She is a busy puppy girl running and playing and chasing all the other foster kids here. She is high energy and just a darling baby girl. Her mange doesn't seem as bad as her brother and sister's but she does have it on her face.

Noreen has Demodectic Mange. It's not contagious to humans or other animals, but as you can see it's not too pretty. I'm sure the pups are feeling very uncomfortable. We do have to treat them with a special bath and topical cream for about a month. They will be good as new and their hair will grow back. This will just be a distant memory a month from now.

Puppy Adoption Policies:
* We do not place puppies in homes where they will be left alone all day. Part-time employment is ok. Puppies, like babies, need lots of attention, socialization, and cuddles. We do not feel that it is humane to leave them in a crate for 8-10 hours at a time.

* An installed fence is mandatory if there are children in the home. If you need an electric fence - The Pet Stop company link is below.

The fence must be installed before an adoption application will be processed. There are no exceptions to this.

* We will only adopt puppies to people who have had PRIOR personal puppy raising experience. This policy is due to people wanting puppies, then finding out just how much work they really are, and then returning them or worse, dropping them off to shelters.

* We also can no longer adopt puppies/dogs to people who have children under (8) years old UNLESS the children have been raised with puppies and dogs all their lives. This policy has been made necessary due to having our pups returned after the novelty wore off. We're told it's because they have been "nipping" at the kids. That is what puppies do and we need to find our pups homes with people who understand and expect this as "normal" behavior.

We would like to introduce our three new "shelter pups" that just arrived from our favorite shelter in WV, Wetzel.

This adorable cotton ball is Noreen. She has a very thick, soft coat and is going to be very large. She may go to 70-75 pounds full grown. We will have to recommend that she will only be adopted to a family who is experienced with a dog with a thick coat and heavy shedding.
