Shelter: Louie's Legacy
Pet Description: You don't have to be a Yellowstone fan to fall in love with the Yellowstone puppies. They are 7 week old cattle dog mixes who arrived at their foster home at 5 weeks old. Although they are funny, scrappy little pups they love nothing more than to pile onto someone's lap and take a nap. Anyone's lap will do and they usually sleep in piles of ten. The brown/red ones are Beth, Elsa, and Colby. They have dark red coats with freckle accents. Teeter, Laramie, Ennis, and Lloyd are smaller and lighter colored than the others yet heavily freckled. Rip, Walker, and Dutton have the most characteristic cattle dog markings and stocky builds. They are rambunctious puppies that play hard then like to crash hard. They are very affectionate and are ready to have their own families. They love to play tug of war and chew on stuffed animals, but being one of ten siblings is getting old for them! They weighed 1.3 to 3 pounds upon arrival into foster care and at 7 weeks have doubled their weight. They immediately learned to crawl into the laps and arms of everyone they've met. They are submissive and will fall asleep in your arms. They have had no interaction with cats or adult dogs. These puppies are typical puppies and not crate trained or potty trained, but they do sleep in an open crate together at night. Since they are herding dog mixes, care should be taken to ensure they do not nip at children as they grow up. They have been getting redirection on their manners in their foster home and it will need to continue so they learn expectations while they are young. They would do best in a fenced yard. Being so young it is hard to predict their size or temperament, but their parents were referred to as "cattle dog mixes and you can look at the diversity in the litter to have an idea of their mix. It is likely they will be medium sized dogs.
