Black pups - update!

All 5 pups (Charlie, Dodger, Oliver, Calcifur and Wyatt) were neutered on 5/6. All will be up for adoption and will be at our 5/17 adoption event at the Richfield Petco from 10 - noon. If you are interested in any of these pups, please be sure to send an email to or complete an online application for them. These adorable pups (found by a dumpster) are doing great. The neutering apparently has not slowed them down: "they are still rough housing, running and playing." More from foster mom:

"I can't believe how big they are getting. I got Charlie to sit in the dump truck and he barely fits in it now. They used to have plenty of room on their dog bed and now they take up the whole thing. Dodger is still the dominant guy and will bark at you if you stare at him. He will need a strong human leader to keep him in his place. He is still a cuddler and wants to be on you or right next to you. Charlie is the first one to fall asleep and the last one to cry to be picked up. He is still timid of new things but loves to play. He is quite the chewer and needs work to quit chewing on people. Oliver may be the smallest but he sure holds his own. When he gets a toy he will run around the yard with his brother's chasing him until they give up. He also has a temper and will growl and get angry when they pick on him. He wakes up every morning at 5am crying to be let out of the kennel. He is learning what a stern "no" means. Oliver loves to be held and cuddled and really wants to sleep with us instead of his own bed.

We are working on house training but they are stubborn little guys. It is hard to keep up with three of them. They all like to bite and chew and our clothes and fingers are just as much fun as their toys. We have to use a lot of redirecting. The best part of the day is about an hour after dinner. All three cuddle with us on the couch while we watch television."
