Echoes pups are 1 week old today. Both are doing well, although Ember, the pup taken by c-section will be staying with her new owner (our vet Nichole). I had planned on bringing Ember home Monday to reintroduce to with her mom and sister. After visiting at the vet office, Nichole told me about a couple of other issues Ember has that she may or may not grow out of. It is also possible something else may surface as she matures. With these concerns I would not send Ember to a new owner as a working dog. It is my hope she will continue to grow into a healthy pet for Nichole and her family. Nicole has been caring for and feeding Ember since she was taken via c-section. Nicole expressed interest in taking Ember. This was a great opportunity that I agreed to. Ember could not be in better hands. I will be doing some updates on Ember in the upcoming weeks.
Ember’s sister Ellie is healthy and doing great here at home. She has more than doubled her weight in 1 week. Echo is taking very good care of her. Ellie will be heading to a great hunting family in Missouri in about 8 weeks. I also plan on adding another pup to our pack in several weeks. Thank you to everyone that inquired about Ember’s status. I posted a picture of Echo at 1 week below Ellie’s photo. Notice the resemblance.
