Sadie, The Pregnant Foster

Well, after a VERY long pause, longest I have ever had between as a matter of fact, I am back with a new foster, and she is pregnant!


Please welcome my latest foster, Sadie! This poor girl found herself neglected and pregnant, until a family took her in, however they currently don't have the time to raise a litter, so this beautiful German Shepherd is here to stay with me to whelp her litter and raise them, then she will go back to her loving family, and her babies will all find great homes through the pound. She is the sweetest girl, and though she might weigh 70-80 plus pounds right now, she is an extreme cuddle bug and would happily sit in a lap! Probably a week out I am guessing from puppies, and let me tell you, her belly is HUGE! Good chance there are 12 or more in there. Stay tuned for plenty of pup-dates upcoming!

Thanks! Yeah, it's been like, four months I think? Very quiet winter. I had a couple fosters, but they were super short term and only stayed a couple days. Glad to be back!

You're back! I was hoping that you might return with another litter. It's great that you'll be able to take part in the entire journey. Momma and her soon-to-be-born puppies are in great hands. Yay!!!

So glad you're back! I don't post much, but I check in to see if anything new is happening, and I always check to see if you're fostering again. Exciting times ahead!

Surprisingly fast, but Sadie went into first stage labor yesterday afternoon, and delivered her first puppy just before Midnight last night, continued throughout the wee hours of the morning, and we are currently sitting at 9 puppies! Her first 7 came pretty close together, then she took a three hour pause, I could have swore she was done, but always stick right by them for at least four hours after just to be safe, and out came number 8; this girl had me really scared for a short time, she was born feet first with no sack and she was full of fluid, not moving at all, thankfully I have read up on the "accordion maneuver" to expel fluids from a puppy, I really feel knowing how to do that saved her life! She had fluids coming out her nose and mouth in large amounts. She is doing great now thankfully, along with all the other babies. Puppy 9 came without issue thankfully. Momma Sadie and I are exhausted, and I am running on about 2 hours of sleep, but we are pushing through it! Names and individual photos to come soon, so stay tuned!

Good job to both of you! What a blessing to have such a dedicated foster mom to help these pregnant dogs and their pups both during and after the birthing process! Looking forward to new pictures, names and the growing and training process of these precious pups!

Officially introducing the Medieval Litter! Since Sadie's name means Princess, we decided to go with a medieval/royal theme for this bunch of sweet babies. Names are listed on each photo. We have one golden baby, two seal with tan points, one black, and five black an tan. All are doing great today, and I am getting tons of photos which I will be uploading soon, still waiting on the internet to return. Until then, enjoy these!

Abbie, girl.


Baron, boy

Courage, boy

Crusader, boy

Ella, girl

Knight, boy

Mace, boy.

Marian, girl.

Queen, girl.
