River is 4 weeks old and has 3 brothers and 1 sister. His momma is Molly 10-058. They arrived from Missouri on Saturday and were welcomed to our crazy pack of dogs and people! Winston, resident dog, is loving the pups. Buster 09-298, my other foster, is not quite sure what to make of them.
They arrived very healthy and shall we say, chubby! They range in weight from 8-9 lbs, which is quite large for 4 weeks. They’re already eating soft puppy food and still enjoy nursing from momma. I think she will start weaning them in the next couple weeks or so. The pups will receive their first vaccinations in 3 weeks and then the following week (end of March) they will be spayed or neutered.
Did I say how adorable they are?? Momma appears to be all Golden. Dad is said to be part black lab and coonhound mix. What a combination! They have received many visitors and have enjoyed the attention. Thank you everyone who has donated newspaper, paper towels and blankets to them. We sure go through a lot of paper products!
More info to follow later this week. They will not be able to go to their forever homes until after their spay/neuters, which would make them available to “go home” the first week in April.
