“(Moms and babies) are usually at high risk in the shelter, so we’re going to… take them out and get them to safety,” said Dani Caouette, the owner of the rescue. “We took them out when they were one day old, and now they’re 10 weeks old. So they’re all looking for a house, and mom is also looking for her house.
Kayla is an incredibly easy-going puppy who enjoys kissing, playing with other dogs, and receiving love from children, and Caouette has noted that she would make a great family dog.

“It can fit into any home,” said Caouette. “The first thing she did when I met her was she started kissing me. She was amazing even with her babies… She is just perfect.
The puppies – two boys and a girl named Sheldon, Lionel and Skylar – are filled with playful puppy energy, with Skylar being a bit more shy than his brothers.
“They all love puppies, ready to find their homes,” said Caouette. “We’re just finishing their vaccines, and then they’ll be spayed and spayed as soon as they’re old enough. “
Although Kayla is already clean, sterilized and up to date on her vaccines, the puppies will need more time as they grow older, according to Caouette.
“We tell people, make sure you have enough time for training,” she said. “There’s potty training, they’re going to bite the bullet and end up getting fixed … for you.”
