Snowfall and babies

What happens when Frost and Snow mix?
You get lots of beautiful snowflakes of course! 
Snowfall (mom) and Frost were both dumped at a shelter for chasing and catching a kitten. She was pregnant and delivered her babies at the shelter. They are very young parents with alot of personality, high prey drive and energy. Thanks to our partners at Helping Herders we were able to rescue mom and her babies. They took in dad. 
Each beautiful little snowflake (puppy) is unique in looks and temperament. They are only 3 weeks old today so it will be a few weeks before we know their personalities. 
We will post more pics and update

She is still very shy with new people but usually will take food. Jewell has learned to walk on a leash but still needs coaxing in new situations. Jewell has been great with her foster dog siblings and is very easy to live with.

Kona

1/13/18

Kona is a 3 yr old spayed female Aussie mix with 2 blue eyes, who has decided that she doesn't like another female dog in her household and their owner is afraid that injuries may result.  She does get along with all the other dogs, all sizes, and her owner thinks she probably would do best in a home with another (male) dog as she really like to play rough and rowdy with them.  She herds the other dogs when they chase the ball, but not interested in chasing the ball herself, is excellent with the chickens, geese, turkeys and goats and great with cats.  Owner feels she would excel in agility or herding other animals.  Kona is housebroken and crate trained, hasn't really been around kids, the limited time she has been, she's been leery and avoiding them, so best no kids in the home for her.  She can also be leery of men at first, reserved at meeting strangers in general.  If you are interested in Kona, please contact Debbie: dcb1268@gmail.com  (Lassen County, Nevada, about 50 miles north of Reno)

Teddy

                                      

 

"Teddy is 8 years old, and 45lbs.  He has been living alone with my mother-in-law and her husband who have severely neglected him since my wife moved out 3 years ago.  Both are addicts, and after having neglected Teddy for several years, have decided they no longer want to keep him at all, and began talking about having him euthanized last week.   He was originally purchased from a pet store and listed as an Aussie Mix, although we are not quite sure mixed with what.  We have had a friend of mine, who actually trains Aussies, take a look at him and spend some time with him and she thinks he is mixed with Saint Bernard.  This trainer also said that Teddy with need a bit of training, as he has obvious separation anxiety, and has shown aggression towards smaller dogs.  She is confident however that with training he can be corrected away from these behaviors.  My wife and I have been walking him every night for the past two weeks, in an effort to get him comfortable around people and other dogs again, and there have been no major problems.  We decided to have him groomed as we hoped it would lessen the pain he was in from all of the matted and tangled fur.  The groomer informed us that he was quite infested with flees, and he seems to be significantly happy now that he has been shaven.  My wife and I both love Teddy, but with our current living situation, and the fact that we already have two small dogs, we just can not take him into our home at this time.  We have reached out to a few other people and rescue groups, but we are desperately looking for a good home for him where he will be loved and cherished for the beautiful animal that he is."  If anyone is able to help Teddy, please contact Eden @ 626 472 4442  (LA/Glendora area)
