Rescued redheaded pups! (photo dump)
A very kind lady found these two lil' guys in the middle of the road late at night...and nearly ran over them! She stopped to scoop them up, and then posted a craigslist ad in hopes to find homes for them.
With the help of Margo Marsh at San Antonio Doberman Rescue and a wonderful mentor of mine who is associated with another regional rescue, the lady agreed to relinquish custody of them to me.
I took them to the Vet immediately for exams and treatment. The Vet estimated their ages to be approximately six weeks. We have no idea where they came from, but interestingly enough, their dew claws were removed and tails docked, so we assume they came from some breeder somewhere in the area. So sad.
But I had the pleasure of babysitting these guys until the hand-off to SADR. Margo already had approved adopters on her waiting list for puppies. She's kept me informed and even e-mailed the last photo to me, which is one of the boys in his new home at 3.5 months old.
Such a great turnout for these guys! I'm so glad I was able to give 'em a hand at a fresh start in life.
Our boxer, Ben, had a BALL with the pups! At times, I believe he also may have thought they were balls. I had to remind him that they were living, breathing squeaky toys and that he wasn't allowed to break them.
Being examined at the Vet. As you can see, they were thrilled with the process, but both handled it like lil' champs.
After the Vet gave us the okay to let them meet my dogs, Ben could barely contain himself. He LOVED the puppies!
Tessa, on the other hand, was less than thrilled with their presence. I think they interrupted her beauty sleep.
Baby's first bully stick! Yum!
I'm sure A LOT of you know how hard it is to get a clear picture of one puppy, much less two! They NEVER stop moving...until they crash from exhaustion and then it's like 60 to 0 in 4.5 seconds.
When one is sitting still enough to take a decent pic...
...the other one moves!
Mom melted over these babies. It was hard not to want to hang onto one.
But, after seeing this picture of "Boomer" at 3.5 months old and in his new forever home, I knew we did the right thing for both of them. What a treat!

I just LOVE a happy ending, or should I say beginning, for these babies! Thank you for helping them out too. What kind of crazy idiot would dump 2 beautiful baby boys off like trash? Anyhow thanks for sharing their story!

Yes, they were just adorable! And both were a real handful! But as long as they were together in the crate, they never once whined or whimpered, and when out of the crate, they were like little brown flashes of light zipping through the house! I put a couple old cat collars with bells on them to make sure I could keep my eyes and ears on them at all times.
So much fun! But I really don't know how people raise two or more at a time! Whew!
