    Meet Gretchen

    Gretchen is 8 weeks old.
    She is American White Bulldog/Boxer Mix. Mom is bulldog and Dad boxer mix. She was runt of the litter. Weighs 7 lbs.
    We got her yesterday from a new rescue group here in town. They were at Tractor Supplies Pet Appreciation Day. My dog groomer is involved with this rescue so we decided to stop by and say hi. Little did we know that Gretchen would pick us to take her home. My hubby laughs "thought you weren't adopting another puppy" well never say never LOL

    She is so sweet. Slept from 11p.m. until 6:30 a.m. this morning. Hoping for the same good night tonight. She loves to give Coco (lab) kisses. Snoopy (beagle) hasn't decided if she is ok yet. He hisses at her and Gretchen looks at him and walks away LOL Sadie thinks she is cool. The cats are ok with her!

    Here's Gretchen.... Yes she is dog#4 for those who are counting LOL

    Congrats!!! She sure is adorable. I had forgotten that you also have Sadie. I hope that Gretchen will fit in well with everyone. It's great that your cats have already accepted her.

    Eeek! PUPPEEEEEEEE! LOL Hi Gretchen, you sure are CUTE!

    Isn't 7 weeks very young to remove puppies from their mom and littermates? Here in RI, it is illegal to remove them prior to 9 weeks; and most breeders hold them to 12 weeks for proper socialization -- though with other dogs in the home, I suspect she will learn her manners, lol.
    I've been BOO'd!!
    Thank you Karen, for fixing my siggy!

    She is just turning 9 weeks this week. A rescue group pulled mom/dad and siblings from a very terrible situation at 4 weeks. They have been socialized with big, small, older, younger inbetween. Mom was able to do her job in safe place. Coco loves getting kisses from Gretchen.
