    Yep, I need to just go ahead and have 'sucker' tattooed on my forehead. The dog catcher came into the clinic I work at hoping someone would take them, otherwise they would go to the humane society and be put down (strange how everyone looked at me). They were under a burning house, of course the owners (hoarders from what the dog catcher said, I'm thinking mostly stuff, but probably several dogs to, several of which burned in the fire) didn't mention the puppies til after the fire was out, they were cold and wet when they got to me. There were actually 5, and I was originally taking all of them, but a co worker that comes in later came in and wanted to take a few (she thinks she might like to keep one), so I let her take her pick! She took one boy (the runt, she liked his heart shaped spot) and one girl. Leaving me w/ two girls and a boy. Sadly the boy passed away the next day, but I still have both little girls!

    No idea what breed they are, I think they were only a few days at most when I got them, I've had them 5 days now, I'm dying to hear how their siblings are doing, but won't get a chance to find out til Wednesday.
    This one is my good one! Big fatty, eats like a champ!
    This ones the challanging one, but so far so good!

    Anyway, I try not to get suckered to often, although I did bring home a kitten a few months ago (who's still here), but it just didn't seem right to let them die.

    Aww, what sweet babies. I almost hate to ask - what happened to Mama, did the fire get her?

    I wish you all the best with them! Poor little things deserve a break.

    Bless you for taking them in.

    [​IMG] I bottle fed some puppies before, so much fun and sleep deprivation lol
    you have no idea what they are? it'll be fun to watch them as they get older and make guess' about the breeds that they might be!
    If they were at least a few days old when you got them its a good sign they got colostrom which is important for there first little immune system

    It is very likely the mom burned in the fire, but I don't know that for sure, I was told the home owners drove away w/ some dogs in their car, but some dogs also died in the fire. Heard today that their siblings are doing well! She named them Blaze and Amber. I do have one small hint to breed, one has a bob tail, I'm leaning towards some small terrier type dog, maybe jack russel or rat terrier, it will be fun to watch and guess as they grow!
