Barks and Meows Rescue introduces Blondie. She was one of 9 puppies surrendered to multiple Rescues. The father of the litter is now neutered another Rescue is spaying the Mom. They are American Bulldog mixes and may end up being 60 lbs plus when fully grown. The parents weigh 37-40 kg They all have short hair coats. They were born on December 8, National Brownie Day thus are named after types of Brownies.
Barks and Meows Rescue took in 4 puppies in this litter. As of February 3rd, Blondie is the smallest in the litter weighing 4.1 kg. She is so very sweet and is a follower not a leader. She follows her siblings everywhere and is always with at least one of them snuggling. Blondie has beautiful blue eyes and a light brown with a white coat. She loves rope toys and squeaky toys. She enjoys playing with his siblings and the odd time gets the better of one or two. She loves to be held and is very affectionate. Pick this litter up and their tails never stop wagging.
This litter is very smart and learns quickly. They know the routine in their foster home but do not get out of sorts if something changes at a moment's notice. They sleep, 7 hours in an open crate or on a Karunda Bed. They tend to get warm very easily, so they do not like too much bedding. They are all very solid, like little tanks. They are paper trained and are learning to go outside, weather cooperating. They love to play and lay on the adult dogs. They are very good at reading the "cues" from the other dogs. These cuties, are fed 3 times daily and are on Performatrin Small Breed formula with chicken. This breed mix tends to be allergic to Chicken, but this formula doesn't bother them. In a few weeks, they will be placed on a lamb and rice formula that will not be specifically for small breeds.
The ideal home for this litter is one where the family is familiar with the Bully Breed traits and needs. They will be very strong when fully grown but also very loyal to all the members of the home. The family that adopts these pups, must sign a contract that stipulates that they will work with group training classes from the get-go. This breed is crucial for socialization with people and other dogs. The family must be willing to spay and neuter them at 6 months of age, with no exceptions, at our expense, at the West Lorne Animal Clinic. This breed mix requires a lot of exercise and mental stimulation. They will not be couch potatoes.
On February 3rd, they had their first set of vaccines, including Bordetella, were microchipped, and provided Nexguard Spectra. They have been dewormed with Panacur as well. Blondie weighed 4.1 kg.
UPDATE: Mar 2 second set of vaccines done. She weighed 7.8 kg.
A fully fenced yard, a minimum of 5 feet high is mandatory to apply for our Blondie. A medium to large resident dog in the home may be considered but it must be a male.
