It is rare for us to have young puppies in rescue. It is even more rare for us to have perfectly healthy puppies in rescue. Yet we currently find ourselves in such a spot with three little bundles of joy.
Moose was an owner surrender at 11 weeks of age. His owners
were first-time Bulldog owners and were not really prepared for some of the characteristics and behaviors of a Bulldog puppy. Moose is with a foster family until he can be neutered at six months of age. His family reports that is is learning fast to go outside, to sit for treats and how to be a part of a family. He is also learning to get along well with an older foster brother and sister. He has some special tickle spots and is developing quite a personality. Moose already has an adoption pending.
Noel came from a breeder in east Texas. She was surrendered because she had some health issues that the breeder could not solve and they felt we could get the right medical treatment. Noel is only 12 weeks old but has had breathing problems and a cough since birth. She has a hypoplastic trachea (narrowing of the trachea) which hinders her breathing more than the average Bulldog. She also has some vision problems that are being evaluated. Neither of these issues seem to slow this little girl down at all! She loves to run and play with her human siblings and foster fur siblings. Noel is also the daughter of recently adopted Abby (one of the Fortunate Five). Noel will stay in foster care until she is at least six months old and she can be spayed. Noel already has an adoption pending.
came from the same breeder as Noel and also has some medical issues that the breeder could not address. He is also 12 weeks old and he had some spots of demodex mange, a cherry eye and an issue with his knee caps. The knee caps are not fully developed and will not stay in place when he is active. He is currently being evaluated for surgery to correct the problem. Yet Nicholas is perpetual motion around his foster family and his foster sister. Nothing will slow this guy down! He will also have surgery to correct the cherry eye and will need to stay with a foster family until he is neutered at six months of age.
