While we were having our first snow here down in Texas Patsy had her 5 puppies! Aren't they adorable?
This is Emma, the yellow lab, and Toto, a Norwich Terrier mix we recently pulled from Hillsboro Texas. Toto, only a year old, has been in the shelter since the spring. Because he is so young and has spent so much of his life in the shelter he needs some work with socialization with people and dogs. He is fine with one person, but gets scared out in public around lots of people and needs to learn how to act appropriately around dogs as well.
Emma will be the first of a new program we are launching of pulling one medium or large size dog from Hillsboro, Texas as well as the small dogs. When talking to Betty, the shelter manager at Hill County Paw Pals, we realized that they have some bigger dogs that can't find homes or other rescues to take them too. One dog has been in their shelter for 3 years so we decided to help. What also made this decision possible is a generous offer by Sleepy Dog Kennels to board a dog for us if we can't find a foster home.
Emma is a year and a half old, sweet and friendly with people and other dogs.
Emma and Toto will be arriving November 12th.
We will be selling people treats and dog cookies to raise funds for Patsy and her puppies tomorrow Saturday the 22nd from 11am - 2pm.
Patsy arrived at the Hillsboro Paw Pals shelter in Texas last week and is going to have puppies soon. Since we couldn't transport Patsy before the puppies arrive we decided to fundraise to help pay for the food, medical expenses, etc. Patsy and her babies will need before arriving in Vermont. Stand tuned for updates and if you would like to give a donation please email for address and we do have a donation container at Pet Food Warehouse in Williston.
