Tikka has been adopted! 04-18-2021
In the rural high desert there is a rescuer who feeds and befriends the stray dogs that call the rocks and canyons their home. She walks the train tracks and sets up feeding stations for the souls that have been abandoned and learn to fend for themselves. One of the female dogs that she had been trying to trap and befriend was seen building a den and spending a lot of time away. Low and behold, she had birthed a litter of puppies in the den she built between two boulders. Thanks to the help of a wonderful trapper, momma and pups were brought to safety. Momma is learning how to trust again and she is decompressing in a safe environment- her babies have been hand raise since about three weeks of age! They are now ready to be adopted! These pups are a combo of shepherd and other herding breeds, plus a big portion of cuteness! They each have their own personalities but all are solid, balanced pups who are ready to join families of their own!
Tikka is a gal on the go. Alert and interested in everything around her. She loves toys and wholeheartedly believes that variety is the spice of life. One toy will never do for Miss Tikka. Although currently her favorite chew seems to be her foster mom's ponytail. Tikka gives sweet kisses and can be very affectionate but she's not clingy. She definitely knows how to amuse herself.
The litter's mom appears to be a GSD/Husky/Herding dog mix. The possible dad appears to be a white Husky. The T litter puppies have quite a few Husky traits including being stubborn, very busy, talking and howling.
The minimum adoption donation for adults is $375 and the adoption donation for puppies is $500. This amount only partially covers the cost of veterinary care, boarding fees, and other miscellaneous expenses involved in the temporary care and adoption of our dogs and is tax deductible when permitted by law. The adoption donation provides that all dogs will be spayed or neutered, receive current vaccinations, and are microchipped. If not, arrangements will be made on an individual basis ( i.e., puppies who will need to be altered by 6 mos old). Special consideration may be given to those willing to adopt older dogs or dogs with physical problems.
