Dino- in Maine!
August 2016 - Dino is here in foster and is doing awesome. He lives with one large and one medium dog and he is great with them, but can be a little hesitant with some bigger dogs that he meets. He did not know much about leash manners when he got here but now he is doing fantastic. He is a world class snuggler and will put himself in the crick of your neck to be close to you. He is mellow as puppies go, but loves to play and is already learning something new every day. He's doing awesome on potty training too! He has met some young children and was hesitant at first placing himself squarely behind the legs of his foster mom, but once he felt more secure he did better. Big kids that move a little slower are just fine for him. He is the teeniest little guy at 9 lbs!
Dino is a little sweetheart, his name is short for Dinosaur; he was named by our three year old friend Lucas who donated to his care. Dino and and his siblings and their mama Dottie are all survivors! After Dottie was dropped outside a vet's office in the south, she gave birth shortly after. The puppies contracted the deadly parvovirus but Dino, DJ and Darlin' pulled through and are healthy and happy puppies with no long-term effects. Our rescue partners spent an extroardinary amount of money on the babies' health and well-being and we are so happy to finally get to meet them soon.
They are typical mischievous adorable pups who get along with everyone. They live with adult and baby dogs in their foster home and are doing terrific.
We included a picture of Mama Dottie so you can see where they get their cattle dog genes from. Dino and his siblings are 4 months old (as of early July) and weigh approximately 10 lbs each.
If interested in Dino or any of our sweeties, please fill out the adoption application.
We are a foster-based rescue and we require that a potential adopter meets the dog(s) in the foster setting before adoption.
Thank you for considering rescue!
