And when she realizes she is on camera…she just starts to ham it up.  You can see her watching as she plays about to make sure all eyes are still on on 😉

Adoption status update

UPDATED – Aug 10/14
Quintessa has now had her splint off for one week and is doing really well!


We are going through the applications in hopes of choosing her forever home later this week.


Quintessa will go for a final vet check this week, if she gets the ‘OK’ she will receive her 2nd round of puppy vaccinations, she will be dewormed again this week and she should be ready to roll!  She now weighs about 4lbs.


We appreciate the patience of all those who submitted applications, we are doing our best to consider each and every application and it’s tough choosing the most perfect one for such a deserving little girl, all the applications are such loving families.

Quintessa update – Aug 1/14

August 1, 2014


Quintessa just got back from a re-check with her vet.  Her splint is off – for good we hope!


She isn’t quite ready to go to a home yet, the vet would like to give her another 7-10 days without a splint to help her muscles grow and become stronger in her right leg.  This will give us a little time before sending her off to make sure the leg doesn’t start to deviate again without the support.  Our hopes are high and paws crossed that she is all fixed up and good as new!


A few photos now that she is home from the vet without a splint.

Quintessa looks like she is well on her way!  Over the nearly two weeks since she has come in to care her leg has made marvelous progress, and so has she!  What a little trooper and what a fun little pup.  We are now starting to screen applications and are confidant Quintess will be able to start meeting with potential adopters soon, possibly as soon as this coming weekend (August 2nd/3rd)!


She is a bit of a little stinker and has managed pull her splint off a few times over the course of the last two weeks and this weekend while just running down the hall way her splint slid right off her leg.  Her foster mom is less than thrilled about visiting the vet so often to have her splint put back on, but it has given us a chance to document her progress with photos each time and Wow Wow Wow, we are all so excited!

This little girl is such a brat when it comes to keeping her splint on, even the big foster dog’s we’ve had in the past aren’t this tough to keep bandages on, at least it isn’t holding her back one bit!  She is such a gem though and her charming little personality is really shining through.  There is yet to be a person that doesn’t love her within moments of meeting her and there isn’t a person she hasn’t tried to play with or snuggle with.  We had a really busy weekend and I didn’t have time to take a bunch of photos…I missed some super cute photo moments 🙁  But here are a few cute ones….  Looks like she’d be comfortable in a home with another large, gentle, patient dog.  She was also a little star and social butterfly at our big outdoor bash this weekend, she loves people and was loving being passed about like a hot potato for snuggles, kisses and cuddles. She must have meet about 50 people of all ages this weekend and loved it all.  Sadly I missed the adorable photo op with “Granny” and Quintessa snuggling and granny playing tug with Quinn….  But now that things have really calmed down, here are some cute photos of Quinn and her big buddy.  She got her self up there and he didn’t seem to mind 🙂

We just go back from the vet with super news!  Today Blue went to get his Rabies vaccine and not even the vet who has been treating him this whole time recognized him!  He thought we’d brought in a whole new never seen patient!!

The conversation went something like this:

Foster mom:  Hello, we just need a Rabies vaccine today 🙂

Vet: Aww another little tiny one!

Foster mom:  Nooo!  This is the bald little guy!!!

Vet: Oh my gosh, I don’t believe it, put him down, let me see him! ……..Oh my, what a transformation!
