Isa is one of eleven gorgeous puppies who were rescued just before birth by friends Gerson and Tessa. The couple found a mother dog giving birth behind the market in Antigua on July 20, 2015. They couldn’t leave her to ahve her babies on the street, and took her home. To their unhappy surprise, Mama Kate as they dubbed her proceeded to produce 12 babies! Eleven survived, and so began a long two months caring for mama and a mob of little ones.

We took the babies for periodic play dates and social times and received the bulk of the puppies upon weaning. Several went into local foster homes. The pups have all be sterilized, are up to date on their vaccinations, and several have now been adopted in the Bay area.

Isa (short for Isabel) is a darling puppy, friendly, outgoing, playful and smart. She plays well with other dogs and puppies. She is being clicker trained and has already learned many basic behaviors including “sit”, “down”, a hand target, and to walk on a leash. She has a great recall and is learning to sleep in a crate.

Isa and her sister Olivia were born with naturally docked tails.

Isa is up to date on her shots (will still need her last ones), has been spayed and dewormed. She is almost house trained, is crate trained, and is great with dogs and kids. She is in foster in the  Bay area and is ready for her furever family to find her.
