Dogtown: A pair of cuddlepups

Tiger Rose and Cheddar.

Week 45. The Union has lots of news for you this week so here’s a quick look at two puppies up for adoption. Cheddar and Tiger Rose came to Redwood Pals from Whitethorn. 

The home that they came from is in the process of getting their adult dogs spayed and neutered, but this litter showed up before that happened and they needed some help with finding good homes. 

When I first met the litter of nine, I was pleased to see how well-cared for they had been. I gave them their first vaccines and wormer while they were still in my car (with a helping hand from my next-door neighbor!) and we whisked them off to a waiting foster home. 

They quickly made themselves at home, exploring the yard, meeting the resident dog, watching the chickens and enjoying lots of attention from their new little girl and her friends next door. (Could you have guessed that a five year old gave them those names?) 

We are getting glowing reports from the pups that have already been adopted. These puppies are quite cuddly and have been good with the children and other pets in their new homes. The puppies are now 10 weeks old and are mastering some useful skills. 

Cheddar and Tiger Rose happily trot into their crate when it is bedtime and go right outside in the morning to go potty. They stay close when people are around, except for the afternoon that the resident dog took them for a little walk down the driveway. We think she was trying to get rid of them, but fortunately the puppies didn’t fall for that!

The mama to these pups looks like a Dutch Shepherd type dog, maybe about 50 to 55 pounds. The pups look like a mutt mix with possible lab or bull dog in their makeup. 

These two are available through Redwood Pals Rescue on a foster-to-adopt basis. That means we will monitor them through their next two vaccines and their spay and neuter before they are officially adopted, though they will be living with their adopters. 

To  meet these two, please contact Redwood Pals Rescue at  [email protected] or leave a voicemail at (707) 633-8842
