The Story of LaLa and her puppies

LaLa was found in a local field with two canine companions in late September. Covered in scars and bearing the heavy burden of pregnancy, her past had evidently been a difficult one to endure.

On October 13th, a compassionate Ruff Start foster stepped in, whisking LaLa away from a local shelter to give her a safe haven to birth her puppies. Just two days later, LaLa welcomed nine precious pups into the world: Givenchy, Versace, Valentino, Balenciaga, Prada, Hermes, Fendi, Gucci, and Armani.

Motherhood was a challenge LaLa hadn’t prepared for, and she found herself struggling to embrace her new responsibility. Her lack of care prompted three dedicated Ruff Start fosters to unite in a mission to bottle-feed and nurture these newborns. Remarkably, all the puppies are thriving and celebrated their one-week milestone on Sunday.

LaLa remains separated from her puppies, enjoying the comforts of life as a beloved pet. Her physical condition suggests a history of being subjected to less-than-ideal treatment. Despite the scars of her past, LaLa’s spirit remains undaunted. She adores people and is calm, submissive, loving, and obedient. She has basic training and could spend all day with her stuffies and giving her people kisses. LaLa is now seeking a new foster home where she can continue to heal, flourish, and embrace her journey to recovery.

We invite you to contribute and make a difference in the lives of these ten newcomers to the Ruff Start family. Like all Ruff Start dogs, they will receive the highest standard of veterinary care before they join their new families, with an estimated cost of $350 per dog. Your generous donation paves the way for brighter futures for LaLa and her puppies, and we are deeply grateful for your support.
