Seeka: Seeking a new foster home

Seeka is a 4 month old spaniel mix who is currently living in foster care with her littermate, Jake. These two young pups have learned a lot in their first 2 months in foster care together, but now we really need to split them up into separate foster homes while they wait for their adoptive families to find them. Often times when littermates live together they will bond more to eachother than to their human pack members. Jake and Seeka need to be split up so that they can focus on learning to bond with people and mastering all of the behaviors and commands expected of well-behaved canine citizens.

Seeka has gotten the hang of housetraining (as long as you stick to getting her out on a regular schedule) and she is crate trained and will sleep through the night. She can be left alone in a crate for 5-6 hours at a time. She's learning "sit" and "come" and other basic commands. In short, all the really hard puppy work has been done, but a lot of fun puppy antics remain!

If you're interested in being the lucky family who gets to foster Seeka, fill out a volunteer application and email it to us at
