New puppy

Jake and pup

This is Jersey, our new puppy. Jersey was rescued form a ditch in Arkansas with his two litter-mates on January 7. He lived in a foster home in Arkansas until Bruni spotted him on PetFinder.com. Bruni applied to adopt him through Great Dog Rescue New England, and he was quickly transferred from Arkansas to Blackstone Valley Veterinary Hospital in Uxbridge. A previous dog adopter visited our home to make sure the puppy would be OK, and Bruni and Jake brought him home yesterday afternoon.

Jersey is about three months old and seems to be potty trained already. He is some sort of rat terrier mix. His foster mom and the Blackstone Valley Veterinary Hospital took good care of him--he is clean, has had all his shots, and was neutered.

Jake is excited to have a dog, and Jersey seems happy to have new companion in a loving home. Jake stayed up late last night and awoke early this morning to take Jersey out for potty walks. Jersey was a little shy last night, but this morning he is more playful. Jake and Jersey have been inseparable since they found each other yesterday. Both are happy little pups.
