Larry is one of MANY that we rescued from a trailer park after an urgent plea for help. Luckily, we got the pups out while young-only 6 weeks old. We have seen mom (still trying to catch) and she is either a lab or petite shepherd mix. Only about 40 lbs. Dad is unknown as no male dogs were found. The pups and moms have fended for themselves. So even water at first was a fight for with all the siblings. We are working hard to let all the pups know they do not have to fight over water and food. They are all in foster homes learning to be a pet. Getting used to other pets and kids. They will make wonderful family additions for someone wanting to rescue a puppy and willing to put the time into puppy training.
