It seems that all we ever hear about in rescue, and in the news are stories about puppies that have died or are near death and we have to spend thousands of dollars on in order to nurse back to health because of the greed of puppy brokers or pet stores.
But there are actually puppies out there who are healthy, beautiful, small and perfect that not only do not come from puppy brokers or pet stores - they also have come from rescue
These are photos of Maximo - a puppy that is part of a litter that came over from Newfoundland a few days ago - a breed called "Newfoundland Crackies" that are really a mixed breed of terriers that are sort of like benji dogs that don't end up too big, but are just shaggy medium size dogs.
But these photos prove that healthy puppies do come into rescue - you just have to be patient, and when they arrive - accept them the moment you get the call.
I suppose though that it all depends on the owner of the puppies parents too - because people like Gail Benoit troll for these puppies - and this puppy's parents owner has to be cognizant of the fact that there's people like her - because puppy brokers live for litters like this - "oops litters" that they can make $1,000 off or so.
But luckily this family did the right thing and handed them over to rescue - and hopefully got the parent's spayed and neutered - and now we have some puppies that will all be spayed and neutered - and some happy people with some lovely puppies who are healthy and happy.
These puppies look exactly like the photos that we see from the puppy brokers - but they are SO different - they'll have long happy lives with responsible owners. Isn't that great?
This is Maximus's new sister, Pickle
And this is his new sister, Ursa - they're so beautiful I had to include a photos of them too.
Here is a slideshow of some of the photos I took today - Maximus is a beautiful puppy
