MEET OLIVIA’S PUPPIES….born January 8, 2016…one day after she was pulled from the Riverside Shelter!  They weren’t even sure she was pregnant!  WOW!  Ambrosia, Freesia, Mojo and Tulip are blossoming just like wonderful puppies should!  They are 4-6lbs at this time and will likely be 10-15 lbs at maturity.  There are three girls, one boy….all full of love and kisses!  Their personalities are still blooming, but this is what we know so far:

AMBROSIA (1st photo) or “Amber” as she is know by her friends and family, is the most rambunctious of all the puppies!  She stands out because she is the only “tan” one in the bunch.  She loves to kiss, play and wrestle!!  It is so cute watching her challenge a squeaky toy!  She has the most energy of all the litter….is a total lovebug and is a joy to watch.

TULIP is the curliest of the puppies and looks the most poodle.  She is a high octane puppy and loves to play and be A PUPPY!  Surprise surprise.  Loves to give kisses, play with toys, balls and tug of war….she’s a good eater like all the rest!!  She has a funny little bark when she plays….and she is a dollbaby.

FREESIA (2nd photo) is the biggest of the litter, already topping the scale at 6.02 lb.  While she is the biggest, she is very gentle and and the most mellow among her sisters.  She adores getting lots of attention and being held.

MOJO (3rd photo) is the only male in the litter and perhaps that is why he is the most mellow.  He was the runt of the litter but he has caught up with everyone except Freesia, who is the biggest.  Cute as a button, he loves kids and people and his mom!!!  Pictured below is Olivia….the puppies’ mom!


EACH PUPPY IS CUTER THAN THE NEXT…YOU CAN’T GO WRONG!  They are all adorable, happy, kissy, playful — all like puppies are supposed to be!

They are now weaned and will be ready to go home after their second set of shots, around 11 weeks (March 20th), when they will make their debut at our adoption event.   If you are interested in any of them…please apply immediately.  We will be reviewing applications upon receipt and hope to pre adopt them before 11 weeks!  They will each go out on a spay/neuter contract, requiring adopters to pay a $200 deposit, which will be refunded once they are sterilized.   The puppies’ adoption fee is $400.00.

IF you meet the above criteria and want to be considered to adopt  one of the puppies, please go to Adoption Application under “Adopt”  and complete the Adoption Application to get the process started.
