DAHLIA

Kate, Dahlia & Lily were found in a barn in rural Idaho. Kate had the markings of a shorthair so we agreed to take her into our program as a favor to an all-breed rescue friend. Mamma was a black lab and there were apparently multiple sires as all the pups looked different. Kate was the first to be diagnosed with parvo and, at about 14-wks old, she spent 5 days on an IV at our vet. Dahlia & Lily were treated at another vet. We weren't sure some days if they would pull through but these little girls all proved to be fighters and between their will to live, the great staff at two different vets and everyone's prayers they survived.

Dahlia found a new home with Kathy & Jim who offered to foster two puppies and found themselves nursing them through the fight of their lives. Much to 12-yr old Daisy's dismay, Dahlia moved in permanently and we think she did well choosing a family complete with two cats, a rooster and a dad who has the patience of Job where puppies are concerned.

Other pups from this litter:
Penny Lane (was Kate)
Lily (now Marley)
