Meet the pups! These 8 puppies were found with their Mom without anyone to care for them. Thanks to the effort of the Canyon County Animal shelter, they were rescued and fostered, this is where we come in! The 8 puppies are making themselves very comfortable at our home until they are 8 weeks old. Then, they will head back to Canyon County to get the Bob Barker treatment (if you know what I mean) and find their FURever homes, YAY! Until then, grow puppies grow!
The 8 Pup Line Up...
Brulee- Named after our favorite coffee creamer, this petite girl is such a doll! She can hold her own when wrestling with her littermates and our big dog. She is a princess at heart and loves to have access to a small crate for naps during the day.
Oakley- Little Annie Oakley! This girl is the perfect mix of a lady and adventure seeker. You can always find her halfway in a bush to get a new stick! She loves to play in the water, run around the grass and play tug-a-war. Love this girl!
Bear- Her name becomes appareant as soon as you scoop this gal up, she grunts like a little bear cub! Bear loves hanging out with our 8 month old and sleeping under the coffee table. She is such a sweetheart!
Semper- Named Semper Fi because of his brave attitude and strong build, this big pup is such a love! He is truly a tank, he has doubled in weight in 3 weeks. He loves his rope toy, is a champ in the car and loves to play with our big dog!
Nemo - He may be the smallest of the boys but has a huge heart, this little boy loves snuggling up! He is the first to run back over to their daytime pen if he is out and sit and whimper a little when he is ready to go back in a take a nap, its pretty cute! He LOVES fleece blankets.
Rocky- This little guy is playful and sweet! He is a big fan of laying on top of everyone after they fall asleep and is always up for a game of tug-a-war. He is one of my FAVORITES! Great personality.
Bedtime aka nigh-night puppies!The puppies now sleep for a 7 hour stretch in their crate (YESSS!) and have been waking up with dry blankets more often than not! They run straight out of the crate, outside and to the grass. GOOD PUPPIES!
They are ok with eating dry food now, this is such a relief as the puppies had me well trained on the art of using the food processor and cooking them turkey bacon...ALL THE TIME. Haha! I loved it. It made their day!
I have tried to stick to one word commands to keep training consistent, I am no expert but from what I have read it seems to be the best! So......here are the words they are used to
Stay (when putting one in kennel and 7 others are trying to come out lol)
and last but not least....
LOVE YOU! (ok, thats two but I tell them a lot then proceed to kiss their face off)
