About Me

Meet Mr. Handsome himself—Ricotta!

Along with those big round eyes, silky soft coat, and tall ears, Ricotta definitely has small dog syndrome. His personality is that of a 60 pound Labrador living in a 7 pound chihuahua. He is very vocal when he first meets you but quiets down quickly once he’s in your arms snuggling against your neck, Ricotta loves to sprint after his toys and try as he might, he just can’t fit the tennis ball in his mouth. Ricotta gets along famously with other dogs and cats and will make a great addition to any family. Fill out an application for this little cheese today!

A litter update from our 9 c-section puppies. Two weeks old and all thriving. Many thanks to our awesome staff and midwife team who devote most minutes of every day caring for these wonderful animals.

Special PSA - our little Namaste is rounding the corner and eating on his own… finally! Parvo hopefully in the rear view mirror for this guy. Still so skinny however.

Namaste still hanging in there - all the care that goes into treating a parvo dog is quite remarkable. Just as we bathed and changed his bedding, his profuse diarrhea continues. He is holding down the small bit of gruel we fed him which is encouraging. More IV fluids, more drugs and antibiotics to protect his gut, and more time. Please vaccinate your pets - it is so important.

Parvo = YUCK! Vomiting, diarrhea, and just plain old not feeling well. Please remember with owning a pet comes the responsibility of vaccinating your pet. “Namaste” is a teenager and still susceptible to this crummy virus. We are hopeful with time and a cocktail of drugs, he will be on the mend. But for now, he has seen brighter days. Please consider donating to his care by clicking the Linktree in our bio.

Thank you!!

Only YOU can prevent contamination! (no wait...that's Smokey the Bear...) Regardless, we could really use the help! Puppy kisses included! ...

This may be the biggest surprise we've ever had!

Turns out that our senior girl Violetta was PREGNANT at 10 years young! Her wonderful and vigilant foster noticed something seemed a little "off" and it turns out she had two little buns in the oven! Thankfully she was able to birth both puppies naturally and momma and babies are all doing wonderfully. What a way to kick off 2022!
