Baby Belle entered the world on May 01, 2016. She was the biggest puppy born and mama and I had to work together to remove the sac. While growing those first few weeks, she seemed to be the one gaining weight the fastest. When they went to their wellness check at 26 days old, she was the girl who weighed 3.32 pounds. She loved to sleep and play rough and noisily with her siblings. At 7 weeks old, they were given the puppy aptitude test. Baby Belle was the only one to mark well at every single task. The trainer even thought it was a fluke and repeated some of the tasks. Because of this, a mom came to see them all, but chose Baby Belle with the hopes of training her to be a Service Dog. She was the first of the puppies to be adopted. It's been a year since they were all born, and Soldier is doing just fine with her canine sister and human family. Her human dad even returned safely from his tour of duty recently.
Caliah Blue is an Irish Staffordshire. She is now 11 years old and a great first dog. She meets all the fosters with grumbling, but acceptance.
