Prue is a happy go lucky, 3-4 month old Labradane (3/4 Dane, 1/4 Lab) pup who was rescued thankfully from an online giveaway site. She was full of worms, had giardia and coccidia but is now healthy and acting like a normal crazy, sweet, life loving puppy and we are so happy to see the turn around! It is so common to see people wanting free dogs but in reality this is what you get and it often takes a lot to get them healthy. Prue's foster family will be working on her indoor puppy skills and her basic commands and manners and we know that she will be ready to go as soon as you're ready to adopt her! Being a puppy she is of course great with other dogs, cats and kids and with continued socialization she will remain that way.
BDHPI Puppy Policy
All puppies less than 6 months of age are too young to be spayed/neutered so they are adopted out on special puppy spay/neuter agreements with a $50 refundable spay/neuter deposit. Adopting families must agree to get the puppy altered within 2 weeks of 6 months of age and send proof of S/N to BDHPI accordingly. Adopting families are expected to pay $425 minimum for mixed puppies AND will have the additional costs listed above, so please keep this in mind.
When adopting a puppy, new families need to be prepared for not only a substantial financial investment, but also a significant time commitment in order to raise your puppy properly. Crate training is a critical part of setting them up for success as well as potty training. You can't leave a puppy in the crate for longer than 4 hours max and they typically have to be let outside every hour when you are home since their bladder is not as big as an adult. You will want to make sure your puppy gets regular exercise and has plenty of mentally stimulating chew toys such as puzzle toys(food cubes, busy buddy toys, kongs, etc). Socialization the first 6 months is critical to their development socially and once they have had all of their shots, you will want to take your new puppy everywhere you can to get them used to meeting lots of new people, different dogs, and visiting places outside of the home. Obedience training is also extremely important (and actually part of our adoption agreement requirements) so that your puppy grows up to be a gentle giant instead of a giant monster!
