Heres what we have goin.
Lady in Syracuse is in foreclosure... has to be out of the house by the 31st of Jan. This Thursday! good lord lets wait till the last minute.
1 yr old male blue
2 yr old female red nose
FIVE 2 week old puppies from mama red nose and daddy blue
6 month old red nose from mama red nose' previous litter.
Lady says they are all very sweet and okay with other dogs..(well we cannot expect that of mama right now..but she says before the puppies came she was good with other dogs.)
Lady says she has tried SPCA and all over.. they are all full of pits of course... at least she isn't just handing them off to just anyone...
I could just cry. no way in heck I can take the mom and puppies she would stress right out here.
anyone have room for one??
any ideas on who can help mama whelp some pups?

poor nutrition all over her...She is much better today and loving the extra good food and formula and pups are active and doing well this afternoon..had a nice bath.. momma even accepts a rain coat to go out in the yard . Jen says mama is a cute little penut.. Jen the foster ended up with the 1 yr old blue male since the lady was running about 3 hours late she "just dropped him off with the mom and pups" .. oy vey
Jen said he is a big muscle butt and doing okay.. he is very happy to let her be the boss but very hot for the other dogs so he is crated and rotated..she said he is calm in a covered crate .. she'll get him over to Tompkins on Monday. I hope he is able to chill out and be a good a boy..
The 6 month old went to the SPCA in Syracuse..
I'm glad all the dogs got a place to go for the moment..
I was really happy that I heard back from other organizations I had contacted for help and there was good communication and all..I don't feel so much like "the crazy pit bull lady" in my area today.

puppies get a real good start with them I think. Lucky dogs in the program.
I heard back from AFF too, Kate sent me a ton of places to contact, very nice email .. she also facilitated the SPCA taking the blue boy, that was a huge help.
worked out super cool.. could not have happened at a better time!
We finally adopted our perfect senior pitty Little Misty to a home in December. She was here 18 months! The couple lives about a hour from Sydney's area and had visited Out of the Pits adoption and fund raising events and raved about them..

I coordinated a transport once for a Cane Corso pup shelter to foster .. when the Org's new person in charge adopted the pup out several months later the foster mom was flipping out because the Org did not want her to do the home visit, drive the dog to the next state over to the new home.. etc..she was very attached to the dog and just sick with worry. She was seriously considering hiding the dog. It was a horrible ugly mess and the foster finally got her way and got to deliver the dog to the new home..and it ended well.

I can understand why organizations have policies like that.
Miscommunication is terrible thing.
I'm not real keen on passing information either, especially from owner surrenders.. we never do.. they sign over the dog and they do not get to know where the dog goes.
courtesy post dogs we do a little different and the owner is involved of course but we do screen first before connecting the two.
With fosters I let the foster make the ultimate decision on the home but I do screen the new home too and give my input.. (because like my b/f says... SHE JUST WANTS TO BE THE BOSS!)
I suppose if I was really against one I would pull the plug but hasn't happened yet.
