Hi, I have rescued a mother dog in 2009. She has been called a princess but really she is a hound dog standing from foot to head about 16 inches tall. I call her a hound dog because she loves to get messy. Her babies are now 1 1/2 years old. There is the largest Oscar who stands at 32 inches tall from feet to head. Columbus medium size chocolate chip sweetie pie who weight in the 30 to 35 pound range and is tri color. Light Brown, Dark brown spots and speckles and White. Zottie a small Chocolate lab of about 30 to 35 pounds with a high motabilisim. I'm really hoping an Agility dog person finds her and takes her home. From a stand still she can jump on a 32 inch table. And of course she jumps from couch to couch. Requires training but she is at the right age to be a jumper. Buster looks like a Bassett hound feet and size. I'm hoping to keep him because my son loves him.
I have all shot records, surgeries in detail. This is too large an amount of dogs. They all have been trained to jump into the bathtub. They are indoor dogs that would love a home with fenced yard to potty.
Phreddy 16 inch tall black and white. 3 years?
Oscar Large 32 inch black and white loves kids. 1 1/2yrs.
Zottie/Zotty Medium size eats 3cups a day Agility Potiential. 1 1/2 yrs.
Columbus Medium size 2 cups a day Agility Potiential. 1 1/2 yrs
Buster Bassett hound. 1 1/2 yrs
I am asking a small rehoming fee. Thank you!

Zottie (teddy) girl. Agility potiential. 30 to 35 pounds. She loves attension, food and stares into your eyes. Oscar is in the back. The larger they are the softer the personality. He is 32 inches tall from feet to head.

Putting how much they eats is a bit strange, but if you wish to make it relavent perhaps put what they have been fed. Agility people are more interested in what you have been feeding than how much.

Also we dog sport people like pictures that show a dog's structure. Tiny sleeping pics (with pizza) are cute but don't tell anyone anything about the dog)

ETA you can add up to 10 pictures in one post.

Thank you Dekka--I didn't know that.

I feed twice aday. Zottie is a medium dog but she eats as much as Oscar 3cups.

Their morning starts out with (now at 21% protien) and 1/4 cup of oatmeal and a teaspoon of yogurt. It isn't much but over time I figure it will add up.
I have been feeding them this reciepe since they were big enough to go this route. (Gosh, how quickly you forget all the stuff you do.) It really started out with their mom and giving her herbs for heartworms. Eight months and no cure according to her doc but she had babies to run around with and now she is on heartguard period. As I have read the positive can still show up after treatment conventional and non conventional methods. She has never showed any signs or problems.

Dekka I will try to do as you ask. She can jump at a stand still onto a 32 inch table. I have not encourage this behavoir its natural. *I heard that their bones shouldn't go through rigors until their about her age now for jumping. I believe within me she is a champion. I'll get thoughs pic's.

Jumping is such a small part of being an agility dog. A dog only has to jump as high as their measure jump height. So if these dogs are going to mature 16 inches they will only have to jump 16 inches or less.

Speed, drive, confidence etc those things are far more important than high jumping. Agility is a good sign though. My 13 1/4 JRT can jump an entire course at 24 inches, but its more of a trick. In competition he will never be asked to jump higher than 16.

as an aside that is a LOT of food. Our border collie only eats 1 1/3 cups a day of food.

Here is a couple of pic's Dekka, p.s. thanks for your input I just love them and art is my hobby. She must have a high motabolish because if I feed her less she looks underfed.



Columbus is another natural jumper. Both their heights foot to back 20 inches.
They do need to be trained but their food motivated and Zotty loves praise. Columbus food. They can sit, run lay down (the fast down) and jump into the tub. (That's it)



Picture of mom, she is about 16 inches.

Great......

3 cups of iams is mainly filler. That's fine.. But then they'd eat far less of something with less filler. That is what people may want to know.

I don't get it. . . you got a pregnant dog, and kept her and her puppies for a year and a half and now they all need new homes?

Yes, I'm in the U.S. in a area hit hard by the economy in normal times. Is there something wrong with that? Call me a bleeding heart. I'm sure you are aware of how many dogs are killed each year in pounds. Since when is doing something good bad?

Oh, yes, and I learned how to give my own shots and learned how to mix my own heartworm meds. And I learned how to provide non chemical tic and flea repellant. So, I don't know what you are suggesting? I am a real person and the mother of these puppies is real also.

Well that's a good question. Phreddy wandered in the yard pregnant and all banged up and buggy and another dog I named Casper. Casper was abused. His collar several times too small for his neck. It took me months to touch him. He still has only one way that he'll allow anyone to touch him. It was too much. I was going to keep them all! I'm not rich but I figured my cost by year and figured I could do it. What I hadn't counted on is my dogs are packing. I had an original dog before the population explotion called Lil Bit. I rescued her from the pound around Christmas about 5 or so years ago. Anyway the Girls don't get along as well as I thought. A fight broke out and it broke my heart to see my loved ones hurt each other. My mom has Lil Bit now. So, I've come to the point and the decision that I have done all I can. I have done a good job. These are all good dogs, they need what I can't give them. (Individual attension)
