I was found in the desert near the mines—all kinds of dangers for a puppy out there, and I did need medical care when rescued. Fortunately, that went very well and today I’m enjoying all kinds of puppy fun. My wonderful foster mom sings my praises: “Dolores is a gem,” she said, adding that I’m extremely smart, rarely bark, happy to sleep in my crate and a great eater. She takes me walking on a leash, reports that housebreaking is progressing, and that I’ve “shown no signs of being anything other than a lovely little puppy.” Awww, thanks foster Mom! I was 15 pounds at 4 months, a tan Shepherd mix female, and if you have time and big love to give, I’d love to be your puppy today and your companion forever.
