Friday's Friend! Dog Adoption, Operation Paws for Homes

Happy Friday!  I am excited its the weekend.  I might get to paw with a few friends!  My human is photographing for Operation Paws for Homes on Saturday so I will give him my usual sniffing scrutiny and my look of "and, just where have you been and with who?"  I really don't mind- I just get extra treats and attention from him!  WOOF!!!!

My friend "Miss Ashley" from Operation Paws for Homes brought by a sweetheart of a girl for you to meet- Meet Mayalou!

(C) Operation Paws for Homes
The photos I'm sharing of her, show she has had a bit of a rough and tough life.  Operation Paws for Homes rescued her from Southern Virginia where she was found alone.  With some medical help for mange, she is doing pawsome.  She's learned that humans are pawsome after all.

Mayalou is approximately 14 weeks old and is a Wire Fox Terrier Hound- a barkingly interesting dog!

Mayalou is learning to play, walk her human on a leash and that being clean is a good thing.  She is enjoying sleeping in her crate, belly rubs, watching TV, playtime, and that its fun and most important to have humans hold and love on her!  Paws, I recommend all dogs get a human or two, maybe even a complete set- they need you!

She is learning to take her "business" outside and is getting the idea not to do it in the humans house!

Cats are not her thing.  She keeps barking at her Foster Humans cat every chance she gets!  WOOF!! WOOF!!  It could be because the cat is the same size as her and she wants to play with her or it may be the Terrier in her.   She just barks!

Since she is just a young pupster, it's impawant she goes home with children that are respectful of her size and age. She will require a human who is not gone from the home for more than 4 hours at one time to continue her training - no exceptions!

Mayalou is up-to-date on age appropriate vaccines and will need to be neutered at the age of 6 months.  Paws, since she is so young, she's only received 2 sets of the required 3 sets puppy vaccinations. An impawtant note because it means that her immune system will not be fully functioning until about 16 weeks of age. She MUST stay out of public places where she could be exposed to the germs of many other dogs for another six weeks after she goes home. No puppy zones include all pet stores, dog parks, and for apartment dwellers, areas used by other dogs, These requirements are strictly for the puppy’s medical safety and longevity.  WOOF!!!
