Puppies Galore

Last Saturday the rescue group I volunteer with had two puppies adopted (Freckles and Buddy).  In the same day, we also took in ten new puppies, not including my two five-month-old foster pups.  Sadly, there is no shortage of puppies needing homes in our area.  On the plus side, this means I get to post lots of puppy pictures today!

This happy puppy is Daisy.  At the same time as I was talking to Freckles' adopters about him, I noticed one of our other volunteers talking to a guy with another puppy.  Next thing I knew, the guy was signing the puppy over to us.  I didn't hear the whole story, but I am glad that one of our foster families was able to fit in this sweet girl and she'll never have to know what her life would have become if she'd ended up at a shelter.


The next nine puppies are all from the same litter.  And one foster mom took home all nine of them.  The same foster mom that is still fostering the infamous wall-eating dog Duke.  She's crazy, I tell you, and I'm so glad that she is, because these puppies were going to be shot if we couldn't take them. 

I love these puppies.  They're having a blast in their foster home - running all over and throwing wild parties.  These are nine very lucky puppies to end up where they did, thanks to many different volunteers who made calls on their behalf, and transported them to us, and thanks to a wonderful, Most Awesome foster mom who does more than I can imagine to save dogs and give them a happy life while they're waiting to be adopted.  Hopefully we'll have lots of people wanting to adopt some very cute puppies very soon!

What beautiful puppies...if I live to be 1000 I will never understand how someone can get a pet then all of a sudden think it is disposable!!!
This just burns me up. It is very scary. I understand sometimes there are financial matters and thankfully the guy was man enough to bring the puppy to a loving environment...but so many folks get trophy animals w/o any clue on what is required....ok I'm jumping off my soap box,

Oh they are all so cute and we are so glad that your group took them all. Seriously - shot if they didn't take them - what kind of person does that.

We hope they all find wonderful forever homes soon!

They are all so very much adorable and sweet beyond all words! I am SO happy they are all safe and sound and will have happy lives with their Most Perfect Homes.

My Angel Donna lives way out in the country and she's all the time saving little puppies from meeting some most terrible fate because peoples don't do the right thing and make sure their doggies don't have puppies. It's very much sad but I'm oh-so-grateful that there are people like you and my Angel Donna and that other crazy fostermom in the world to take care of us!

Oh my goodness! To take in 9 puppies at once! OI! We fostered 4 5 day old puppies (Darwin and some of her siblings) for a couple weeks and that was a handful! I can't imagine fostering 9 and trying to potty train them all! Kudos to you both!
