We’ve got a few new additions to the MaPaw family that we’d love to tell you about!
First up is Dempsey. This handsome boy is just a year old, which means he’s still a lot of puppy! He’s a bit mouthy when seeking attention and we’re working with him on that. It just seems that this boy never got the training that he needed to help him be a good canine citizen. He is a quick learner and he’s learning every day!
He is good with other dogs his size or larger and spends much of his day romping with the other pups. Dempsey is looking for a sibe-savvy home that will continue with his training.
Next up is Mila. This gorgeous red and white is still just a baby at 6 months old. Her human Mom got a new job and knew that the long hours alone were not good for Mila, so she made the very difficult decision to find her another home that would love Mila as much as she does.
Typical of young Huskies, Mila has an abundance of energy and will do best in a home with another active canine housemate. She’s a smart girl that has already graduated from puppy training ~ she knows sit, down and paw.
Our next addition is Nelson. This adorable boy is approximately 3 years old and made his way to us from an area shelter when they felt it would be best for Nelson to be placed through rescue. He was originally found as a stray and sadly, his family never came to take him home.
Nelson enjoys playing with other dogs his size or larger and enjoys hours of playtime with the other pups. We don’t really know anything about his past, but we have learned that he is a little possessive of his food at mealtime. He will politely accept his bowl, however, prefers to be left alone while he’s eating. For that reason, Nelson would be best placed in a home with no small children.
Finally, meet Zeus. If you’re thinking that you don’t see any Husky, you may be right. This 2 year old boy is a Lab/Shepherd mix that we just knew we had to help when we heard his story. Zeus had been brought home as a pup for a 6 year old who soon lost interest in having him as a companion. Without taking the time to train him, his “family” put him in a crate in the basement. When he eventually figured out how to open the crate and get out, they chained him to a treadmill and left him alone in the basement.
They finally decided to take him to the local shelter where poor Zeus was overwhelmed and frightened at all of the noise and activity. The shelter felt it would be in his best interest to transfer him to rescue where he could learn what life in a family is supposed to be. After joining MaPaw, it didn’t take long for Zeus to find happiness in frolicking with the other pups and soaking up attention from the humans around him.
He’s ready to find his forever family and we can’t wait for the next chapter of his life!
