Barks and Meows Rescue introduces Turtle. She is one of 9 puppies born to Mommy Molly on Nov 4. There are 6 girls and 3 boys in this litter. Mommy Molly is a heeler/lab and we have no idea of the father's breed as she was found already pregnant in the shelter. Molly weighs 34 lbs. We expect this litter to be between 35-40lbs when fully grown. They will be a busy bunch as they age due to the heeler mix in them.
This litter is much smaller than Mommy Ellie's litter. They all have beautiful and distinctive heeler markings on their bodies. Turtle has longer ears than her littermates and always looks like he is smiling. She has 4 spotted paws and green eyes. Her hair coat will be medium length, They are all excellent in their bath and having their nails done. They ride well crated in the vehicle.
Turtle is such an adorable gal. You just cannot pass by without picking up and kissing this sweetheart. This litter loves to be held and they hug you right back. They play very nicely together. These pups enjoy their toys; squeaky and stuffed ones are their favourites. They are fed Royal Canin Small breed Puppy food 4 times daily and have done well on it. As they get larger they should switch to their medium breed size brand. This litter is paper trained.
On December 30th, the litter received an excellent bill of health. They had their first set of vaccines, including Bordetella, and were microchipped. Turtle weighed 4.01 kg at 8 weeks of age. As always Barks and Meows will pay for their spay and neuter at 6 months of age at West Lorne Animal Hospital.
A fully fenced yard or farm is mandatory to apply for this litter.
