Macy had a sad story of being dropped off in a night box at a shelter – prego. She whelped at the shelter. There are six babies. Four girls (including the yellow) and 2 boys. Macy is finally gaining some weight – she was emaciated so we picked up some high calorie puppy food and her bowl is always filled immediately after she empties it. She would not walk when our transport team delivered them to the designated puppy mom. Macy was deathly afraid, so they had to carry her in. What a change 10 days makes. She is now taking breaks and coming up into the general population of resident Goldens. I can tell she is happy now as when she wags her tail, her whole body wiggles.
Safe Harbor Lab Rescue will be putting the puppys and Macy up for adoption. GRRR is just lending a hand as Safe Harbor Lab Rescue was overflowing at the time. SHLR is not going to put them on their website until they are about 4 – 6 weeks. So watch for these puppies to show up once our team has prepared them for life on their own.
A special thanks to our puppy volunteer. We have had so many puppy rescues and it seems that when one batch of puppies leaves, another one comes in. Anyone that can care for so many puppies and homeless moms is serving above and beyond the call of duty. It is also great that the rescues can work together so well for everyone's benefit.
Don't you just love a puppy story with a happy ending?
