Bandit and his siblings were born January 6, 2015 to a dog belonging to a poor family near Antigua. An independent rescuer named Francesca checked on them and the mother, bringing the female food so she could produce enough milk to nurse her babies, deworming the mother and puppies, and making sure they were vaccinated once they were old enough. She constructed shelter for the puppies with plastic wash basins, and has arranged to have the female spayed. Placing the puppies was urgent for her, as mixed breed puppies are not in demand in Guatemala.

The family decided to keep two of the puppies, (both males; they will be neutered by Francesca). We agreed to take the five remaining puppies in and we received them on March 4th.

Bandit is the largest puppy of the five. He is black and tan with a beautiful mask on his face. He is friendly and playful, bold and outgoing. He loves people and loves to play with other dogs. He is very smart and food motivated. He is a delightful puppy and is learning his basic behaviours quickly and joyfully. He is sleeping all night in a crate, riding great in the car, and happily comes when called. He is being raised with a cat and is properly respectful of it.

Bandit has been neutered and is up to date on his puppy vaccines. He is ready for a home of his very own.
