FOSTERING LOCAL IN NEW ENGLAND!!
Gladys was one of 10 puppies born to mom Sasha, who was found very pregnant hanging out with we think Daddy but can’t be sure. All the pups were raised with their mom since birth which is always a great start to their lives. And Sasha was just the best mama to all of them!!!
Gladys Is absolutely flourishing in her foster home. Her foster mom is so smitten. She sleeps through the night in her crate, and she keeps her crate clean. Gladys is doing a great job with house training!
Gladys knows her basic commands like “sit” and is working on “down”. This girl is both very smart and also treat oriented so she picks up on training so well.
Gladys would be great as an only dog with dog friends or as little sister to another pal in her household.
This precious girl truly would be a great addition to any family!!!! Apply now before it is too late!

Don’t forget, if you’re considering a puppy… think about it really hard before committing - they are adorable and fun and hilarious and exhausting and busybodies who require lots of time and care and affection to grow up to be great dogs. Do you work long hours? What is your plan - puppies cannot be crated for more than a few hours at a time. Speaking of crating, are you prepared to work on training them? Do you have children? Are they really ready for a dog that will undoubtedly nip and chase them until trained. Just some things to think about.
PLEASE - Think long and hard before adopting a puppy - consider the lifestyle change this puppy will come with - he cannot be crated for more than 3-4 hours at a time until he’s older, puppy proofing your home will be necessary, puppies scratch and nip so if you have small children, can they handle this?? Training will be so important in this puppy’s life, do you have the time??
Please review this checklist for socializing puppies - do you have the time - ask yourself before adopting.
