Named because he's got springs for legs, this bouncy, active puppy is Tigger from the Winnie the Pooh litter. He loves his mama and enjoys spending time outside. Belly rubs are a favorite, too. Tigger is growing up in a foster home with big dogs and nice kitty cats and he has a lot of friends of all species.
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.
