Cassie and her daughters—Lilly, Honey, Coco, and Rosie—were at the Canine Control Center, San Miguel’s kill shelter. When we showed up looking for dogs to bring into the SPA, they had been there for a couple of weeks, and their time was running out. We are so pleased to have saved this family!
Mom Cassie is a sweetheart. Medium-sized, about 2 years old, she loves getting attention and enjoys going for walks. Small, but still growing, her daughters are about 7 months old. They are each playful, affectionate, and love to be cuddled. Rosie was already adopted. We have introduced the other three to a leash and collar and are teaching them about walks on the street. Honey was the bravest, but we needed to carry Lilly and Coco out to the street to give them a head start. For all three, we tossed small pieces of kibble in front of them to entice them to move a few inches forward. They caught on quickly.
