Puppy BREATH (Behavior • Research • Education • Adoption •  Training • Health)  first momma has arrived.

We rescued her from a high kill shelter in NC, with the help of a dear friend of mine who coordinates transports through out the sate of NC sending highly adoptable dogs to Best Friends in NY.

On Sunday February 10th, Puppy BREATH welcomed an approximately 1.5 year old black lab cross Border Collie to launch the program.  With the help of one of Doglando's client, a Pilots and Paws Captain, we flew out to Charlotte to meet this gal.

I can not describe her better than she looks like a pygmy goat.  The perfect size, full belly protruding from both sides, her belly looks very full.

It absolutely amazes me to see mutt dogs with such great temperaments coming out of the shelters, on the other hand the many dogs that are intentionally bred for that are ill-tempered.  Natural selection certainly has it's place in evolution... but this post is not about that.

We took momma in for an X-ray to help us determine how many pups she might have.  Originally it was not part of our plan, but Belinda (campus coach) insisted we do that.  Good thing for Belinda, because we would have been totally unprepared.

Take a look, count the circles, what do you see?  Find all the circles connected to a spine, and thats one pup.

There are a total of 8 possibly 9 pups on route!  Wow, the KARMA club has a lot of work ahead of them.  Follow us on FB with Doglando Foundation to keep up to date on the Puppy BREATH program and how you can help.
