Hi--my name is Black Pearl! I am part of the Marlboro Pups. I was born at my foster momma's home in January and now I am getting ready to find a home of my own.
My foster mom says I'm a gentle soul. I am the smallest in the litter even though I was first to be born, I prefer to be last when foster mom is introducing new things. But that just means I will need a new family who is aware and will guide me and show me life is not scary. If you think I'm your girl, well here I am to cuddle, and learn new things.
I am just a baby and my adopters should be respectful of my small size and puppy needs, such as not being left alone for more than 4 hours at a time, and to teach me proper manners with play, potty, leash walking and crating. In return, I promise to try really hard to make you proud and to give lots of puppy kisses!
Please note that because this puppy is so young, it has only received 2 of the required 3 puppy distemper vaccinations. This is very IMPORTANT because it means that the immune system will not be fully functioning until about 16 weeks of age. Until then, the puppy MUST stay out of public places where it could be exposed to the germs of other dogs. These no puppy zones include all pet stores, dog parks, and for apartment dwellers, areas used by other dogs. These requirements are strictly for the puppy’s medical safety and longevity.
This puppy is microchipped and up to date on age appropriate vaccines and monthly preventatives.
This puppy is fostered in Woodbridge, VA and will be ready to go home on 6 March!
This dog's bio is based off the experiences of the foster and/or volunteers of OPH as well as any information that we received from the shelter or previous owner. This is very important because it means that while they may act one way in the foster’s home, you may experience something different in your home.
