Part of the mission of Our Place to Paws is to help abandoned animals. We just received this note from Peggy Dey of Dey by Dey Studio in New Hill, North Carolina:
"A VERY prenant Rat Terrier found her way to us the week before Christmas, and within a day of her arrival we were blessed with 7 mixed-breed puppies. It was a bit too quiet around here I guess, adding a few extra fur balls to play around our feet seemed necessary. For now we aren't going to try to place them with the rescues; they have their hands full already and we would like to place as many as possible through people we know. These puppies are not going to be big dogs, since their mom is only 15 lbs. As for dad, who knows...a German Shepard or Husky mix(!)? They might get to 40lbs but are likely to be much smaller than that from what everyone here can guess. These sweethearts will have had their first rounds of shots and all dewormings and even be chipped in case they get lost." For information on adopting a pup, email DeybyDeyStudio@aol.com.
