Hi! My Name Is Twister

We're happy to tell you that Twister has a new furever home.
Please visit our Available Dogs Page to see the pups currently available.
Barks and Meows Rescue introduces Twister.  Shee is one of 8 pups born to Mommy Genny on Feb 17, 2020 (Family Day).  There are 3 males and 5 females in the litter.  Mommy Genny was pulled by our Rescue already pregnant.  She is a Foxhound and we believe Dad is most likely a Heeler/Border Collie mix.  This litter will be medium size dogs when fully grown, under 60lbs.    Twister is a blue tick mix.  She has both coarse and soft fur, taking after both parents.  She is very quiet and focused.  She is shy but you can tell she is always watching and evaluating what is going on.  The Blueticks always require a great amount of socialization so she will need to be handled and socialized a lot to make her a well-rounded adult. Giving her lots of hugs makes her feel safe.  She will bond with whoever handles her the most.  This litter is a very quiet one.  The reason is that Mommy Genny is very timid and quiet.  They always take on the traits of their Mom.  Mommy Genny fed continue to help feed them right up until they were 6 weeks old.  Currently, they are on Royal Canin Veterinarian Development formula.  They receive pumpkin in their diet twice daily.  Feedings occur 4 times a day.  They are paper trained and we found that using newspapers does best as they were eating the pee-pee pads!  They now have full reign of the whelping room and tend to continue to sleep together in the whelping box.  They love playing with all sorts of toys and have heeler in them. They all tend to nip at your heels which is not a hound dog trait. They have been thoroughly dewormed every two weeks since birth. On Tuesday, April 14, the litter will have their first set of vaccines, including Bordetella. They will have their health exam and will be checked for heart murmurs and hernias. They will be ready to go to their new homes after that date. Due to the COVID 19 pandemic, our adoption meet and greet process has changed. The specifics of the process will be discussed with the approved applicants.   A fully fenced yard and a Veterinarian History of Compliance is mandatory to apply for Twister. Please do state your first, second and third choices of pups on the application.
