Meet Kessel

3/4/2021
Kessel is an approximately 8 week old mixed breed pup that currently weighs 7 pounds. Kessel is one of a litter of 10 pups born to a beautiful pointer mix momma that weighs about 65 pounds. We anticipate that Kessel will be similar in size. Kessel is a very sweet and very smart boy. He gets along well with everyone and loves kids. He still has those sharp puppy teeth but is learning to play bite the toys and not human hands. He isn't quite there yet.

Kessel has a little bit of an awkward gait and stance because he has a bad break that occurred early in life (probably being stepped on by mama) and will need to have that leg amputated. Unfortunately, because puppy bones grow so rapidly, they are not surgical candidates at this stage and the leg will just heal incorrectly and never be surgical. Because it causes pain and mobility issues, it has to go. Our hope is that he can manage until 16 weeks and have surgery then. It is safer for him when it comes to anesthesia to be older, but also, it's better for his whole body if he can grow a bit more. We are really hoping that there is a local adopter interested in him willing to take on the foster role until he can have surgery. I hate for him to miss out on a potential family and I hate for a potential family to miss out on him during this precious stage of puppyhood. He is such a sweet sweet boy.

Kessel is up to date on shots and preventatives and is microchipped. He will be adopted with a neuter contract due to his size and age. Kessel's adoption fee is $250 plus any additional donation you feel appropriate. Our adoption fee is set to a level to make adoptions happen. They do not cover our costs. Thank you for your generosity and interest in our dogs!

All dogs adopted locally through SGDR receive a free six-week session of obedience classes and a lifetime of behavior support through our Project REWARD program with trainer Charlotte Blake.

You must have an approved application before being able to visit a dog. Visit our website below for an adoption application https://www.snootygiggles.com/dog-application/

If you expect to leave the dog alone for long periods of time, please do not consider adopting a puppy. Puppies need lots of attention and companionship. Thanks.

All known information about the animal is listed above. We do our best to give accurate information, but most of our dogs are rescues and do not come with a known history.
