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

WOOF!! Sometimes technology just isn't what it should be, how you want it, and when you need it. Last Friday, my humans and I went to a graduation party in North Carolina. I was planning to spend a few hours before the party writing "Friday's Friend" and sharing my about my friends who need "Forever Homes" but could not get online.  So, this week I'm sharing a few friends who need humans to love.

My friend "Miss Lisa" from Operation Paws for Homes brought by two friends for you to meet.  This is Jelly Belly!

 Jelly Bean is one fun and sweet character.  He is a 3-year-old, Pug Terrier mix who enjoys being with his humans.

He has done very well with other dogs in his foster home.  He's crated trained and learning to be house trained.  He is making pawcellent progress with only a few accidents!

He enjoys going on walks and does very well on a leash. He is content snuggling up for awhile too.  

Jelly Bean is working on improving his manners too. He's a quick learner and loves getting attention from his humans.  

A note from Operation Paws for Homes: Jelly Bean tested positive for heartworm disease before arriving to the rescue. Heartworm disease is transmitted to a dog through a bite from an infected mosquito producing a positive test in six months. Operation Paws for Homes will treat the dog and provide two weeks’ recovery time prior to adoption. Potential adopters will receive detailed information on the disease and their role in completing the recovery process from the Operation Paws for Homes Heartworm Coordinator. With monthly preventatives, the disease is completely preventable. Read about heartworm disease here: Heartworm Society, Pet Owner Resources, Heartworm Basics

Meet Schnapps!

(C) Operation Paws for Homes

This incredibly adorable pups was born around April 22, 2017.Though she seems to have a calm personality, her playful side does come out too!  She is looking for a human who will not leave her home alone for more than four hours at a time!  The human needs to understand puppies need constant attention as they love to get into and chew on everything. WOOF!!

She is not potty trained but is working to get there!  

Since Schnapps is so young, she has only had 2 sets of the required 3 sets puppy vaccinations. Barkingly, this is most important to note as it means her immune system will not be fully functioning until about 6 weeks of age! WOOF! 

Barkingly, she MUST stay out of public spaces where she could be exposed to the germs of other dogs for another 8-10 weeks after going home.  BARK! These NO PUPPY ZONES include all pet stores, dog parks and for apartment dwellers, all areas used by other dogs.  These requirements are strictly for the puppy’s medical safety and longevity.

Barks, if you would like to apply to adopt Schnapps, please contact Operation Paws for Homes, or email:
