Our pack plays a huge role in our fostering! Often times we bring in young puppies that have not been with their mom long enough to learn positive puppy behaviors and that's where our pack steps in and helps teach those behaviors.
Everyone (2 legged and 4 legged) has a unique role to fill! Fostering is truly an everyone on board effort.
Oh uncle Odis! He thinks ALL the babies are HIS and he must protect and watch over them!
When the young ones come to us he is always right there watching, listening and waiting to tell us that they moved, grunted or sneezed and we better go check it out...NOW....HURRY UP!
He LOVES the little's and is always breaking up squabbles, blocking the bully from picking on the others or letting them crawl all over him to boost their confidence!
Zelda aka Jiggly Butt;
Her motto is: "A tired puppy, is a good puppy"!
Zelda is like the "fun" aunt, she can be very standoffish with the pups until they learn some basic respect and manners but once they have learned not to be frenzied piranhas she is all about PLAY time! She loves to run, chase, play and just overall tire the puppies out!
DeeDee is queen of the pack.
She enforces the rules and acceptable pack behaviors. It is amazing how gentle she is with the babies but also firm with her discipline of them!
