Likes Dogs?

Say hello world to our new arrival, a precious baby girl named Kristin.  She is a complete cuddle bug, happy to be in your lap all the time when she is not exploring the world.  A beautiful buff 8 week old with white gloves on her front feet and a unique little kink at the end of her undocked tail, as well as the most soulful dark eyes you've ever gazed into.

Friendly and outgoing, with just a trace of shyness, Kristin weighs in at a petite 6 1/2 pounds at her 7-9 week vet visit where she checked out in good health.  She eats well, and is learning to head for the door when its time to go out.  She is a total sweetheart.

This pretty little girl is named in memory of late OBG volunteer, Kristin Natvig.  She always preferred to foster younger dogs and help prepare them for a forever home.  As this little girl begins her life with a forever family, we can think of no better way to honor Kristin and all the pups to whom she helped give a second chance at a great life!

Before applying for a puppy, please carefully consider the following issues.  Will someone be home every 2-3 hours to let the puppy outside?  Our general rule of thumb is that if a dog needs to be crated more than 6 hours/day total, then that dog is the wrong one for the person's lifestyle.  Please consider Puppy Kindergarten classes - it is never too early to start training.  More dogs under the age of 3 years are euthanized for behavior issues than for illnesses.  Puppies (and dogs) are expensive.  It can cost over $1500 a year to care for a dog (vet check-ups, shots, spay/neuter, heartworm/flea tick preventatives, food, and other supplies).  Lastly, please consider your summer travel plans before applying for a puppy.  We do not adopt puppies more than 1-2 hours outside of the Washington DC area (we will adopt to Richmond and Baltimore).
