Sweets is not ready for adoption yet, but is available for Sponsorship . Sweets has a heart murmur and will be getting a cardio consultation.

Sweets is one of Hope’s puppies-Hope is a border collie and/or Aussie mix.  Hope is on the smaller side and has a rough tri-color coat with some brindle.  Hope is a lower energy border collie and does not appear to have much interest in herding or working drive.  Hope is a shy dog by nature and these puppies should have continued socialization to make sure they are able to cope with or overcome any genetic tendency to be fearful they may have.  Hope also has significant signs of hip dysplasia on her x-rays but no apparent clinical signs at this time.  The puppies would be predisposed to hip dysplasia based on this but they also may never have an issue.  We felt any potential adopters should be aware of this.  These puppies have been raised in a foster home and handled daily.  The father is unknown but it’s possible he was also a border collie or Aussie mix with a rough coat.  These puppies will be lower to medium energy and make great companion dogs.

The puppies will need two additional sets of vaccines after adoption and will be adopted out on a spay/neuter contract mandating that a surgical spay or neuter be performed by six months of age. The puppies will be placed in the best fit home and not on a first come/first serve basis.

Sweets is the runt of the litter but what he lacks in size he makes up for in personality.  He’s always right there helping me with chores and trying to climb out of his pen.  He gets very excited for food and is always ready to dive in! He has a small cleft lip which is mostly a cosmetic issue but could cause some teeth to be misaligned.  He may need additional dental care in the future if there is crowding or poor alignment in that area. 

Sweets is being fostered in the Ozark Mo area.
