Foster Update 11/05:  She was a adopted by a nice family- but it was technically their daughters puppy & at 21, she was too busy with life and they brought her back. Their loss... this is a beautiful puppy. She loves to snuggle, play, snuggle, play. That about sums her up!  We nick-named her "Splotchy" as that fits her coloring to a tee. She sleeps in her crate, but she also sleeps in bed with us. She's smart, so for sure her new family will need to take her to obedience class so she can learn to be a good canine citizen. Any questions, please email us, we would love for you to meet her.

Lilly's momma, Magnolia, came to us when she was so pregnant we thought she'd pop!  Well, she has had her litter of six puppies and are they adorable.  Here is an update from Lilly's foster:
 
The first foster Mommy (Cathy McIlroy), whose home Magnolia gave birth in, said Lilly aka “Splotchy” was first born. She is the smallest of the 6 and sweet as a candied apple!

Cathy did a wonder job the first 5 weeks (Mom 1 week & the Mom & Puppies 4 more weeks). We took over the second leg of their journey at the end of the 4th week. They run and play all day outside, get tired, run back onto the porch and pile into their puppy beds and conk out. They do not pee-pee or poo on my porch, as they have a doggie dog and 24/7 access to the fenced yard. Inside the house, no guarantee whatsoever!

The whole litter has a wonderful, happy-playful disposition and even though their Mommy was picked up as a stray (pregnant) in Geneva by S.C.A.S. and no one ever came to claim her, the care she received from Pet Rescue by Judy Adoption Center and the foster mom Cathy McIlroy, made all the difference in the world. These pups were with their Mommy and still “comfort nursing” at 8 weeks. They are a bunch of happy, playful, well-adjusted puppies and will make a wonderful addition to a loving “forever” home.
 
According to www.dogbreedinfo.com, Harriers are a swift hunting hounds with an excellent nose and superior stamina in the field. Sources have widely conflicting stories about the origins of this breed. According to one, the earliest Harrier types were crossed with bloodhounds, the Talbot Hound, and even the Basset Hound. According to another, the breed was probably developed from crosses of the English Foxhound with Fox Terrier and Greyhound. In a third source, the Harrier is said to be simply a bred-down version of the English Foxhound. In any case, today's Harrier is between the Beagle and English Foxhound in size and was developed primarily to hunt hare, though the breed has also been used in fox hunting. The name, Harrier, reveals the breed's specialty. Neither hare nor Fox can escape its exceptional sense of smell, its cunning, and its unequaled boldness. Prey chased by the inexhaustible Harrier have been known to collapse from sheer exhaustion. The Harrier is still fairly rare in the United States, but has a long history of popularity as a working pack dog in England. They have a life expectancy of about 10-12 years. The Harrier is somewhat more playful and outgoing than the Foxhound, but not as much as the Beagle. Cheerful, sweet-tempered, and tolerant, it is excellent with children. This pack dog is good with other dogs, but should be supervised with non-canine pets - unless it is raised with them from puppyhood. It prefers life in a pack with people, dogs, or both. This active dog likes to go exploring, sniffing and trailing, so be sure to keep it on a leash or in a safe enclosed area. Some Harriers like to bay.
