Barks and Recreation: One Last Ride

Let A Puppy Rescue You.

In October a homeless and pregnant beagle found me while I was walking my two dogs around our farm. I invited her to live with us. In November she delivered eight adorable puppies. The puppies are now two months old, and ready to find forever-homes. I want to give everyone an update and flashback of their growth.

Below you will find important personality information for each puppy. If you are considering adoption, please read the puppy information so you can find a puppy that fits your lifestyle. You will also find three progress photos for each puppy; a photo at two weeks old, one month old, and two months old.

The Mother

Here is a delightful photo series of the mother dog; from the day I found her, till now. Many people have asked about the father dog: I don’t know anything about him. But the mother dog is kind, compassionate, and appreciative. Perhaps these photos will show you that.

The day she found me (October 2018)…

Hello, My Name Is…

Many people have asked about the temporary names the puppies have. I wanted the puppies to have names during their time with me, so I named them after characters from Parks and Recreation. These names are temporary, and can be changed. The title of this blog post; “One Last Ride”, is an homage to the series finale title of Parks and Recreation. This is my series finale with these amazing puppies. I’ve sincerely loved getting to know these puppies, saying “goodbye” will be difficult, but I know they will spread joy to the humans that they rescue.

Curtain Call

If you are interested in adopting a puppy, please let me know. I will be starting the interview and meet-and-greet process on Saturday, January, 12th. I’m excited to see what human each puppy choses to rescue. 

If you want to read more about the puppies when they were newborns, please visit my previous post: Meet The Puppies. If you want to see more photos and read information about the puppies when they were one-month-old, please visit my post: Puppy Update.
