If you’re looking for a FREE puppy that’s happy and healthy and just now ready for a new home at 8 weeks of age… check out the Franklin/Columbia “Freecycle” group!
That’s where we got our new puppy just three days ago.
Beverly, the dog’s owner, said there were 10 in the litter, and there are 5 still available.
We took our puppy from this litter to the vet yesterday and he checked out just fine with a clean bill of health!
Meet The Parents
The mother is part Great Pyrenees, part Golden Retriever.
The father is a Black Lab (…an escape artist from the neighbor’s fenced-in yard).
This is the 2nd (and final) litter from these parents:
It’s easier to see the mother with her many pups, who were still nursing at the time we first saw the puppies at about 6 weeks of age.
This is “Socks”… one of the male pups from this mama’s first litter. He’s now a year old — Tenor’s “older brother” so to speak.
Which Puppies Are Still Needing Homes?
Three days ago, when we took our puppy home, there were 5 puppies still available — including one male with white paws (like the one we got) and “the runt of the litter” who is a spunky little girl with attitude.
Trust me, they are ALL adorable… we had a very hard time choosing just one. (I’m always a sucker for the underdog, and wanted to take the runt of the litter home.)
Here are more puppy photos of Tenor, plus how we chose his name.
