Baby Ember is just approx. 3 ½ months old- found as a stray in Memphis she went to the Memphis Animal Shelter on the thin side and covered in demodex manage (not contagious); she had a very bad skin infection as well but as usually was still so loving and thrilled to be with her new foster family it was just amazing.
She’s now having antibiotics and treatment the preventatives for her mange which usually start to work right away. Her gorgeous coat will soon make an appearance and she will start feeling well very soon!!
Her foster family consists of two adults and several children and dogs and she’s enjoying them all. She’s not doing too much right now while she heals but she’s loving the attention.
Ember is now approximately 3 ½ months old and is 20 lbs so she will be expected to be in the 75 lb range as an adult. We are so glad she’s with a family who will teach her manners and keep her socialized as she grows as she’s not going to be small dog.
She will be able to travel from the south once her coat starts to come in and her skin infection clears. She will not be able to be spayed until she is 6 months old at least and we may wait a bit longer to make sure her immune system is in great shape [see below for details].
Her life may not have started out so great but we’ll make sure it ends up amazing.

ATTENTION PUPPY ADOPTERS: You will be required to attend training/behavior classes with your new dog unless you are experienced dog owners and your adoption coordinator is comfortable with your experience. This requirement is for the benefit of you and your puppy so if you experience behavior issues you have a point of contact.
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??

Adoption donations cover pre-adoption vet costs (including vaccinations, spay/neuter when age appropriate, and heartworm testing/treatment when necessary), a microchip, and transportation to New England if necessary.
