Mercedes Update:

Mercedes is a very affectionate dog. We don’t know much about her life before she ended up very pregnant at the shelter, but she may have never been in a home before. While being an excellent mother to her puppies, she’s been working on her house manners and how not to beg for food. Mercedes is very smart, treat motivated and learns commands quickly.
In her foster home, she doesn’t bark much, enjoys spending time lounging on the floor or on the couch and playing with her doggie and human siblings. Her puppies are almost weened off, and she can’t wait to find a family of her own. Apply to adopt her below

We stepped in just in the knick of time to save mama to be Mercedes, hours before her pregnancy was going to be terminated at full term at a high kill shelter in southeast Texas.

9 healthy babies made it into this world 🥰 and this family is now safe and doing fabulously in their NY foster home! The puppies (4 boys and 5 girls) were born on 9/24(and currently resemble little piglets) but they’re growing bigger and stronger each day.

Mama is taking excellent care of her babies — and the puppies will be available for adoption as they get closer to 8 weeks old. Mama will be ready to finder her forever home then too.
