Howllo Fellow Hound Lovers. The cases just poor in. Here is an e-mail I received this morning from Dawn of the West (BaRNI at Daphneyland).

The call came in this morning.
A 2 year old female who has been bred two times by a previous owner – who moved and rehomed the “stud” but couldn’t find a home for the female, so an all breed rescue took her in.
Problem. She is 7 weeks pregnant.
Her name is Roxie, and she arrives by private plane courtesy of the Alsups from the Modesto area on Friday afternoon…..


Anyone interested in fostering a Mom, whelping the puppies in about 2 weeks and then giving up 10 weeks of your summer to weaning???? And you thought we asked too much already!!!!

Please meet “Roxie” 2 years of age and about to have her third litter of puppies.
The photo below is of Roxie and the “Dad” to her litter…….

Interested parties please contact us here at the ranch.
We will be putting together a list of everything we’ll need to whelp this litter – stay tuned….

Well, there you have it. Yet another needy case. Remember, Dawn told us that July is the worst month of the year for dumped hounds and these do not even fit into that scenario. July is when all the Holiday pups get the boot because of various reasons including family vacations, moving, and the kids go to camp.

Man O Man, I wish I could win that lottery.

More Later…Cat, Chaps and Emma
