4 mo old yellow male puppy, 27 lbs
Sammy is a darling, sweet, full of the devil puppy. He came to MBLRR a month ago, the last of a litter of puppies near Bakersfield. Unfortunately the back yard breeders did not take good care of him and within three days of his coming to MBLRR, he became very ill with parvo. Parvo is a deadly disease but if caught early and treated aggressively, it can be cured. Sammy spent a week at our wonderful emergency clinic here in Monterey (Pet Specialists) where he received 24 hour care. It was touch and go for awhile, but Sammy pulled through. He’s been at his foster home recovering and is now back to full health. He should have no future health issues because of having parvo. Sammy is now almost fully house trained. He sleeps in a crate at night in the bedroom and is now sleeping through the night. He loves toys and loves to play with the foster’s 4 year old female yellow lab. He loves other dogs and we definitely want Sammy to go to a home with another playful dog. He chews, as all puppies do, so will need appropriate chew toys. He loves beef bones and nylon dinos (we have one we can send home with him). And he adores all toys with squeakers. He’s learned to play tug with the foster’s lab and loves it. He’s not done any leash walking so will need work on that, but he’s a smart little guy and we know he’ll pick up any training quickly. He does jump up occasionally and will sometimes tug on your pant leg, but is learning that neither are acceptable activities. He’s so darned cute, you just can’t be mad at him even for a minute. Sammy has been through a lot, but he’s a trooper and such a snuggle bug. We will be looking for a family with another young dog who is around most of the day. He’s a mischievous puppy for sure, but so much fun.
I already have family lined up for Sammy. They will be picking him up on Saturday. Thanks to all who called.
