Puppy Adoptions

Puppy Adoptions

We have partnered with Charlotte Dog Club as their preferred veterinarian in the Charlotte and South Charlotte markets.

A question we get quite often is, where can I get a puppy for our family? It is not an easy answer, and unfortunately, in our market, there are not a lot of options. An animal shelter is an opportunity to adopt puppies, dogs, cats, and kittens of all shapes, sizes, breeds, and ages. As our name suggests, they are a gathering of Mixed Pets.

Frequently Asked Questions

Puppies need exercise and should be allowed to play. However, if the puppy needs to be carried from one point to another, it is perfectly fine for a short duration.

If only your puppy’s feet are dirty, just wash the feet or rinse them off. You probably do not need soap. Once your puppy gets to the point that a bath is necessary you want to get a very mild shampoo designed for dogs. 

Do not use adult or baby shampoo. Your puppy shampoo doesn’t need fragrances, cream rinse, or conditioners – a general cleansing shampoo is all you need. Put a small amount on your puppy and wet the body down. Lather it up as much as you can and if the suds do not entirely cover your puppy, add a little bit more shampoo. 

Be very careful around the head area. You do not want to get soap or water into your puppy’s ears and eyes. Next, rinse your puppy thoroughly. And when you think you have rinsed all of the shampoo off (especially with long-haired puppies), rinse one more time. You must make sure that all of the shampoo has been rinsed off. Soap can easily irritate the skin if it stays on your puppy.

Puppies need to have their first, preferably their second set of vaccines before going outside.

Absolutely. Yet, avoid all other dogs.

Yes, 10-week old puppies can sleep through the night. Be sure that your puppy is fed 3-4 hours before bed and all water is taken away at least two hours before bedtime. The puppy should be taken out on a potty break before put to bed.

Absolutely. Please ask your veterinarian for help.
