This week's photo shoot at the Nevada Humane Society featured PUPPIES! Two litters of them! The first bunch of five puppies are nine weeks old and should be up for adoption next week. Their mom, a chihuahua/miniature pinscher is a small dog, the puppies' father was something much larger. As a result, the puppies were HUGE and needed a C-section to deliver them. Here's the "keepers" from the session:
How cute is that? Here's what was really going on.....
The second litter of puppies was three weeks old and mom and puppies are currently with a foster mom. Mama dog looks like a spaniel/pomeranian mix. These puppies were just beginning to move around:
Other pets this week include: "Burning Man", a kitten rescued from a house fire in Fernley. This kitten along with two adult cats suffered some singed ears and whiskers and inhaled a bit of smoke. All are up for adoption.
Sugar, the bunny, is not available yet. Spaying bunnies is a bit more complicated than kittens and puppies, and they need a longer recovery time. But still, very cute.
And finally, Tucker. He's a 6 year-old spaniel mix. Very sweet dog, has a bit of an underbite..
