Nutella is going to be someone's best friend! She's an adventurous chocolate pup who loves to explore, cuddle and play hard. Nutella wants to befriend all the dogs and cats she meets (even if they aren't interested). She can be vocal when she needs attention or is hungry but she also does well at entertaining herself with a toy or while exploring the yard.
Left in a cardboard box in front of a grocery store, this litter is working on getting healthy & growing up in a WCAL foster home. These pups are scheduled to be spayed and ready to go home with their new families on 2/23. They are eating three meals a day and working on their potty training. Puppies this age cannot be left home alone for more than a few hours at a time. They sleep through the night in a crate attached to an xpen where they can't get into trouble while unattended. This litter is loving, playful, eager little babies.
We ask that all WCAL puppy adopters commit to attending a 4 week-long reward-based training class with their new puppy (we'll help you find a qualified, dog-friendly trainer near you). This is the best way we know how to help you bond with your new pup, give you access to current training techniques and ensure that your new dog becomes a well-rounded member of society. We believe in being proactive and know from experience that the best time to train a dog is NOW! It's important that the dogs we rescue get the very best start to reduce their chances of being surrendered to a shelter or banished to a backyard as an unruly, untrained adolescent who is no longer cute and small. If you don't have time to attend training classes with a puppy, please consider choosing an adult dog or waiting to adopt until your schedule is more flexible.
While we can guess that this puppy will grow to be a LARGE dog, we have not met either parent and do not know the specific breed mix. The side of the box they were found in said "A.P.B.T." (American Pit Bull Terrier) and we have no reason to doubt they are at least part pit bull. Before applying to adopt, it's important to verify that this pup will be welcomed by your landlord and homeowners insurance, regardless of breed.
