Snow and Britches had a litter of 6 puppies, born on August 8th, 2011. There are 2 females and 4 males. They are 2.5 hours old in this picture.
These puppies are all spoken for, but
please check back for information about upcoming litters!
Update - September 13th, 2011
The puppies are doing so well. They started eating ground puppy kibble soaked in goat’s milk at 4 weeks of age. They love it and are eating like little pigs. We have already started worming them with Fenbendozole at 3 and 5 weeks. We will be taking them in for their vet checks in a few weeks. We also will be microchipping them soon.
We are very pleased with this litter - we are seeing lovely heads, necks and nice short backs. The puppies are starting to develop individual personalities - they are all so sweet!
Britches is an excellent mother and the babies are crawling all over her. She is so patient, she just lets them!
By the way, we are taking Alec and Violet to the National Specialty in a few weeks - these are Britche’s kids from her two previous litters. Alec and Violet go over to the puppies and give their little brothers and sisters kisses all the time!
Note: The puppies faces are stained from Britches licking them after they eat. She wants to make sure they are sparkling clean. This is an important bonding opportunity for Britches and her babies!
