Hello All!

Follow along as I share my endless adventures as a foster for my local county dog shelter. I get fosters in on a regular basis, so sit back and enjoy as I share many cute puppy photos and stories of the broken and scarred being restored and healed. Fostering is both rewarding and fulfilling, heartbreaking and heartwarming. It is truly an experience like no other.

Learning Early

I think the most common question I get asked, “can a puppy learn at such a young age?”, my answer always is, absolutely yes! Not only can they, but they should. Not only does it help grow and mature their minds, and create a solid base to work with, it also does not waste the potential to start them off on training they are very much capable of learning. Marian is just 7 weeks, but already has learned the concept of “stay”, sit, waiting before exiting doors, giving eye contact, being patient in a crate, knowing that biting isn’t okay, and going outside to potty. Never underestimate what they can learn, seize the moment and help them grow into amazing puppies!

7 Weeks Old

Happy 7 weeks! Sorry for the short description, not feeling well today. I will update in more detail on what they are up to in the near future. Cannot believe how time flies, only two more weeks with my lovely babies, and only a week-ish with Marian before she goes home to her family. Growing like crazy and enjoying learning and exploring!

6 Weeks Old

Happy 6 Weeks Old! Cannot believe how fast time passes. The puppies are going outside to potty full time now, their crates for feeding were setup today, and they continue to get better with sit, eye contact, and waiting. Tomorrow they will start short leashed walks and official command training, we will be working on sit first. They continue to love exploring the house, new items and the large backyard. It’s wonderful to watch them learn and take on the world fearlessly!

Abbie: 8.15lbs She is quiet and cautious, preferring to allow her siblings to lead. Once she gets settled, she is ready to take on anything!

Abbie

Baron: 9.11lbs He is friendly, and even though he is one of the biggest, loves to be a lap dog! He can be quite vocal when he wants, but generally is a very quiet puppy

Baron

Courage: 10.11lbs He is the biggest, and also the most independent, almost always found off doing his own thing. Very adventurous and ready to explore new things

Courage

Crusader: 9.6lbs He is a people pup, always wiggling and giving everyone kisses! Playful and adventurous, but more of a follower

Crusader

Ella: 9.4lbs Extreme extrovert alert! This girl loves everyone and everything and makes no attempt to hide her enthusiasm for every second of life. She is playful, friendly, and treats life as one big party!

Ella

Knight: 9.2lbs Sweet as pie, and so gentle and calm. A big teddy bear inside and out. He spends a lot of his time sleeping, and when awake he is sitting quietly next to someone or getting those puppy eyes going because he is the master of puppy eyes!

Knight

Mace: 8.15lbs What a character this boy is! He is extremely talkative, goofy, and such a joy to be around!

Mace

Marian: 9lbs It doesn’t get any sweeter or better than this girl! She is the sweetest, best behaved puppy I have ever had, and by far one of the cutest. I call her my little angel because she is just that amazing! She makes my heart melt with her sweet, kind nature

Marian

Queen: 9.2lbs Sweet, playful, and gentle. Queen is has such a loving nature and is so kind hearted. Loves everyone she meets and is always ready to give kisses
