    Default Rescue Puppy farm puppies

    Well I have my work cut out for me LOL. I have been very busy with my six dogs, training everyone

    Two little feral's arrived over a week ago now. Puppy farms stink major........these little guys are in quarantine on our place.......Love to eat now finally, but had no manners. I can now finally be near them when they eat and they now say hello and will now play around me ( showing off) when i sit with them and even play a little tug.
    They really greet me happily now and finally hubby..they were terrified of him, but have decided he is good. Food is not able to be used as a treat/reward, no luring for these guys,they rather not eat at all. I am hoping to use "play-drive" in the future, hence trying to get them to tug.. . It has taken me four days to get them to just eat from my hand, without any pressure at all.
    They are not the two girl I expected...they are younger puppies one male and one female. I have called the little girl Tassie, because she was like a little Tassie Devil, growling and shaking. She is now a silly playful tough little girl. Playing a little tug and has put on so much weight. They have finally stopped growling and barking at our dogs, whom they can see from a distance. The little boy is "Curly", he has a curly ear and I think I have fallen for him....Very sweet and adorable, much easier to get near from day one and very cute. he is so cute at tug and so soft. they now both play and bounce around.
    Again no luring...Cannot afford to do "nothing in life is for free" as they are too thin and not healthy enough. So we are just guiding at present and they are getting the hang of it......Only praise and petting as reward, because food makes them a little anxious. hard to get them to eat from my hand, they will only do it when we just sit and cuddle.

    Not sure what some a$$hole did with food to make the way they are, very worried around food, as if teased a lot with food.

    They love bones and do a great job demolishing them to nothing, poops are good now...no more sloppy

    They are a training challenge. But amazingly enough are learning to pee and poop outside the kennel room. they love their little crate and blanket to sleep in together and that is kept clean by them so there is hope for them. Pictures have not been successful as they are terrified of the "big eye"...But they will be OK...they really know dog language calming signs..lip licking and yawning has really made them accept me and Mike.
    Just sitting in their room and looking away lip-licking and yawning is why they came to visit us..we sure look silly doing it, but if it works it work

    Just awesome newfie, its fantastic to read that someone has the opportunity and the drive to help these unfortunate souls. I really hope the authorities come down hard on the people responsible for these poor dogs.

    Sounds like a big improvement already Newfsie, glad they're eating and beginning to get used to you and hubby. Bless their little hearts...

    Aw poor little things. I think they have won the lotto by landing in your house though... they will be very well cared for. I hope their previous owners don't have any more animals...

    There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.

    Good on you Newfie. Puppies will be fine under your care and guidance.

    Will the puppy farmer not legally be able to own any dogs in the future? Just curious about the legalities whether or not it goes on their permanent record that will follow them from state to state or country to country.

    Puppy Farmers are puppy farmers forever..stopped somewhere and will move on and start again. Unless a Breed Group of people takes a great interest in stopping them..There used to be a newfie Puppy farm (Bernese, Leonbergers and maremma's too) He was stopped by the newfoundland Society..They chased him and found every other place he retried to start........They took legal actions against him and became extremely strict in where undesexed pups went. Advertised everywhere and anywhere to stop him and notify the public of him and literally hounded him. He went from state to state, but the giant community is small and found him each time....Some of the newfie community was even ending up in court for defamation, but they just merrily went on the chase. It takes dedication to stop Puppy Farms and bucket loads of cash.......

    I hope these are stopped, but who knows

    Hugs and kisses to your two nebies Nwefsie!

    Soph is also food-anxious, and when left to her own devices with food presented in a bowl, she has no clue what to dowith it, so just trots away, looking anxiously over her shoulder as if to see who's following? Breaks my heart and makes me furious, all at once.

    And more that are camera anxious! That's why no images of the Soph yet - she gets all quivery and jibbery when I put anything in my hands. I hate to think what she's had to go through in her 5-1/2 years trapped at her farm. Doesn't quite trust the husband yet either, but has taken food from him, so it's a start.

    One day I hope that it will be very difficult to buy a generic, 'anydog' puppy unless it's from an adoption centre or breeder... we can live in hope I guess.
