Introducing Luna’s babies - sadly Luna is not around to watch her babies go off to their new homes as she was unfortunately hit by a car - we will make it our mission to make sure they get fabulous homes.
Luna was a stray on on the streets of Memphis being fed by the team of All 4’s Rescue League - they weren’t able to trap her as she had not led them to her babies yet - the person feeding her finally found them and the plans to trap her were set in motion but she was injured that same night - unbelievable.
Her babies, of approx. 7 weeks of age, were found and are now safe and sound in a fantastic foster homes Three adorable boys and three pretty girls. Their foster parents are going to be sure they are socialized and are fat and happy by the time they arrive to New England.
Shadow is very sweet and curious. He gets very excited to see me when I come home. He loves to run, do “zoomies” and hide behind plants in my yard. He has learned recall with the words “Come Here”. He is very treat motivated and loves to eat. He loves to give kisses and lay in your lap for belly rubs. He loves toys and is doing very well with house training. He knows to go to the door if he needs to go potty. He loves playing with my 2 dogs and follows them around. He will flip over on his back when they are playing with him.
Shadow is a little bit timid and shy and will need some time to warm up to his new family. Given this little guy’s timidness, we’ve decided it’s important that he be placed in a home with another dog who is confident and who can show him all that a New England lifestyle has to offer.
Shadow’s foster parents have been working on crate training, socialization (they are happy pups) - we guarantee nothing about house training but know they are working on it.
They look to be short-stocky pups but again, we don’t know who dad was but mamma was a beautiful girl.

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 consider purchasing this book before adopting. Perfect Puppy in 7 Days - How to Start Your Puppy Off Right, Sophia Yin, DVM - it is an amazing book that we recommend very highly and have had amazing feedback on.
