So I’m fostering puppies for DFW Rescue Me again. Black labs (maybe mixes? their mom looks to be a pure bred, but dad’s a deadbeat so we don’t know), who are now about 10 weeks and growing like weeds. I have a boy (Jet – all black) and a girl (Rosie – white markings). If they are mixes, I don’t know what with – they’re very labby.
This hasn’t been the easiest fostering stint – I briefly had four of these guys while a different foster could be found for two… and they had “upset” tummies. Four growing lab puppies with uneasy digestive tracts = not fun for me. I was actually awakened early one morning by smell…. my new least favorite way to wake up. Luckily though all those issues have been resolved.
It’s funny – the other sets of puppies I have fostered have had very different and distinct personalities. These guys are very similar to each other (when I had all four, I pretty much had to pick them up to tell which was which). They’re smart – not housebroken yet, but they VERY quickly learned to sit for their food (they are little piglets so food is definitely a very strong motivator!).
They’re typical, goofy lab babies – though *relatively* calm. Big fans of toys though.
And each other. Both are pretty confident and will follow Bear – and Belle – around. Though neither has figured out how to actually play with Bear.
They’re available for adoption (they’ll be ready for their new homes in about 1 1/2 weeks) – if you, or someone you know, is interested, please fill out the application at DFW Rescue Me’s website. I expect them both to find homes very, very quickly!
