Breeds: Pit Bull Terrier, Crossbreed
Meet the Momma Cass litter!! The most adorable variety of black and white pups. They are all in loving foster homes and are just flourishing!!
Loving Spoonful (“Spoonie” is her current nickname of choice, but the options are endless) is the runt of the litter and is currently fostering in New England. We think she will be a delicate medium sized pup and has eyes that will win you over in a second. She is living with three human and one fur sibling and loves that she never has to look far for a playmate or a cuddle buddy. She is used to having company both from her littermates and her foster siblings and would like to be placed somewhere where she wouldn’t be alone much.
While her southern foster said that she hadn’t had much in terms of leash or house training, she has been a super star at learning both. She sleeps through the night in the crate and goes potty outside. She will need a routine to complete her training, but she is a very fast learner and food motivated. She has only chewed on dog toys so far and responds when called. She is also quick to drop something when you say “no”. All of the basic training will need to be continued in her new home.
Her current foster family has completely fallen in love with her and would love to see her matched with the perfect family. If you are interested in some fun and cuddles from this perfect mannered puppy get your application in NOW!!!!!

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??
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.

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.
Donations for our young, healthy puppies and dogs support their fellow canines of advanced age or suffering from injuries and abuse whose donations are reduced but whose veterinary costs are typically much higher. We appreciate your understanding that your newly adopted dog will help others in need.
