Flynn, a parvovirus survivor, continues to grow, learn and gain weight. He is thought to be 8-9 weeks old and is a handsome pup. Flynn is not the first one to run to try something new, but will eventually dive in (see him at the top of the stairs in this video: https://youtu.be/p7h20-JIiXM – Flynn is the cautious one at the top). He loves belly scratches (complete with flea nibbling the human giver in gratitude and thinks he is a lap puppy, preferring to curl up and take a nap <3

The puppies are being introduced to other adult dogs (multiple breeds) and a few cats. They are learning and perfecting pottying outside and what a crate is <3

Please note that the pups will not be moved from their current foster until they ALL test negative for shedding the virus, they are microchipped and have age-appropriate vaccines. The pups are working hard on mastering “potty outside” and crating <3

UPDATE: Flynn is being released from the hospital!!! WE ARE ELATED!!!! Thank you for your love, support and donations to his care <3 He is so precious <3

UPDATE: Flynn (male puppy) and his 2 sisters have been admitted to the hospital for acute care and stabilization. They are in rough shape and thought to be only about 4-6 weeks old. They are covered in fleas and ticks and are small, dirty and thin. An IV has been placed, as well as a nasogastric tubes to decompress the stomach. They are receiving electrolyte and other nutritional support. We are praying and hoping for them to pull through this <3 Donations are appreciated.

UPDATE: We are on our way to the shelter to pick up 3 puppies; sadly, 2 more were lost last night (orange collar was among them). We have green collar (female), white collar (male) and no collar (female) that still need our help. We only know one is not doing well. They are being rushed to the same hospital that treated our F litter – please continue to share and send prayers and/or good vibrations for these lil ones.

The Beginning of the story …

The beginning of this story begins when a “box” of babies were found in a field without a momma and without any clues to where they started their young lives. They were taken to the shelter. On that day, seven beautiful innocent babies entered into the shelter and were tagged for rescue by Shepherds Without Borders. One was very sick and gained their angel wings that day. The parvo tests were negative originally negative, but the morning, another sick puppy tested positive. Another angel gained its wings the second night. They are act like they are starving and are dehydrated. Precious souls …

There are only 5 left. There are 3 females and 2 males fighting for their lives with vet care in the shelter. We are actively raising funds for medical treatment as it is so expensive to treat this terrible virus.
