The New Mexico 5 came from a Ruidoso NM shelter thanks to a long long drive by Daryl. We heard about them on a Wednesday and on Friday Daryl was in the car driving as it was clear they could not survive an extended stay at the shelter. Their owner dropped off the whole litter at 6 weeks of age as he could not give them away. He told the shelter mom was a Vizsla but since he has no fenced yard he had no idea who the father was. There were 6 puppies, all were very small, all needed added food and medical care as their weights ranged from 4.25 up to 6 lbs. One very tiny sister who had been sick since birth passed away at the shelter. Our best guess at the mix is GSP, Weim, or Choc Lab based on the solid color, coat length and body style. Most local dogs are chow, heelers, labs, or Rotties and these dogs don't match much but the lab. After several weeks in foster care with the Dowdells and Penny & Frank the puppies started going to new homes at 10 weeks.

Renna became a multi-state traveler and airplane pro when she flew to CA with Auntie Rebecca. Her new family drove up to meet her and were immediately in love with their new girl. Renna fell in the pool at Auntie Rita's house and found out that she is a good swimmer at only 9 weeks. She is making herself right at home in CA and, despite the beautiful photo, most of the flowers have survived.

Her new mom writes: I wanted to thank you for Renna. She has been brining such joy to Greg and I. I took her to the vet today. She is worm free and weighs 13.5 pounds. The vet was impressed with how well she had been taken care of before she was in our hands. Your work has not gone unnoticed. People are so surprised when we tell them that Renna was born in New Mexico, and now living in Fresno. Your networking has benefited us greatly, we now have Renna! :) Greg and I appreciate all that you have done for her! Better go, squeaky puppy at my feet.

Other pups from this litter are
