A happy ending picture story

A few weeks ago I sent out an email to all my pet sitting clients about a litter of puppies that needed homes. My client Diana had contacted me about the litter, because the mother dog belonged to her son.

She wrote:
8 week old puppies, both parents are medium size mixes with excellent temperaments. Guessing that there is Shar Pei, Chow, shepherd mix (dad looks like a short coyote :) in there somewhere. They are many generations from purebred...Shouldn't get over 45 pounds. Ready to go to their new homes.  

They are weaned and eating solid food. More females than males in a litter of 11. Five have found homes. 
I'm happy to report that all of pups have found homes, and I hope they are forever homes, the kind we dream about in dog rescue. Diana and her family adopted one of the pups, and here are some pictures. I didn't think they looked much like Shar Pei when they were little, but now you can see it. 

Bandit, the new little guy will be a buddy to Cowboy, their current dog. Cowboy has been boarding with me since he was a puppy, and I always laugh when they drive up to my house. Cowboy is a big dog, and sits between his owners with his head sticking up through the sunroof. Enjoy the photos!

Adopt a homeless dog- there's nothing better! I hope the owner will get the mother dog spayed and the daddy neutered so there are no more accidental litters.
