adopted today.  Lenny and Sheldon went back home to mom, who was very happy to see them.  She's looking much better, and will recover faster with only 2 pups to care for.

I am so glad some of them found their forever peoples already. I have a feeling it won't be long before Lenny and Sheldon find theirs too. Maybe Bear will just stay put where she is?

We have a family driving in from the Springs in a few minutes for a meet and greet with the 2 remaining pups. I'm thinking we'll only have one pup and mama left tonight.

The little tan dog belongs to the volunteer who let us have the meet and greet at her house.  The little girls wanted to take him home too.
