Hi puppies, Magnum here to succumb to the peer pressure of posting puppy pictures. Here is a picture of me shortly after Mama and Papa adopted me. I like swimming, but this water was a little scary and it tasted bad. We visit Island Beach State Park every year because puppies are allowed there throughout the year and it is never crowded. A lot of people go fishing there, so we just make sure we are not too close to them and then we sit (or dig) in the sand and chase a ball into the ocean.
If you are thinking I do not look much different in these pictures than in current pictures, you are right. Mama and Papa adopted me less than a year ago last May. Since then I have helped several actual puppies through MaPaw. When I first arrived, I helped foster Eli, who was just under a year old. He was there with me at the beach.
In the fall I helped foster Kashmir. She and her sister were both very sick when they came into MaPaw, but they both recovered nicely. In this picture you can see Kashmir’s party eye. Like most small puppies, she was adopted quickly.We took care of Freddie for just a week until a space opened at his foster home. He is still there learning some manners, but getting along well.Meg never stayed with us, but we transported her from a shelter to her foster home. The shelter later told us they had a few more puppies who looked just like her turn up over the course of a couple weeks. They suspect someone had a litter of puppies and did not want to pay the surrender fee, so just turned them loose in the streets. I would like to bite people who are so irresponsible and selfish. Meg now has a happy home.Willow was one of Jenna’s puppies who we took to her new home. She was the gentlest in her litter and loved kids, so she joined a family that had young kids and were very excited to add a Sibe/Shepherd mix to there family. The best part of fostering is getting to meet so many different dogs from the very young to the very old. I am very glad that I have a family of my own and still get to help other puppies find their new families.
