PUPPIES!!! Squishy, puppy breath, crying, screaming, pooping, peeing, huggies, kisses, and non-stop cuddles. Ah, could it get any better than puppies?

These beautiful puppies had their second chance given to them when a Louisiana shelter worker could not watch pregnant moms weeks from giving birth being spayed, and the pups aborted.

She took the moms into her home to allow them to have and raise their babies. Lucky to avoid having such an invasive surgery.  The pups from a few different moms and pops, and at 9 weeks of age they were sent to Vancouver to find their forever homes.

The adoption rate in Louisiana is 4% per year.  150 dogs, pups and adults are euthanized or gassed in one week at only one shelter. Pups are euthanized because the shelters cannot avoid them getting sick.   We wish we could save them all, but we feel even helping in small ways makes a difference.

If you feel you are ready to give your love to a new pup, and are aware of what puppies need in the way of healthcare, nutrition and training, please email us for an adoption application.  Home visits are mandatory.  Adoption fee for Louisiana puppies $495 with spay/neuter, 1st, 2nd and 3rd vaccinations, tattoo, deworming, flea treatment.

    OK, OK, I know, I am running out of name ideas LMAO> Everyone said let’s name her SPOT – oh come on, I am not naming her spot cause she has spots.

    Besides, so far the most interest is in Pickle – you think that’s cause I named her Pickle or that she is so darned cute?

    Hello! The puppies are adorable!!! Dude’s 9 year old human sister suggested that instead of Pickle she should be called “Sparkle” for the beautiful sparkle in her eye. What does everyone think of the name Sparkle?
    Dude say’s hello to everyone…he is doing fantastic and is really enjoying his life of leisure in our home!

    I took Pickle to work with me, and well, Pickle was the talk of the clinic. And a co worker of mine said that it must be her dog cause she was going to name her next pet Pickle, we laughed.

    I like Sparkle, that is a great name too…

    But I agree with Jenn, yes I am going to be stubborn LOL….

    Pickle for Pickle is good, and of course new home, new name..

    Well we have had Pickle for almost 2 years now and we didn’t change her name. She is silly and loving and suits her name. I’m so glad she’s in her “forever home” with our family.
