Talk about a fun time! I spent an hour and a half with Lynn Howe of A New Hope Animal Foundation and seven 7-week-old pit bull terrier puppies yesterday morning. It was absolutely delightful! I took tons of photos, cuddled and kissed puppies and laughed at their silly antics. I also really enjoyed talking with Lynn about her organization and what they do to socialize pups and give them a good foundation before they're sent off to new homes.
There are more puppy photos in my Flickr album.
A New Hope also rescues adult dogs, cats/kittens and rabbits and works closely with Placer County Animal Services and other local groups to make these animals more adoptable by socializing them and giving them at least some basic training.
This is the pup that stole my heart! She's a sweetie, but it's also because of her coloring - I love border collies, and we had a BC mix with a patch over his eye.
