Well I think its lovely that you took the puppies, and are now providing for their needs and looking for homes. It does not matter what breed they are. They are babies totally dependent on the good will of human beings. I hope you find them homes. Tell us more. How many are there? Males/females? Have you any pictures?

As others are mentioning, this will certainly be a stressful time for such young dogs, but I believe you can minimize their stress by maintaining a calm environment for them and giving them good nutrition. Together, they will provide comfort and stability for each other. Even a long car ride can be made less stressful with good handling, which to me starts with a calm and loving attitude by all who interact with them. So long as they are kept well fed and well hydrated, and allowed plenty of rest, they have a good chance to remain healthy.

Good luck with them and do let us know how things work out! There are so many people out there looking for puppies at any given moment, its "just" a matter of making the connections. In fact I have friends here in NH who are looking for a dog, although probably not such a young pup. It sounds like you are in the midwest anyway...

Just one more thing to mention to all who are concerned about transport of young pups. Our 1 year old dog came to us via airplane at the age of 12 weeks, from Arkansas to New Hampshire. It was a 6 hour day's journey, but truly she did fine and recovered quickly from the stress, never got sick. Delta airline puts puppies in the cabin area behind the cockpit and the pups are hand carried to the ticket counter for pick up, no riding around on baggage carousels or anything like that. My point is, with careful handling, dogs can make long journeys just fine. In fact up here in the North East shelters often have a shortage (!) of dogs and various caravans are arranged for transporting dogs and puppies from the south up to here where families are waiting for them. It can be done safely and many puppies and families are very happy as a result!

Well, it may not be a recognized registered breed, but it looks like some people are calling a line of dogs by this name.

By any other name would smell as sweet;"


Does it really matter? If they are sweet puppies, and by definition to me a puppy IS sweet, then they deserve celebration.

as far as Iam concerned, they are a "teacup" or "toy" beagle...being bred for nothing but size and $$$

thats like saying a "teacup chihuahua" is a new breed.

Yes, that was my sense of the website too, but nevertheless, they are little lives now, that need love.

Overall, so long as the breeder is taking good care of the dogs and placing them in nice homes (questionable if they are doing much screening though... pay pal payment plan) there's not a lot of difference to me in terms of motivations here than many other breeders who produce pet quality puppies of standard, recognized breeds.

There are very few breeders out there working hard to improve breeds of show quality dogs for the show world, or working quality dogs for the hunting/working world, IMO. And even then I find a lot of that problematic in terms of the extremes that are bred into dogs, sloping backs in shepherds, mangled skulls in terriers, ignoring temperament over conformational concerns, etc.

Yes, overall there are too many dogs being produced! But that does not devalue the OP's motivation in rescuing, so I guess I was a little concerned she/he might have felt somewhat made fun of because of comments about the breed.

no one is making fun...she stated they are a 'real breed" its being pointed out that they are clearly not. If she tells all the new homes that they have a special new breed, she is just perpetuating/spreading the cycle of ignorance. Which is not helpful.

ditto this... it seems like a harmless point, what we call the dogs, but when people aren't educated about this sort of thing, it leads to more and more BYB and puppy mill dogs being bred, and consequently destroyed... education is very important...
