|Captain is a Charlotte puppy, a shepherd/lab mix, born into our rescue (along with his 3 brothers & sister) on November 29, 2016.
The puppies, along with their mom, were lovingly raised and cared for by our experienced puppy raising friends, Jim & Terri, and when they were about 11-12 weeks old, were all placed into foster-to-adopt homes, including Captain.
We didn't hear much from Captain's foster family over the next several months, which is always good news as far as we're concerned. In late May, we received an update photo, along with the news that "Captain got a bath!":
Captain was neutered on schedule in June 2017, and formally adopted by his foster family.
UPDATE 10/11/2017: We received an email from Captain's family that "from the beginning," Captain had been much too rough with their shih tzu and that their efforts to properly bring the two together had failed. Because Captain was only getting bigger and playing with their shih tzu was not working out at all, they felt they had no choice but to ask us to rehome Captain.
Captain is now 10-1/2 months old. He is a typical, rough and tumble puppy who just wants to play and have fun. He's housebroken, crate trained and good with older kids -- he may have too much energy for younger ones. We don't know if the family's shih tzu is the only dog Captain has been exposed to since leaving his brothers and sister, but we DO know that in his litter, Captain was every bit the typical puppy, playing and roughhousing with his littermates. When he moved in with the shih tzu, we're guessing that Captain wanted to continue his typical puppy playing, but with the much smaller dog being unable to keep up with him.
Captain is now waiting for the right family. The hard work (getting a dog through the puppy stage) has been done! He's ready to steal your heart and move on with his life.
Adoption fee $275.00.
