Puppies make me happy so when Cane Rosso Rescue called to ask if I could photograph this litter, I jumped at the chance (as did two other rescue volunteers who also can't get enough of puppy-breath; thank you Debbie and Melinda). You may have read, or saw on the television news, about the urgent overcrowding situation at Dallas Animal Services right now. Cane Rosso Rescue is one of the many rescue groups that answered the plea for help and made a number of visits to the shelter last week to pull animals at risk, including Royal and her litter of 9! They're now safely snuggled in at the Cane Rosso Rescue Center and will soon be available for adoption so if you'd like to claim one of these cuties for your very own, visit their website to submit an application to adopt as it's likely this whole bunch will be spoken for by the time they'll be ready for adoption in 2-3 weeks.

Sweet Momma Royal
Royal has been through a lot in the past few days, but she remains as sweet and gentle as ever and is a wonderful momma to her brood of 9 puppies. Royal will be available for adoption after her puppies have been adopted, if you'd like to meet her, visit Cane Rosso Rescue on their website to learn how.
With the aim of supporting local dog rescue groups, creating a network of foster homes, and ultimately finding homes for abandoned or homeless dogs, Cane Rosso Rescue is a volunteer-based 501(c)3 nonprofit organization based in Dallas, Texas. Founded in March of 2014, when Jay Jerrier, owner of Dallas pizza restaurants, Cane Rosso and Zoli's NY Pizza Tavern, expanded his reach beyond the restaurant world, in order to help save the life of Walter, a Vizsla mix at a shelter in Arlington, TX. A longtime Vizsla and German Shorthaired Pointer owner, Jerrier and Cane Rosso Rescue have since helped find homes for over 400 dogs (and counting!).
