This little white puppy is something special. Owl is sweet and loving. He's clever and silly. It didn't take long for his foster to realize that he was different from his siblings. Owl was born deaf! This means he sleeps hard since regular household noises don't wake him. It means that he can't hear when his siblings yip in pain to ask him to ease up on the ear nibbles so the humans have to help. It means he can really focus on a task, and it's tricky to distract and redirect him when needed. Since Owl can't hear himself, he can be quite loud at times. He'll be looking for a human who is up for training and loves a challenge. This cuddle bug makes friends easily, but he'll need someone he can rely on to keep him safe and guide him. Owl is going to make an excellent BFF!
These pups have a true rags-to-riches backstory and as a result of all the attention they have received from our team, they're growing up to be extra-loving little doggies. This litter was impounded by animal control because someone was trying to sell them for gas money, but luckily the first person the seller approached was a WCAL volunteer so we were able to get them to safety. They were sick, lethargic, and underweight. With so much TLC, five pups survived both parvovirus and giardia and now they are happy and healthy and growing up in foster homes. We've scheduled them for spay/neuter on 6/29 and will be looking for wonderful homes for each of them where they will never know such hardships again.
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 to our team that the dogs we rescue get the very best start. 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. Puppies this age cannot be left home alone all day while their people go to work. They are eating three meals a day and working on potty training, which requires regular trips to the yard.
We have no information about the parents of these puppies or their breed. It's highly likely that they are at least some sort of pit mix. Before applying to adopt, it's important to verify that this pup will be welcomed by your landlord and homeowners insurance, regardless of breed.
