Meet, Gawain, one of Avalon’s 5 pups born on May 30. Mama Avalon was a good mama, and it shows. These puppies received the best of care, even though there were some health setbacks in the beginning – they got sarcoptic mange.
All were carefully treated for 2 months, with Revolution and organic shampoos to kill the little mangy mites. They’re all better now.
Gawain is a special happy, gentle and smart pup, submissive to his bigger sister Guinevere, who he lives with. Sometimes Gawain can be skittish, and sits back to observe the situation before moving forward. He is increasingly more confident, but still easily scared by larger dogs. His family needs to help him feel more confident through proper training, and ensure no other dogs take advantage of sweet Gawain. He is very playful with his humans, loving chase and wrestling.
They’ve both been very well socialized and love kids and other animals, car rides, walks. Basic obedience group classes are always recommended for pups – they have a lot to learn. Regular manners training and mental activity is important to keep them out of trouble (like digging in the yard, or chewing on furniture or clothing) Typical puppy behaviors you’ll be required to work through with love and kindness, activities, training and redirecting to what he should be doing instead.
Gawain is nearly 5 months old; is chipped, neutered and has all vaccinations. If you are interested in adopting Gawain, please contact his Representative: firstname.lastname@example.org. Gawain’s adoption fee is $600.
Guinevere has been growing and playing with her brother, Gawain, at their foster home since August 17, when they were separated from Mama and the other puppies to begin their transition to independence and a new family.
Guinevere is a confident and a bit feisty girl, persistent in her play, and a bit bossy with her brother. Another active, tolerant pup to guide her is preferred; as well as a family willing to advance on her training and manners. Guinevere loves to be near her humans and would probably like to sleep in your bed if that’s ok. Leash training, house training and regular exercise will be important as Guinevere grows and asserts herself.
Both pups have been exposed to social situations and are very happy to greet people and dogs. They took to potty training well, but work is still needed in their new family. They’ve learned “sit” and “off”. They first would sleep together in a crate, but now they’ve grown and are comfortable sleeping on a blanket within their puppy pen. They have not chewed many items that are not theirs, but as she grows, curiosity will get the best of her, as well as those new teeth that are soon to show up.
We are looking for a family with dog experience, willing to train and commit to this lucky, active puppy. Guinevere will be spayed, chipped, have all her vaccines and 1-year rabies at the time of adoption.
Please inquire to SCGRRescue.org at email@example.com. All interested families must have an application and home interview completed and on file to be considered for Guinevere’s new family. Guinevere’s adoption fee is $600
