Ria is one of 6 puppies born in early December to a mama rescued from the street in San Martin Jilotepeque, a city about two and a half hours from Antigua. Her mother was brought in to the small rescue there and delivered her puppies a day later. Mama has since been sterilized.
There are 4 males and 2 females in this litter. They are all beautiful, friendly and very pro-social puppies. They have been handled and played with daily since they were only a week or so old, and have been with lots of adult dogs and other puppies.
Ria and her sister are the smallest of the 6 puppies, and she has similar beautiful black/brown brindle markings to several of her siblings.
Ria is very social and loves to play with the other pups and dogs. She is polite about her play requests and has very good dog-dog manners. She is very friendly and affectionate with people, jumping eagerly into laps for a cuddle, and happily falling asleep there.
These pups are being trained with positive reinforcement and food, and she is a happy, eager to play-the-training-game pup. She already has basic obedience behaviours down and is chilling in her crate happily. She is a lovely, affectionate pup and will be a great addition to a lucky family.
Ria is sterilized, up-to-date on her vaccines, and healthy. She is now available for adoption. Ria is a little sensitive to loud traffic noises, and we think she would do better in a suburban environment rather than in a busy, inner city one.
