We are Ladybugs puppies! There are 7 of us, 2 girls and 5 boys. Our mom is a 20lb beagle but we don’t know our dad. Our mom was found as a very pregnant stray in Gloucester, VA. When no one claimed her she was brought to BTTR and delivered 7 healthy puppies on 12/2. We may be beagles or beagle mixes, we may grow to be between 20-55lbs it is hard to say at this age. We are young puppies! We are not housebroken or leash trained, we will chew, nip, jump up, scratch, pee on your carpet, and play with anything we can find. We will need to be taught house manners, how to walk on a leash, basic obedience classes, and receive puppy socialization. Our mom is looking for a home and will be ready to go home before we are.
