Puppies left abandoned in a shoe box when they were only 2 days old! UPDATE-KODIAK HAS BEEN ADOPTED!!

Newborn Kodiak

Kodiak was rescued in May along with four siblings who were placed in a shoe box and delivered to a fire station in Irving when they were only 2 days old. We received an email from the Irving Shelter that they needed someone to bottle feed the pups. When Elise picked them up, there was a hand written note attached to the shoe box stating the puppies were labradoodles and that the mother had died (no details how). The puppies did fine for about four days but then we were heart-broken when they just started dying-even after trips to the ER vet and Dr. Neeman. We never had a diagnosis as to what caused the deaths.  Kodiak is the only survivor and is looking for a loving forever family!
Kodiak is growing up and still cute as ever!

Now Kodiak is 13 weeks old and weighs 21 pounds, and will likely weigh over 100 pounds when fully grown.  We thought he was a labradoodle but as he continues to grow, we now believe he is either Great Pyrenees or a Pyrenees/Lab mix.  He is very sweet and calm.  He does all the fun puppy things like chew stuff-even stuff he is not supposed to, but with those eyes, he is quickly forgiven!  Though it will be very difficult for his foster mom to part with him (she has had him since he was 2 days old) we are looking for a new home for him so that more dogs like him can be rescued.  Kodiak would enjoy a lively family with kids who are around to play with him and continue to spoil him.  He loves other dogs and cats too and will make a great addition to a very lucky family.  Kodiak is now old enough to be adopted out so we're looking for a wonderful forever family to take in this special little guy.  To request an application send an email to  Thanks!
