Puppies that lost mother 2 weeks after being born to be up for adoption

Two puppies who lost their mother two weeks after they were born will soon be given up for adoption by the Animal Rescue League of Boston. The puppies of the Parson Russell Terrier were released in June. “We don’t see that often at all,” said Carolyn Ryan of the Animal Rescue League. “That’s very rare.” The pups, now called Jack and Jill, initially had to be bottle-fed every four hours, around the clock. Since the puppies could no longer rely on their mother, they had to be constantly monitored to ensure their health and safety. “It is very important to wake them up every four hours and give them the food they need because they are very vulnerable at this stage,” said foster parent Margy Ronna. “Then after a few weeks they are ready to learn to walk and walk, and their training range needs to be larger.” Very rarely does ARL see puppies at this age; However, this was a special situation that arose out of tragedy after her mother died, likely due to childbirth complications. The puppies, which are now 7 weeks old, were taken care of by an ARL volunteer and foster parents. The pups have made tremendous progress, are switching to solid foods, and are well on their way to happy and healthy lives. Jack will be ready for adoption in two weeks, and Jill will be ready sometime in late August. Ronna’s time with the pups is short, but their commitment and bond are strong. “It’s very difficult,” she said. “It’s very hard, but you have to get them to the point where they can stay home forever, and that is the goal.” For more information on the ARL’s pet adoption, please click here.

“It is very important to wake them up every four hours and give them the food they need because they are very vulnerable at this stage,” said foster parent Margy Ronna. “Then after a few weeks you will be ready to learn to run and walk, and your training area needs to be expanded.”
