With a birthday on July 4th, these clever pups are sweet and snuggly. Mom is a boxer mix about 35 lb. We aren't sure who dad is.
We've included a picture of mom. She doesn't have the typical boxer face and is small at about 35 lb. We thought boxer was the best description, but it's probably anyone's guess on what mix of breeds she is.
Parrot is the last of his litter, and quietly affectionate. He's house-trained, if kept on a regular schedule (currently every other hour). He's comfy and content when he has to sleep in a 42" crate. This will allow him to sprawl. He shows respect for his crate mat, if given things to chew on. He's leash-savvy and enjoys sniff walks as well as running in the yard with his doggy friends. This is his preferred play-style. He has recently become big brother to a 7 week old foster puppy and is being very gentle with her.
Parrot will bark at the cats in his foster home, but his intention is to get them to run. He ignores them if they're rubbing on him and tries to avoid the cat that antagonizes the foster dogs. He's nervous in the car, but will lay on the passenger seat if the driver will pet him.
April 2020: We are not holding public adoption events at this time. Qualified families are being invited to appointments to meet specific dogs. There are currently no opportunities to view multiple dogs and adoption events aren't being held at Tractor Supply in Lenoir.
Whether dogs / puppies come in as strays or owner surrenders, we usually have to make our best guess as to birthdate and breed.
If adopted into a home with other animals, particularly cats, your new pet should be crated or secured when you're not available to supervise to insure a harmonious relationship.
A vet reference is required to confirm responsible pet ownership. We suggest first time pet owners look for an adult dog for companionship and to gain experience through another rescue or your local government-run animal control..
Adoption fee covers two vaccinations plus spay / neuter if using our local low-cost spay/neuter clinic (overnight stay required) and surgery occurs as agreed upon in the adoption contract. Convenience fee equal to refundable spay/neuter deposit may be added if using our veterinarian. Additional fees for 3rd puppy vaccination, refundable spay/neuter deposit, etc. may apply.
We are an all-volunteer, foster-based rescue. We receive no funding from agencies. Available animals can be seen most Saturdays at Tractor Supply in Lenoir from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. We recommend interested parties contact us to pre-qualify for adoption so their new furry family can go home once paperwork is complete. Fees are required in cash. For more information on our organization, our website is www.petpartnersrescue.org.
