I received the following email last week --

"Is there anyone that you know of that can foster this little family? My friend Sandy, was called about these one week old Blue Pitty babies and their momma and daddy.

Apparently the owner was arrested for drug related issues and the dogs ended up in the pound where they have five days.... and the shelter will not adopt out mothers that are nursing with pups so their only chance is rescue.

According to what has been passed on but the shelter the parents are of good temperament.

Transport chould likely be arranged -- please let me know what you think Eric"

Well, IMAGINE the difference this drug-bust will make for these babies -- going from an uncertain fate, to one of placement in great homes -- !!

Word has it, this back-yard-breeder bred his "blues" constantly, with clients the likes of the Williams sisters -- !!

Anyway, enough of the folklore -- below are the babies -- !!

The family at 8 weeks -- !!

Well, here's Tiff, the babies momma --

-- WHAT A BEAUTY!

:D

Tiff is a great girl, and she needs to be placed in an only dog home --


-- next, Akira --

-- and Dallas, with foster Kari -- !! --

-- ms. lennox --

-- and finally, mr. showstopper, Malcolm --

-- GREAT PICTURES, TIM!

 

These babes are worthy of great homes, as is their momma, Tiff!!

Here's where you come in -- the responsible, committed adopter!

If you're interested in adopting, click on the logo above to fill out an adoption application. The foster home locations are listed with each pup. If you are interested in visiting with the pups (AND you have submitted an application), please email me at eric@spbr.org to make arrangements -- It will be sometime in September before they're ready to come out and see the world! Also, if you have a better idea on the breed-identifications, please email them to me!

 

Things I like in an application:

- Adult adopters, ready to be adults. People aware of the responsibility of a puppy, and aware this puppy will become an a medium-sized dog, with its own temperament and personality. Adult adopters who are ready for a 15 year commitment. This puppy does not have a depreciating "useful life" that is over when it becomes an adult -- instead, this dog's whole life is useful -- !!
 
- Adopters who treat their newest addition like a member of the family, realizing that this isn't a "dog in the box" and that its little life must be encouraged to go the right path and that obedience, socialization and training will get her there -- !!
 

- Financial commitment. Adopters willing to spend money on their new investment, including premium foods (like Candidae, Wellness, Nutro or raw food), plus adopters who will invest in pet insurance or a "dog fund", lest vetting be required, which may get expensive.

The adoption fee is $275 per dog. This is reasonable, considering the premium services that each pup gets. Each dog, before placement, is examined by a licensed veterinarian, spayed or neutered, wormed with premium wormer, given vaccinations on a regular basis (not just a one-shot deal), microchipped with a premium Home Again chip (made by Schering -Plough), fed premium puppy food (not 'Ol Roy, or some other filler-laden junk) and has spent it's puppy fosterhood in a wonderful, attentive, CLEAN environment. There are 4-5 homes fostering these babies, and that is a LOT of logistics, driving, CARE, etc. -- but it's entirely worth it! Also, each puppy is accompanied by a personal home visit to YOUR home at placement, to ensure they're going to have the life of a king or queen -- !! If the home visit doesn't pass, puppy doesn't stay. This isn't some parking-lot-of-a-pet-store adoption scheme, instead, it's the highest-quality service I can provide for these young souls, as they journey off in to their lives.

 
- Smart and informed adopters, who research this breed and who realize that these pups are not for everyone. Pit bull temperament can be Googled, and a great start can be found here.

 

Things I shy away from in an application:

- Youth -- sorry kids -- this is a living being, not an iPod!! Young peoples' lives change a lot, and the first thing to get dumped is usually the dog, whether it be on their parents, a friend, etc., who are oftentimes ill-equipped and disinterested in this four-legged life -- then, the dumping or neglect begins.
- Renters. I get calls all the time saying, "Please take my dog -- I moved in to an apartment that doesn't allow them." Ummm -- did you fall asleep in an apartment that allowed them, and then wake up at a new address, in an apartment that doesn't allow them? This isn't magic here -- it's responsibility, and dogs come first. Please don't lie on the application, either -- this will show up in the home-visit -- !!

- Multi-dog households. While I love having many pit bulls, quite a few people aren't ready for the commitment and responsibility it takes to sometimes crate their dogs, rotate them out of the crates and generally own them responsibly. When that happens, I get calls saying, "I have to get rid of one of my dogs ASAP." I can never understand why these people think their lack of planning is all of the sudden my emergency.

- Busy households. Sure, puppies are cute, and they're cuddly, and after they're bathed, they smell nice. But when they grow up in to dogs, and the busy household moves on to their new obsession, the dog, now needing obedience, love and affection, is dumped in the suburban sense. The dog may even live "out on the porch" -- people mention that to me like it's acceptable -- dogs are social beings, and will not flourish in situations of neglect!
 
- People that call me sounding like gangsters. It happens a lot -- and they never want a spayed or neutered dog. Sorry folks -- this is rescue, not a puppy mill, nor the "syndicate". Also, please don't bother me with requests for "papers" -- last time I checked, no people I knew had "papers", and that didn't make them any less a "person" -- !!
